The Gracefield Incident Review (2017)


The Gracefield Incident is found footage horror about extraterrestrial.

The Story

Gracefield is a city in Quebec, Canada. Three couples are spending a long weekend in a luxurious cabin to celebrate one of the friend’s birthday.  Things get interesting when suddenly a meteorite comes crashing near the cabin and they decided to investigate.

The Review (Spoiler Free)

The Gracefield is found footage sci-fi horror.  What’s so unique about this movie is that the lead character Matt played by Mathieu Ratthe lost one of his eye from a car accident and decided to put a camera on his one of fake eye and record everything.  I am not sure why he decided to put a camera in his eye.  Only reason why you put the camera in fake eye is to record something in secret.  But the movie didn’t really play on the concept of his camera eye.  The movie just became another found footage film.  There was no difference if he had a camera eye or just held a camera in his hand. In order to break off the POV angle, the movie introduce a friend who also brought new camera to the cabin.  We are seeing most of the footage from his camera.

There is also little bit of back story of lead character Matt and his wife. Matt and he wife lost a baby when they got in a car accident. We see that Matt is struggle with loss of his baby during the trip.  This back story has something to do with the ending of the movie. But it didn’t really worked for me.

The movie start off very quickly.  Within 30 minutes into the movie, we get to see the meteorite crashing into the cabin, and the action starts right away.

We get to see the alien early in the movie.  Towards the end of the movie, the movie reveals the alien completely and it just looks like any other typical CGI alien from many other movies.  I wasn’t really impressed with CGI alien.

The movie sets up for surprise ending, but that is the worst part of the movie. I wasn’t impressed.

The Gracefield Incident is written and directed by Mathieu Ratthe. He is also the lead character in the movie.

In the Nutshell

The Gracefield Incident has a potential but fail short.  It doesn’t really stand out from any other UFO found footage films. I give 2 out of 5 stars.
