    This movie was awesome. Seriously, if you like ghost/horror movies it's a must watch.

    Wielding an iPhone 4 and a Polaroid camera, female protagonist, "Bird", yes her name is actually Bird, acquires a cursed camera while working at an antique store. Imagine a movie shot entirely in the dark, this is that movie. As each character forgets about the existence of electricity, social outcast Bird, manages to fit an entire Polaroid camera into her pocket and attends a Halloween party in the middle of December. She then proceeds to photograph all her friends, including herself, which causes most of them to be killed by a spooky shadow. If I could give this movie zero stars I would because I could write a better movie.

    This movie felt like it should have released in the mid 2000's and it would have completely fit in. Unfortunately, this is a poorly written, not scary and predictable horror film. Polaroid follows a senior in high school named Bird Fitcher (Kathryn Prescott) who works at an antique shop. One day her co-worker Tyler (Davi Santos) gives Bird an old Polaroid Camera he bought from a garage sale as a gift because she covered his shift. Bird is excited as she is into old tech and especially photography. She takes a photo of Tyler and then leaves for school. That night Tyler is locking up the store when he's attacked by something and killed. Meanwhile Bird goes to a part with her friends Kasey (Samantha Logan), Devin (Keenan Travey) and Mina (Priscilla Quintana). There at the part Bird talks to Connor (Tyler Young) a guy she has a somewhat crush on. They all decide to take a photo with Bird's Polaroid camera and think nothing of it. Bird learns about Tyler's fate shortly after and realizes that in the Polaroids she's taken there appears to be a shadowy figure behind whoever is about to die. The shadow jumps around and get's the person when they least expect it. So the gang decides to look into where the camera came form and because of this uncover a very sinister crime that took place many years ago. This could literally be the plot to any terrible horror film, but that's it for this one. The movie has a lot of issues. None of the characters are very interesting and I truthfully did not care about what happened to them. The movie is short thankfully and it does get right into the action horror segments of people trying to escape. It's just that it's never entertaining. This movie became a real frag very early on. This is a definite skip. Do yourself a favor and watch something else and don't waste an hour and a half of your life like I just did.

    A terrible rip off of the classic goosebumps book "Say Cheese and Die!" but at least that tale had a creative concept

    Well, this movie does have some rare moments where I was mildly entertained. The second half of this film is an absolute disgrace. The color palette is so disgusting, everything is a mish-mash of green and grey and it looks horrible. The acting was fine. But the screenplay, visuals are so bad. I remember watching Goosebumps doing "Say cheese and die" and even that, was more original, fun, dare I say it, scarier. This is a boring film with nothing new to offer. I would NOT recommend it.

    Not the worst film by any stretch, just boring. I found myself completely disinterested in the middle act, it serving no real purpose. But the first act and the last twenty minutes or so were okay. A couple of cool shots thrown in there to break up the constant darkness of the rest of the film and at times the cast did feel like they were trying. Not bad but wouldn't watch again.

    While the idea behind the movie did provide some twists and turns, the execution included too many cliches for my liking.

    I liked it, it was super creative and the double switch of the villain was thoughtful! The monster was also pretty scary and there was a good amount of suspense.
