I’m a big fan of cinema verite, or “found footage” horror. While it’s being done to death, it’s the one form of filmmaking that anyone can do with $0. Grab a camera, gets some friends, and prove you’re the real deal. Sure, 99% of them suck, but eventually the next Blair Witch or Paranormal Activity will find its way.
Thanks to BD regular Avery, we scored a trailer to Scott Bates UK found footage indie pic The Tapes that stars Nick Nevern and Jason Maza. Here’s the plot crunch and a piece of art:
