“ ‘Atrocious’ is a gruesome, mind-bending thriller shot in a style reminiscent of ‘The Blair Witch Project’. The horror film exceprts found footage from a film reel recovered by Spanish police, documenting a family of five discovering the truth behind a dangerous urban legend. The 37 hours of found footage follow Cristian and July Quintanilla passing time at their summer home by investigating a terrifying and mysterious urban legend. As their investigation intensifies, strange occurrences in and around the house escalate rapidly, culminating finally in unspeakable atrocities.”
