Studio71 has announced that the Australian horror/thriller Scare Campaign will be released on digital platforms (iTunes, Amazon, and Google Play) on October 24th.
Director Cameron Cairnes explains:
[Scare Campaign] really evolved from us watching YouTube clips – stuff where elaborate pranks get a bit out of hand, where people are really put under duress. There’s a funny one from Mexico that did the rounds a few years back. People enter a lift, the lift breaks down, and then suddenly this ghost girl appears behind them, screaming. People were genuinely freaking out at the sight of this girl! So our idea was ‘what if one of those people, those victims, turned on this girl and the people behind the prank?
“The crew of a reality TV prank show facing dwindling ratings decides to up the ante by setting up a terrifying prank in an abandoned asylum. Things go horribly wrong when they prank the wrong guy.”
Directed by Colin and Cameron Cairnes (100 Bloody Acres), Scare Campaign stars Meegan Warner (“Turn: Washington’s Spies”, The Veil), Ian Meadows (“The Pacific”), Olivia DeJonge (The Visit), and Josh Quong Tart (“Home And Away”).
