‘The Entity’ Releases Terrifying New Trailer, Resembles 'Paranormal Activity,' 'The Blair Witch Project' [Watch]
Although there has not been a release date set for "The Entity" yet in the U.S., the trailer has already frightened the pants off Internet viewers.
According to horror news site Dread Central, the film debuted this year at the Film4 FrightFest and has had quite a welcoming reception from fans of the genre.
The film is presented in a found footage style, which mirrors others of the day like "Paranormal Activity" and "The Blair Witch Project." But it also features extraordinary special effects that force the viewer to become unnerved to the events playing out on the screen.
The found footage style of the film's presentation also uses cyber technology, showing people interact via video over the web, which is supposedly how the curse in the film is transmitted from person to person.
The official synopsis for the film gives fans a view of the grim details.
"A group of students discover a terrifying 'reaction video' on the Internet. Their search to discover the whereabouts of the video reveals an obscure corner of cyberspace known as the Dark Web, where a curse brings death to all who witness the video," the synopsis reads.
The trailer itself is stuffed full with terrifying images of people that appear to be filming in real time and getting slaughtered on and off the camera. It makes good use of the old "shark you cannot see" scare as well.
It has also been described as 'The Ring' meets 'Paranormal Activity.'
The release date in the U.S. has not been announced, but it is set to make its debut in the U.K. on Oct. 12.
The film is the brainchild of Eduardo Schuldt and Sandro Ventura. Schuldt directed the film, which stars Rodrigo Falla, Daniela Mendoza and Carlos Casella.
