The great thing about our beloved horror genre is how it keep trying to re-invent itself, coming up with new and fresh ideas, or clever spins of creations already popular with fans.
Found footage continues to be a strong genre, and while the duds are outweighing the genuine classics, the found footage horror genre is showing no signs of slowing down or becoming stagnant. Case in point, Cybernatural, a new found footage sort of horror produced by Timur Bekmambetov (Night Watch, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, Wanted).
The first, really awesome trailer has been released ahead of the films world premiere at Fantasia tomorrow, and I am sure you’ll agree that the trailer is intense, frantic and very scary.
Produced by Timur Bekmambetov and directed by Leo Gabriadze, Cybernatural stars Shelley Hennig, Moses Storm, Renee Olstead, Will Peltz, Jacob Wysocki, Courtney Halverson, Heather Sossaman
Timur Bekmambetov presents CYBERNATURAL — a new experience in horror — an acknowledgement that the terrors of modern life no longer take place in forests or graveyards, but on the screens we stare at for hours every day.
The horrors are many… Sites where teens can anonymously cyberbully their peers… Sites where angry lovers can post nude photos of their exes… Sites encouraging the victimized to kill themselves… Sites where those victimized post videos of their suicides for others to see. To copy… And of course… sites where you can reach out to those dead. Where you can conjure them…
CYBERNATURAL is the first of its kind. A first-person exploration of the terrors of our connected experience…
