Another one of the fine films coming to us from Bloody Disgusting Selects is making its way to theatres, and having seen it already, we can tell you that it’s pretty damned Atrocious (review here).

The directorial debut of Spanish helmer Fernando Barreda Luna, ATROCIOUS is produced by Octavi Martínez, David Sanz, and Jessica Villegas Lattuada. ATROCIOUS is a Nabu Films and Silencio Rodamos Producciones production.

ATROCIOUS premiered internationally at the 43rd Sitges International Film Festival and then at Slamdance this past January 2011, garnering a tide of online buzz and quick comparisons to 2008’s PARANORMAL ACTIVITY.

ATROCIOUS is a gruesome, mind-bending thriller shot in a style reminiscent of THE BLAIR WITCH PROJECT. The horror film excerpts found footage from a film reel recovered by Spanish police, documenting a family of five discovering the truth behind a dangerous urban legend. The 37 hours of found footage follow Cristian and July Quintanilla passing time at their summer home by investigating a terrifying and mysterious urban legend. As their investigation intensifies, strange occurrences in and around the house escalate rapidly, culminating finally in unspeakable atrocities.

Atrocious opens theatrically on August 17th, 2011. Show times are 10 p.m. on Wednesdays and midnight on Fridays at AMC theatres.
