Dashcam (2021)

Rob Savage, director, impressed me with Host and I wanted to give this a shot. Honestly, I cannot BELIEVE Blumhouse produced this piece of garbage.
In my 32 years of life I've seen plenty of movie characters that I didn't like, but none of them were as unlikeable as Annie Hardy. That is also her name in real life, and apparently she is a toned down version of the Annie Hardy we get in Dashcam. Ten minutes spent watching her instagram highlight stories confirmed this.
Annie Hardy is an annoying, problematic, rude, politically charged young adult. She's a terrible friend, and even worse she's a "vlogging car rapper"? The type of person that screams out of her window at people and wakes a friend up by a spit slap to the face. 
Within the first 5 minutes of meeting her, you're rooting for her to die. The blurry, shaky found footage cliche of it all might be my favorite part of this movie.
I couldn't bring myself to enjoy any aspect of this movie or even try to follow the plot due to my level of annoyance for the main character. Could it have been good with a different actor? Maybe. I'll never know because I'm never watching it again. I can't tell you what happened in this movie, only that you don't need to waste your time on it.
This is not found footage. This is found garbage. YEP I SAID IT.
Annie Hardy the character: 0/10
Annie Hardy the person: 0/10
Her friend: 2/10
Overall rating: 1/10

Where can you watch?
It doesn't matter. Don't. Go watch Host instead.
