Exist (2014) vs Willow Creek (2013)


Exist Review (Spoiler Free)

I already reviewed Willow Creek while back, so in this post, i’ll be reviewing Exist. The story for Exists is pretty simple. Group of young people decided to party at a cabin somewhere deep in the forest in Texas. Just like typical found footage film, there is one guy in the movie who decided to bring a camera and document everything.  Of course, they are terrorized by bigfoot.  Soon the movie is about who is going to survive. It does have pretty good suspense and pretty good thrill ride.  

We get to see the bigfoot early in the movie. The bigfoot makeup and special effects are pretty descent.

Exists is directed by Eduardo Sanchez who also directed Blair Witch which paved the wave to found-footage popularity.

Exist vs Willow Creek Comparison

Exists and Willow Creek are both found-footage film about bigfoot. I already reviewed Willow Creek while back, but I do want to make quick comparison between these two movies.

In Exists, you get to see what bigfoot looks like in the middle of the movie. But in Willows Creep, they don’t really show big foot. They left to your imagination.

I like both movies, but Willow Creek is far superior and horrifying movie.  I like the fact that they don’t reveals big foot and left to your imagination. I also like the Willow Creek’s surprising ending. Acting is much better in Willow Creek and it has bit of back story for the main characters. I recommend to see both, but if I have to choose one, I pick Willow Creek.

In the Nutshell

Willow Creek is far more enteratining movie, but Exist isn’t bad.  I give 3 out of 5 stars.
