USA, 2012 (MIFF 2012, Night Shift)
“The horror movie so terrifying it made audiences SICK.” - Daily Mail
A collection of top genre filmmakers go head-to-head in a compendium of found footage flicks - tightly wrapped in a contextualising film - that run the gauntlet of suspense, terror, shock and downright brutality.
A group of petty criminals is hired to retrieve a mysterious videotape from a rundown house. In the living room, a lifeless body holds court before a hub of old TV sets, surrounded by stacks upon stacks of VHS tapes. As they search for the right one, they are treated to a seemingly endless number of horrifying videos, each stranger than the last.
Directed by Adam Wingard (A Horrible Way to Die), David Bruckner (The Signal), Ti West (The Innkeepers, MIFF 11), Glenn McQuaid (I Sell the Dead), Joe Swanberg (Art History) and Radio Silence (YouTube filmmaking sensations).
