Found-footage fans are getting a new movie in July called Infrared. This is coming from the production company Terror Films, the same people behind Hell House LLC.
Greg Sestero of The Room fame makes an appearance in this supernatural haunter. A team of paranormal investigators are caught inside an abandoned school with a very horrific past.
Directors Robert Livings & Randy Nundall Jr. told Dread Central their film is more than a genre entry.
“Infrared is first and foremost a horror film. But at its heart, is a movie about siblings reconnecting in a time of need. Often in horror films, we find ourselves rooting for the characters we don’t like to die.
So it was important for us to develop characters that we wanted to survive, creating a larger emotional investment for those watching. With this intention in mind, we set out to wholly develop their backstories and create a believable connection. From there we tackled the darker themes and scares within the film. We workshopped ideas with our actors, and giving them the freedom of collaboration within our improvisational process.
This film is injected with humor, tension and scares. We really hope that nobody finds an owner’s manual in their basement.”
Despite the oversaturation of found-footage films, they aren’t down for the count. This year’s Dashcam has become a cult classic nominee and the Shudder documentary The Found Footage Phenomena assures us there’s more to come.
Infrared will hit digital platforms on July 22.
