Shrouded in mystery and bearing all the signs of a sure fire chill-fest, first-time writer/director Dominic Perez brings us Evil Things – a found footage shocker that hopes to join the ranks of the now legendary Blair Witch Project and the multiplex-filling Paranormal Activity when it hits DVD in the UK on October 10th courtesy of Scanbox Entertainment.
Judging from the press release below, this could be an intriguing slasher angle on the found footage sub-genre in the vein of the underrated but awesome My Little Eye.
From the Press Release
THEY WERE NEVER SEEN AGAIN… UNTIL NOW! Described as “really creepy stuff” (Stephen Susco, screenwriter of The Grudge 1 and 2), “very tense… engaging” (Terror Firmer) and full of “sheer ‘s**t your pants’ scares” (Arrow In The Head), the critically acclaimed horror-thriller Evil Things comes to DVD on 10th October 2011, giving genre fans plenty of time to line it up for a suitably scary seasonal Halloween viewing.
To celebrate her forthcoming 21st birthday, Miriam invites her college friends Leo, Cassy, Mark and Tanya on a road trip out of Manhattan to visit her Aunt Gail’s remote country house. Jumping at the chance to spend a free weekend together in the snowy wilds surrounded by beautiful mountain views and endless woodlands, the friends pile into Miriam’s car, with aspiring filmmaker Leo bringing along his new video camera to document the journey and the celebrations.
But their excitement about the leisurely getaway soon turns to anxiety and panic following an encounter with a mysterious van driver along the way; and 48 hours later Miriam, Cassy, Leo, Mark and Tanya have vanished, leaving officers investigating their disappearance without a single clue. That is, until a copy of what Leo captured on video is delivered to the FBI by an unknown source.
Evil Things (cert. 15) will be released on DVD (£9.99) by Scanbox Entertainment on 10th October 2011. Special Features include: video appeals from friends and family; videotape evidence: Exhibit No. 2; trailer.
