It is pointless trying to explain you what this movie's about.

I literally had to keep myself from falling asleep during this movie as it attempted to frighten me out of my wits.

Slow, predictable, bad edited, ugly...

Coupling the fact this has a plot, it keeps you on the edge of your seat and has direction - I feel for the genre and the independant nature of this film, it gives the audience real BANG for the BUCK.

In my opinion, the worst movie ever.

Through all of this comes a film that is adventurous, gripping and close to reality in several aspects of true bigfoot articles, stories and behavior.

The scene dragged and dragged some more.

For the first 3/4's of the movie, things get pretty boring.

It has no plot, only the story of people in the forest, involving the sasquatch.

If you want to see a low budget movie about people stranded in the wilderness who are attacked by hairy creatures, I strongly recommend you instead watch the vastly entertaining "Dog Soldiers".

There are countless issues with this film but the most annoying item is the really bad editing, which also features countless fade to black sequences, which get tiresome very quickly.

Even Henriksen comes off looking very bored and bland.

At the end of the movie it gets a bit exciting too.

Cinematography/special effects and the backdrops are stunning.

Quastel tries to capture the "Blair Witch" mode with these type of shots and they grow tiresome very quickly.

It gets annoying, and sometimes confusing.

Otherwise this movie isn't really worth watching unless you very interested in film-making, and want to see one way you can cut the mandatory boring introductory scenes into something watchable.

Every time he appears on screen he looks plain bored.

I for myself enjoyed it the most time.

As is, The Untold just creaks along, really predictable, bad performances, uninteresting dialog.

I gotta admit, I found it pretty exciting while it lasted.

The Good News: One of the things I really enjoy about this movie is its really suspenseful attacks.

MAY CONTAIN SPOILERSOK, i admit, this movie is kind of boring.

Sloppy editing and careless direction also adds to the confusion as half the time everything seemed out of sequence, while the other half of the film was constantly used up with these long, slow fade outs (which made no sense or served any purpose).

The director had some interesting ideas on how to keep the audience from being bored while he is trying to introduce the characters.

It was also very predictable, boring and slow.

(r#64)Unredeemable, merit-less, and above all dreary trash.

It's as dull as it sounds.

Then, some closing text with a rather boring conclusion.

Don't waste your time.

Important events either never or barely appear, and we're stuck with far too many pointless scenes.

The existence of a Bigfoot/Sasquatch is a really compelling issue, and really don't get why there haven't been more films out there about them.

Yes, the ending seems just a tad contrived.

It ranks in there with Deadly Species & Below Loch Ness, as good, meaty, if predictable horror fare.

I still think Troll and Troll 2 are the worst movies out there.

Top 10 Worst Movies of all time .

Playfully thinking it's the crew-member who likes her, she gives him the cold shoulder, then is suddenly dragged out of her tent and pulled along for a short distance until it finally lets go.

But noticing all that I thought to myself: Well, this would probably be really boring if it was all going chronologically.

As is, it really feels like a waste of your time because as soon as the movie is over, your memories will have already started to fade.

Skipping the boring bits.

Probably the most intriguing of smaller films I have seen in sometime.

This is über-trash, I'm talking 'Manos'-level crap, meaningless, unwatchable, not-even-so-bad-it's-good, cinematic bile of the highest order.

It's not that this movie is bad because of the script or the acting or the special effects, it's mostly that it is dull.

The Unbearable Would be a Better Title .

Well,the film is entertaining and if you like Lance "Bishop" Henrickson,action,horror,thrills,and mysterious hidden animals and/or Cryptozoology like Me then go to your nearest video store and rent it!

I think that this is one of my top ten worst movies I have ever seen!

A big waste of time is all you'll get out of this bag.

Good Movie, Gripping, Refreshing, decent story - 2 thumbs up!.

This was the worst creature horror i have ever seen, the story is banal and far from thrilling, the acting apart from henriksen (who looks really p***ed off to be in this movie) is abysmal,the worst thing about this movie is the directing:The movie fades to black at almost every single opportunity was really anoying after a while.
