You've seen it all before... but done better. 5/10
Pretty Good if not exactly original 7/10
How did this get so many good reviews?! 3/10
Polaroid is a decently executed, yet cliche teen horror that shows flashes of genuine foreboding creepiness, and some plot predictability along the way. 7/10
With an overall rating of 5.1/10, this in the main is not well liked. But this is not a Cinema release it is a straight to stream/dvd and as such though nothing new to the horror genre it is watchable.
An ok cast and the odd sinister scene leads to this final destination style death dealing film to be just about worth an afternoon turn your brain off watch.
The teen centered story can get slightly annoying and cliche at times but it just comes with the territory. By the time the finale arrives, everything is that much more effectively frightening as things are ramped up.
Overall, yes its predictable, but if you give it a chance as an avid horror fan, I'm sure you'll be able to appreciate it for what it is. It accomplishes what it sets out to do with it's creepy story.
Believe me there are many many worse out there, which were even give a Cinema release.
MGN Rating 6/10
