Turn on ‘The Dark Tapes’ Trailer and Poster (Exclusive)

The multi-award winning anthology film The Dark Tapes will have a limited engagement in Los Angeles on March 17th and will be available on VOD platforms April 18th through Epic Pictures Releasing, Bloody Disgusting learned.

The Dark Tapes is a horrifying blend of terror and mayhem which takes the viewer on a twisted journey into the world of paranormal activity, demonic possession, and the supernatural.

The cast includes a who’s-who of genre talent:  Cortney Palm (Sushi Girl, Zombeavers, Death House), Brittany Underwood (Nickelodeon’s Hollywood Heights), and Emilia Ares Zorayn (Amazon’s Bosch, V/H/S: Viral).  To date, the film has garnered 57 awards and nominations on the festival circuit, placing it #2 all-time for “found-footage” movies (source:, right after the 1999 original worldwide smash The Blair Witch Project. The Dark Tapes was directed by Michael McQuown and Emmy Award winning make-up effects artist, Vincent J. Guastini (Requiem for a Dream, The Last of the Mohicans).

A spin-off film, The Darker Paths, involving some of the same characters and themes, is set to go into production this Spring.

Here’s an exclusive look at both the trailer and poster art.

    • Austin Putnam

      So you’re judging by just the poster? Get outta here.

  • Poopsmith McUnty

    meh doesn’t look good. hate found footage and the craaaaaazy text effects in the trailer look lame and cheap. like iMovie effects.

  • MaryMaria

    Oh dang! I’ve never heard of this one before, and I love a good found footage film. I’ll definitely have to check this out, thanks! And yeah, the poster’s not good, but hopefully that doesn’t reflect upon the film.

    I think found footage gets way too criticized because of having some bad movies. Every single subgenre of horror has horrible movies and every single one has brilliant movies. case and point, The Gallows was terrible for found footage, but the Poughkeepsie Tapes is legitimately one of the most unnerving and creepy movies ever made. I think simply, because found footage is the most recent horror craze, you are always gonna get the ‘tough guy horror fan’ guys moaning about how terrible these movies are. You know who I’m talking about, the one dude who goes to a horror movie, and purposely doesn’t pay attention so HE doesn’t get scared, and waits for everyone else’s scared reaction and then makes it a point to laugh as loud as he can. You know, so everyone knows just how tough he is, and that nothing scares him; then he goes on imdb and gives the movie a 1 (which by the way immediately discredits your argument, because no movies are ever truly a 1 or a 10) and his review makes literally no sense and it’s obvious he missed major plot points. Rant over. The fact is, this preview looks like it has genuinely scary looking practical effects, and a creepy tone, so I’m sure the movie actually will be pretty scary, but will only get like a 5.2 on imdb and 55% on rotten tomatoes because of the above mentioned tough guys

  • Alanmac

    Starts off looking REALLY bad but then some of the monster shots scattered throughout grabbed my attention. May have to give it a go.
