THR is reporting that Deep Studios, the Utah-based production company, will release Devin McGinn’s supernatural thriller Skinwalker Ranch through its new domestic distribution arm both theatrically and on VOD on October 30.

According to local legend, Skinwalker Ranch, located in northeast Utah, is allegedly the site of unexplainable, paranormal and UFO-related activities. In the film, which uses a found-footage style, a research team investigates the supernatural phenomena surrounding the disappearance of a cattle rancher’s 10-year-old son.

McGinn stars in the film and also makes his directorial debut.

He also produced alongside Murphy Michaels and executive producer and Deep Studios founder Ken Bretschneider. The film was written by Adam Ohler and also stars Jon Gries, Kyle Davis, Erin Cahill, Matthew Rocheleau and Steve Berg.

Deep Studios will release the film day-and-date in theaters and VOD in more than 20 markets across the country including Los Angeles, Phoenix, Miami, Dallas and Houston, with a DVD to follow.

    i’m really happy that we’re getting several(? i think) horror movies on/around Halloween but this particular one doesn’t interest me. i really REALLY am over “found footage” anything.

    I have to agree with djblack1313 this whole “found footage” thing is getting out of hand, they’re not even beating a dead horse any more, now they’re just stomping on the remains

    Like it or not found footage is here to stay. This does sound interesting, hopefully we get a preview soon so we can get a little more out of it.

    I agree. Found footage films were more fun when it was just a few at a time. Too many of them have the same formula and now its every-other horror film is found footage. They just dont interest me as much as before. And alien found footage is just the worst experience for me.
