I'll criticize indie films for bad acting if it harms the movie but in Found I thought the acting was sufficient, perhaps a few awkward moments but nothing more.

That being said I think people are too lenient on indie films as I see far too many that are unoriginal, unskilled and ironically cashing in on depravity. Found isn't guilty of this though, it's a superb effort.

I wish I saw Pieces of Talent while it was free over Xmas, I started watching it but was too tired .

Are we talking about micro budget extreme films such as this or low budget horror in general?

Not like a 5.5 or 6 is oceans below a 7 or anything

The fact that they are indie grants them a pass for me on the acting. So it doesn't effect my judgement, as it's kind of expected.
I mentioned in my post that I don't think it's fair to criticize the film for those things because of how well the rest of the film is made but it did provide an uneasy viewing experience and my overall impression of the movie suffers because of that.

Maybe I'll learn to not be bothered by the performances if I start watching more underground shit but as of now they do irritate me.

Or maybe it's just overrated boo-scare fodder for the masses.

Have to say I LOVED FOUND. Never had any issues with the acting in it but then that is me. I really dug the characters and just cannot fault any of it, even my adopted Dad who complains about stuff like that dug it.

But anyway exciting stuff with the new release, especially with the HEADLESS short amongst the special features…unless you buy the Aussie version

Got the dvd a few days ago and I have to say this is a sick film. No monsters or demons here, just a twisted serial killer film that's done so well. It pretty much rips at every social taboo there is, race, sexuality and family issues, in a harsh and balls to the wall manner. I thought the acting was good enough, as I was worried due to the film's budget. It works effectively because of the two brothers. They really do come across as real brothers as they both deliver strong performances. Yes, at times the dialogue is a bit shaky, but never enough to ruin the watching experience. The gore was gruesome, the score was done right and the ending is disturbing. This movie is a big "FUCK YOU" to all of the mainstream horror movies, horror fans should see it. It does leave a mark!
There's a door to dreams
And it always lets you in
But with a silent scream
All the nightmares must begin

Still you chase what you can't see
Like death and pain and sin
And the Shadow of The Wind

Great stuff. Loved the dark brooding atmosphere slow burning yet chilling pace. The moments of bad acting were not really a big issue because they were from secondary characters. The two leads were really good. Once again indie shows the mainstream how to make real disturbing and horrific film.

This was great. It's totally disturbing but at the same time it didn't feel unnecessarily exploitative. I found it to be a nice balance between the visceral and cerebral. I'm a big fan of a great set-up and payoff; the ending of this was perfection. This must be seen.
