What would you do if you saw the exact match of an Amber Alert driving next to you?, would you call the police… or follow? That’s what happens in the film Amber Alert.
Amber Alert tells the story of two lifelong friends who are auditioning for a reality TV show, find that they are driving right next to a car which was listed in an Amber Alert. They decide to follow the car, and what follows after that is for you to see.
The film is a found-footage type that documents their journey. It’s full of emotion, and heart pounding suspense. The two main characters are definitely believable in this film. The found-footage filming does work in this film, it adds more suspense. The film definitely pulls you in more and more. Though sometimes some of the characters can get under your skin. But that adds more to the suspense.
Like most found footage films, this film has some originality following an Amber Alert and chasing the car down. They’re not exactly being hunted by a killer or demon. Like Paranormal activity where the camera just sits in a few places and we watch the video, this film throws you into it.
This film has more tension than scares. Towards the end it gets scarier with someone popping out of nowhere. It builds a rollercoaster ride for you, by following the car and the characters making hard decisions if they should follow or not.
I recommend this film to anyone who likes found-footage horror films or people who like good tension building movies.
