What is Polaroid about?
Polaroid is a horror film about a group of young friends who all take pictures together with a new polaroid camera that they have found. Out of nowhere, one of the characters that is in the group photo of the friends dies very unexpectedly. This shocks the whole town and the police and people are baffled as to what has happened. Soon after this incident, another one of the teenagers in the pictures dies, which begins the belief in the owner of the polaroid that maybe they are dying one by one from the order of the picture. The friends don’t believe her when she tries to explain this to them, until they light the picture on fire and one of them burns into flames out of the blue. They see a creepy blacked out character in the back of the pictures of them, and soon realise that it is this creature that is targeting them. Can they defeat this horrid villain who is after them through the picture? Watch Polaroid to find out. Polaroid is currently on Netflix, so if you are a member of this video on demand service then you can watch it on there.
Would horror lovers enjoy this film?
Probably not. The jump scares were quite cheap, and the story line was terrible. The story line was as if a twelve-year-old wrote it thinking that it was a good idea. The horror film itself wasn’t badly filmed and the acting was well acted but it really just wasn’t scary. There was maybe one jump scare that was slightly well done, but it didn’t make up for the lack of horror that was throughout the rest of the movie. Overall, if you haven’t seen many horror films then Polaroid might be scary for you, but if you are an experienced horror addict then you can probably give this film a miss.
