Okay, this movie, directed by Oren Peli, looks like it will be in my top 5 scariest movies list for sure! Their trailer is totally unique too. Part of it is showing the reactions of the audience members throughout the film- and let me tell you, they look freaked out! The thing is, with a $15,000 budget (filmed Blair Witch style), it’s not opening in all major cities. They need to have enough interest from different cities, so they’ve set a site where you can request it to be played in your area. Considering how much I love scary movies and how this kind of stuff freaks me out (see my article on Sleep Paralysis), it will be a must see for me! I want it to play here! So far, it is only in 20 US cities, but 10 more cities will be announced tomorrow.
Here’s the synopsis:
After a young, middle class couple, Katie (Katie Featherston) and boyfriend Micah (Micah Sloat), move into what seems like a typical suburban house in San Diego, they become increasingly freaked out by a presence that may or may not be demonic. The presences is certainly most active in the middle of the night with all of the noises they hear- especially when they sleep. Well, when they try to sleep, I mean. To figure out what the eff is going on, Micah sets up a night vision video camera while they sleep. The audience watches the found footage….Dun dun dah!!!
