In the wee hours of the morning of Sept 4th, 2015, Crystal Connor, took a break from her writing and watch a movie to help her wind down and get ready for bed. For the next two hours her neighbors were subjected to screaming, crying, and expletive outburst…

Plotline: A reward offered by a local newspaper brings documentary makers Matt and his girlfriend Georgia to the remote North Devon moor in a bid to capture the fabled Beast purported to be a wild cat, like a panther or a puma on film.
Who would like it: Monster hunter fans, people who love slasher and lost in the middle of the woods films.
Horror Level: 3
High Points: It starts off being about an American cryptozoologist who travels to Europe with her boyfriend in search of a big cat but quickly turns into something else as they realize there is a monster up there in the woods but just not the one they thought.
Complaints: The whole arrogant America aboard troupe rubs me the wrong way, it was a reoccurring theme throughout the movie, and the more it happened the more annoyed I became. I completely understand that when you’re tired, scared, and stressed its far to say you’re not thinking straight but even under those conditions but even still the choices they were making didn’t make any sense and just served to make things worse. The ending felted rushed and unfinished which made the ending unrealistic. In all honesty X Moor should have ended differently.
Overall: It has its ups and downs but this one just didn’t work for me
Stars: Almost 3
Where I watched it: Amazon Prime
Washington State native Crystal Connor has been terrorizing readers since before Jr. high School and loves anything to do with monsters, bad guys, rogue scientific experiments, jewelry, sky-high high heel shoes & unreasonably priced hang bags. She is also considering changing her professional title to ‘dramatization specialist’ because it’s so much more theatrical than being just a mere drama queen.
