Exists is a 2014 American found footage horror film directed by Eduardo Sanchez, who co-directed the 1999 hit movie, The Blair Witch Project. The movie stars Samuel Davis, Dora Madison, Roger Edwards, and Chris Osborn, and follows a group of friends who go on a trip to a remote cabin in the woods, where they come face to face with a terrifying creature that terrorizes them.

The movie begins with a group of five friends – Brian, Matt, Dora, Todd, and Elizabeth – driving to a remote cabin in the woods for a weekend of camping and partying. While they are on their way, they accidentally hit an animal on the road, which they assume to be a deer. However, when they arrive at the cabin, they discover that their actions have awoken an angry creature that now stalks them in the woods.

The friends begin to experience strange occurrences, including finding strange footprints and hearing strange noises in the woods. Things take a turn for the worse when they find their car has been destroyed, and they are stranded in the woods with no way to call for help. Soon, they realize that they are being hunted by a vicious creature that is determined to kill them.

The film uses the found footage style, with the camera being operated by the characters themselves. The film captures the tense atmosphere well with its shaky camera work and dark lighting.

As the friends try to escape, they are forced to confront the creature, which appears to be a Bigfoot-like monster that has developed a taste for human flesh. The creature is shown in glimpses throughout the movie, and the suspense builds as the friends try to evade it.

The relationship dynamics between the characters also adds to the tension, with unresolved issues between the friends adding to their already dire predicament. The director does a good job of keeping the audience invested in the characters’ plight, making their survival seem more important.

The film’s pacing is excellent, with the tension building steadily throughout the movie. There are several jump scares, which are used effectively, without feeling cheap or overused. The creature design also stands out, with the filmmakers opting for a practical makeup and prosthetic effects approach, which is a refreshing change from the CGI-heavy monster movies of today.

Overall, Exists is an impressive horror film that delivers heart-stopping suspense, great pacing, and compelling characters. The film builds tension effectively, with a well-designed creature, and a great use of the found footage style. Regardless of whether you are a fan of the found footage genre or not, Exists is a movie that will keep you on the edge of your seat until the very end.

Exists is a 2014 horror movie with a runtime of 1 hour and 26 minutes. It has received poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 5.2 and a MetaScore of 22.
