(Published in Issue 7 of my publication In Retrospect)

Rating:

Directed by Josh Trank, Chronicle is a found footage style science fiction film that sees three high school friends, Andrew Detmer (Dane DeHaan), Steve Montgomery (Michael B.

With the likes of Paranormal Activity, Apollo 18 and the mass of other films currently experimenting with the camera-footage/documentary style genre, Chronicle looks like it will be a fresh of breath air, with a less-horror more-action filled film that we may actually enjoy without being scared out of our skin.
