Making Off is a French found-footage horror flick that aims to take the sub-genre into new and repulsive levels of extreme horror. Does it achieve that? Well yes, and no. The extreme aspects of it are certainly that. It’s disgusting and nasty with a decidedly vile feel. It’s rarely ever fun, and for the most part, it’s deadly serious.

“The level of gore is medium, the special effects range from adequate to disturbingly good, and the brutality and sadistic torture level is pretty high. But it’s all just pointless sickness.” The Worldwide Celluloid Massacre
