>ABC’S THE RIVER

1 THE GIMMICK

This horror saga about a reality TV crew hunting in the Amazon for a missing explorer is shot in the documentary style of Paranormal Activity. Clever. It’s like Survivor in hell.

2 THE SCARES

They’re not as over-the-top as American Horror Story but more chilling because they’re applied glancingly. You’re forced to watch very, very closely. So keep an eye out for the monkey.

3 THE CAST

Bruce Greenwood, whom we see as the explorer in “found” footage, is most intriguing because he’s most remote. All anyone else basically needs to do is stare, scream and RUN!!! Which they do, perfectly. []
