Hot on the heels of such genre classics like Paranormal Activity and the Blair Witch Project comes the latest found footage chiller that is guaranteed to give you sleepless nights. Say hello to Evil Things, written and directed by Dominic Perez I must say the trailer shows an awful lot of promise without giving too much away. There are scenes of genuine terror here and I cannot wait to get a glimpse of this.
The film is due for release here in the UK on DVD August 10th so get on to Lovefilm or Amazon to reserve your copy to rent or buy (providing they have it listed so soon!). Anyway, here is the synopsis:
It’s Miriam’s 21st Birthday. As a birthday gift, Miriam’s aunt Gail has decided to lend Miriam her beautiful country house for an entire weekend. Aunt Gail’s country house is amazing. It’s a four bedroom house surrounded by breathtaking mountains and miles and miles of woods. Miriam invites her young college friends Cassy, Mark, Tanya and Leo to join her at the country house for what looks to be the most amazing weekend ever. Of course they all jump at the chance to spend a free weekend in the country, in the middle of nowhere. Miriam’s friends are totally in the mood for a big time party weekend. They’re also anxious to escape the dark and gloomy concrete jungle known as Manhattan. Miriam, Cassy and Tanya bring the food. Mark brings the beer and Leo, the aspiring filmmaker, brings his new video camera. Leo hopes to produce a short movie by documenting every amazing moment of this weekend getaway…
