Most people think that this movie is some kind of documentary about “The Dyatlov Pass Incident“. I’ve watched it last night and therefore I can confirm that it’s an horror movie inspired by the incident that took place in 1959 and not an actual documentary. The movie is about 5 students that go to the location of the infamous incident. To make a documentary but, as you can guess, things go horribly wrong.
From the day that “The Blair Witch Project” was released, I’ve been loving found-footage horror. “Devil’s Pass” is quite a gem in this genre. The beautiful snowy landscapes, the sudden plot twists, the shooting, the building ambience, and an unexpected ending. All is there for a perfect Saturday horror night.
It also got me interested in the real incident, and made me wonder what really happend there 58 years ago… I guess we’ll never know.
