Is It Any Good?
This is an interesting premise that gets lost in flawed execution and clunky story movement. Hex is a horror movie centered on skydiving and skydiving culture (the movie tagline is "Skydiving gets scarier"), and some of that comes across as believable. The initial moments of paranormal horror are engaging, but after that, it takes a (pun intended) nosedive.
There's a gratuitous sex scene leading to a traumatic event that seems over and done with in a matter of minutes. The lack of a budget really starts to take a toll as the methods of dying become more and more elaborate. The big reveal isn't terribly shocking, but it's also not entirely clear how this evil emerged from a skydiving maneuver. Despite these faults, it's somewhat interesting to see what the skydiving culture is like, and its similarities to ski culture, surf culture, etc.
