Afflicted (2013)

Director(s): Derek Lee, Clif Prowse. Cast: Clif Prowse, Derek Lee, Baya Rehaz. 85 min. Rated R. Canada/USA. Horror/Thriller.

The "found footage" horror sub-genre has come a long way since The Blair Witch Project ... mostly going down. During a round-the-world trip, a college kid is afflicted by a disease (heavily inspired by a Stephen King novel). Although the nature of the disease is clear right off the bat, the movie goes on elaborating for half an hour to make it idiot-proof. And then characters speak their motivations for every single thought and action into the camera, proving even they're suspicious holding a camera under the worst circumstances is implausible. In a crowded market, this was a very tough So-so.
