That's right terrible movie fans - TWO found footage movies named 'Evidence' were made pretty damned close together and both sucked. THIS one had Radha Mitchell in it, a strong character actress that I usually like very much in everything she does. Unfortunately, in this movie, she does nothing but hold her boobs together to make sure she has cleavage showing. I'm not kidding. Look at the movie poster. That's pretty much her pose through much of this movie.
The 'found footage' aspect revolves around the ridiculous story of a massacre at some decrepit auto body shop in the middle of the desert in Nevada. At the beginning of the movies there's a really cool shot that has the whole scene frozen in 3D (no it's not really but it looked cool) as cops, SWAT, whatever, bagged burned up body parts and other detritus.

I am SO sorry about that. The young man offers to show his skills to the rest and does a move I recognized instantly. Now I don't watch talent shows. I missed the rise of Pentatonix as a terrific a capella group, and a certain young man (who turned out to be almost 40) who won a contest for this performance, which I'm including because it is the only entertaining thing about this review and I'm so, so sorry about that:
See the neck drop? That's what the kid did in the movie. Now this fellow, Kenichi Ebina does teach classes so I'm not accusing the kid of copying anybody - it was one of the few interesting parts of the movie (even if it lasted only three seconds).
Okay, everybody's at the abandoned whatever and there's a psycho in a welder's helmet, apron, and the looooongest acetylene torch hose I've seen in my life. This psycho took that torch EVERYWHERE. Most of the rest of the movie is watching this very bad hand held horror movie unfold (with constant interruptions of the bad film plus the EDD barking orders at the 'expert').
Suddenly they find that some of the footage that only they are supposed to have has been leaked onto YouTube. Uh huh. Now their game changes - it's a race against time before.... <YAWWWN> the rest of the footage appears to the public when they don't know who did the crime...
If I told you who that was, you'd shrug and say, "So?" And I wouldn't blame you. And I very much doubt YouTube would allow a snuff film on their site. Animal abuse, sure. Underage girls being abused, maybe. Shokushu Goukan (looking this up is not advised) possibly, at least for a short period of time. But snuff films? Especially for a crime currently being investigated by police? Pfffft.
