A new “found footage” thriller called Upper or The Upper Footage (the name is not clear) is being released at select screenings, but is seeking the support of audiences to get the film in more cities (similar to what Paranormal Activity did for the first film). As with most found footage films, the details are very vague (to make it seem more real) and Quentin Tarantino is believed to be the one who purchased the footage to make into a film (slash obviously they mean he’s the actual director but don’t want to reveal that yet).
The premise is of Upper is that it is an edited version of 393 minutes of recovered footage documenting a young girl’s tragic overdose death and subsequent cover up. Here are the details that have been revealed about the story: “On the night of December 28th, 2009 a young girl by the name of Jackie was seen leaving a popular NYC sports bar with a group of affluent socialites. It was the last time she was seen alive. Due to the affluence of those involved the story did not hit the media until 2010 when an extortionist acquired the footage and began leaking it online causing a media feeding frenzy. A bidding war ensued whereas Quentin Tarantino allegedly purchased the footage.”
