Thrills on a Budget
Verified purchase
I've read several reviews here and on Letterboxd that rate this film as a 1 star film, trash it as a poorly made movie, and claim that it's impossible to get through. Those writing these reviews are clearly not fans of low budget fare or think low budget film finances all look like similar to the budgets of Blumhouse. This is not a perfect film; however, when gauged against films with similar budgetary constraints, it is clearly a pretty strong entry.

The film, first and foremost, is made well from a technical standpoint. It's mostly well shot, well edited, and well constructed. Moreover, on a shoestring budget, it's also a good looking film. I've noted in other reviews that one of the biggest issues I see in low to no budget film is in how the film physically looks. In the case of even some of the low budget genre greats out there, this can be a struggle. Yet, in this one, it's not an issue. The look of the film isn't necessarily always top notch, but it's never distracting. In fact, it's usually pretty close to looking genuinely great, with only brief moments where poor lighting or similar types of issues cause the film's look to suffer. Again, though, it's never distracting, which is more than can be said about most films in this cost range.

The story is compelling and the heroes are easy to root for. They are human, imperfect and real. They are the focus of this film. Focusing the story on real people allows the film to waste less of its small budget on effects, but the effects that are created in this one are pretty effective, including creature design. Limiting the need for too much on screen violence and other special effects helps stretch a budget, as well. Sometimes these decisions are strictly about money and others are about aesthetics. The trick is making the decision looks as if it's always an aesthetic one, rather than one a filmmaker is forced into. This film does a good job with that.

The greatest criticism here is that despite solid editing work overall, the editor and other filmmakers neglected to utilize one primary function of an editor effectively: chopping out some of the excess fat. At nearly 2 hours long, the film is about 20-30 minutes longer than it needs to be. Chopping some scenes down and a few other out altogether would have strengthened the overall product a good bit. However, even at the current length, the film still stand out as a strong example of low budget genre work.

The long and the short of it is that this is a solid low budget film. Fans of big budget blockbusters without an open mind need not apply, but those of us who like to see filmmakers who do it for the love and not the money will find something worthwhile in this one.

Scary and rather intriguing
Verified purchase
This is an intriguing and often genuinely frightening film about a cult and a killer that lives in a remote area. A group of campers end up in a game of cat-and-mouse trying to get away from a killer. Add into the mix a pizza delivery girl who also becomes a target. It turns out that there is a much more elaborate story here than just a killer on the loose. The movie has some good sense of drama and mystery, and there is a terrific sense of atmosphere. The movie wisely sets up the characters, giving them a real sense of who these people are. The tension is well set. It's very clever, with a good script and a clockwork plot. Check it out!

Fantastic Low-Budget Film
Verified purchase
I've watched horror films for as long as I can remember, starting with The Sitter at around ten years old, but this falls into a genre of horror I didn't really learn to appreciate until recently: the B-movie; the low-budget movies made by real people with little money but a creative urge they need to feed. As a fellow creative, I applaud Callaway and all of the individuals that helped in the creation of this film for making something obviously filled with love and commitment.

Obviously like any movie in this genre, there are places I can see that need work or could have used a little extra editing, but all-in-all Let's Not Meet excels in creating a wonderful movie in the genre it is a part of. I appreciated the solid writing and thought there was a lot to applaud in this story and the way it was brought to life. I specifically think Breanna Engle (who played Aya) did a spectacular job performing in her role. She did a great job of playing a misunderstood girl with a troubled background and a lot of tension with many of the other characters. It was clear through her movements and the cadence of her words that she really took on her character. I'm interested to see where she'll go from here.

If you like getting to watch some of the first performances of up and coming stars, some of the people in this film are worth keeping an eye on. They're going somewhere.

Really good movie.
Verified purchase
First, let me say that I have zero idea why so many people gave this movie a 1. It did NOT DESERVE IT. Because it was not a professional movie? I've seem many horror movies made by major movie producers that don't even come close to this movie. Let me guess, the women turned out to be braver than the men at the end. The movie was well developed: a group of mostly whinny women who evolved, because the circumstances forced them to (as happens in real life). There were no "famous" actors, which made the characters more believable. The ultimate bad guy looked creepy as heck, certainly more the most and the face was very well executed. I watched it as a prime video but I would have paid to watch it, which in my case is unheard of. Rarely go to a movie theater.

Not ready for Prime time
Verified purchase
This is a good-faith effort to put out a horror film. The problem with "Let's Not Meet" is that the near two-hour length is an hour and fifteen minutes too long. Director Ryan Callaway, who also took a writing credit for the script, just didn't have enough content to sustain the film for so long. A decent premise was drowned out by the endless atmospheric sequences that became boring and tedious rather than frightening. Whatever other reviewers have called bad acting I lay on Calloway. It was bad directing in my opinion. This ensemble group of actors didn't have a knowledgeable enough leader to get them out of the thin script. Breanna Emgle, who played pizza girl, however, is going to be a star someday if given the chance. Calloway has good instincts and had a few flashes of brilliance, but still.has a way to go in technical competency. Night scenes were like, really, really dark, obscuring whatever little action was taking place. There were a slew of continuity issues as well. Yeah, I know this is a no-budget indie. A filmmaker has to learn the art and you can't fault Galloway for his effort in completing "Let's Not Meet." Make no mistake, the effort was massive. However, it misses by a mile as entertainment, even for a horror genre freak like me.

HILARIOUSLY BAD!!!!!
Verified purchase
I used to hate Amazon Video movies like this but they're growing on me like a fungus or flesh eating virus. You know the ones I'm talking about right? The ones made with a single stationary camera so there's no tracking shots, no overhead shot, no transitions and constant cutting back and forth during dialog between horrible non-actors reciting their stilted lines in a practically monotone voice for a script with some ridiculous plot! It's awesome!!! This movie has it all and is a perfect MST3000 movie candidate.

RELIES TOO HEAVILY ON MUSIC FOR SCARES
Verified purchase
Overall it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. The cinematography was good, the pacing was good, the acting was hit and miss. Some did a good job and others should just quit acting. A great example for that would be "The Hunter" He showed no emotion whenever he had to yell or be angry. He was not convincing. But the worst part about this movie was the sound!! With ADR you shouldn't be able to tell what was recorded on set and what was recorded in the studio. GET A BETTER MICROPHONE!! Making something EXTREMELY loud doesn't make the scene scarier, it makes it unbearable to watch. The music should create suspense, and build until that pivotal moment when the music finally delivers the hit. The side effects were HORRIBLE! And there's NO excuse for that because there's literally dozens of websites that offer free SFX clips that are copyright free. Sound can make or break a movie, this one shattered.

Cheap B Movie.

This film would be a good candidate for Mystery Science Theatre 3000. If you make it through, be sure to watch until after the credits. There is an extra scene you should view.
