'Afflicted' Trailer Looks to Breathe New Life into Found-Footage Horror

'Afflicted' Trailer Looks to Breathe New Life into Found-Footage Horror

Mar 05, 2014


There’ve been a lot of underwhelming found-footage horror flicks in the past few years, but this new trailer for festival darling Afflicted is looking to buck that trend.

Derek Lee and Clif Prowse’s feature was a hit at Fantastic Fest, the Toronto International Film Festival and Sitges – and now it’s ready for its VOD debut this coming April. To get you in the mood, CBS Films has released this new trailer for the feature, which incorporates not only your traditional found-footage camerawork, but what also appears to be the Go-Pro camera for some new takes on first-person-perspective frights.

Here’s the official synopsis for the film:

"This terrifying horror thriller follows two best friends who set out on the trip of a lifetime around the world. Their journey, documented every step of the way, soon takes a dark and unexpected turn after an encounter with a beautiful woman in Paris leaves one of them mysteriously afflicted. Winner: Best Picture (Horror), Best Screenplay (Horror), Best Director (Horror) at Fantastic Fest, and recipient of awards of recognition from the Toronto International Film Festival and the Sitges International Fantastic Film Festival. AFFLICTED is one of the most suspenseful and original action horror debuts in a generation."

Based on this trailer, it looks like it could be a hit. We’ll find out for sure when Afflicted infects your cable provider’s Movies On Demand system on April 2.
