Memory cards unearthed in a remote stretch of the Mojave Desert tell the story of four travelers who vanished during a sun-drenched camping trip. One night, everything changes when the foursome is sent on a mind-bending voyage of unrelenting terror into a world of darkness that no human was ever meant to see.
Cinedigm distributes in the US via a limited theatrical release, followed by a release on their horror streaming platform Screambox. (9/26/22)
Filmed in the Mojave Desert, California.
Director Robbie Banfitch was quoted saying: “My whole life I’ve dreamed of making a scary movie. Thanks to friends, family, and years of hard work, the daydreams were made tangible. We filmed in the dark and dust and along the sand-swept highways of the Mojave. We screamed and laughed and ran under dim desert moons with rattlesnakes, wild burros, bats and fire ants. That I will have the opportunity to share our work with filmgoers is a gift, and I hope everyone watches with the lights off.”
It’s said that director Robbie Banfitch had The Blair Witch Project and Terrence Malick’s The Tree of Life in mind while filming.
Described as a “throwback to the early days of the found footage genre.”
