The Dyatlov Pass Incident review

A film crew heads into the mountains to solve a mystery

How much can you enjoy Renny Harlin's ( Cliffhanger , Die Hard 2 ) lively found-footage horror depends how forgiving you’re feeling.

As an amateur documentary crew head into the Ural Mountains to solve a (real) 54-year-old mystery, we encounter bad dialogue, metronomic plot beats and unappealing characters.

Yet somewhere amid the mess – including aliens, abominable snowmen and Soviet conspiracies – lurks a midnight movie with a dizzyingly high concept.

Sometimes bad, never boring and, at the last, completely bonkers, it’s proof at least that you can freeze cheese.
