If you're reading this then you've watched, or have some interest in watching Witnesses - either way, thank you!
When watching, or reviewing, keep a few things in mind:
Yes, Witnesses is a THRILLER that bleeds into the (giallo) horror genre, shot in the found footage style.
Found footage is such a polarizing shooting style - you either embrace the sub-genre, or despise it. Taking that into consideration, we eliminated from Witnesses many of the elements people hate. First, we gave the characters a plausible reason for filming. And, sure, you're going to find some shaky camera in a scene and smash cut transitions, but very few, not throughout the movie. It's only included as a nod to the genre.
All that said, I went in realizing that you cannot please everyone. Pick any movie and you're inevitably going to get your haters. But those that have watched it without preconceived notions, or certain expectations, generally like it.
Of course you're entitled to your opinion. Your taste in a movie is completely subjective, but I am presenting this message for your consideration when thinking about what you watched, or what you will watch.
We did not go in expecting an Oscar win. This is a movie, not a film. It was our intention from the start to make an entertaining VOD movie and we think that was accomplished.
I hope you enjoy(ed) it!
If you have any questions, comments, praise, or criticism, please send them my way.
P.S. Yeah, of course I gave it 10 out of 10 Stars, because I'm biased.

Best friends, Steve and Luke, set out to create a short film for their Film Studies class' final project. Over their objections, Luke persuades Steve and their film's cast members, Natalie and Quint, to deviate from the planned shooting schedule and film their final scene in an abandoned warehouse. Inside they discover a cache of guns and drugs, and find a man savagely beaten and being held hostage by a merciless drug cartel. Before they can make their escape and get help, cartel enforcers return and heinously murder their hostage. Realizing they are not alone, the cartel sicarios hunt down to execute the film students that have witnessed their crime. Relentlessly determined to kill them, the college classmates must evade capture and survive against these hitmen, or become their next victims. Driven down into the massive subterranean labyrinth of the warehouse, the students come across a group of captive women held as human trafficked sex slaves, the cartel's secret drug processing ...
