2008. That's when we first reviewed the Dowdle Brothers' found footage film The Poughkeepsie Tapes (review). Years have passed, and no one has since seen hide nor hair of the movie... until now, that is.
John Erick Dowdle directs the film from a story he wrote with his brother, Drew Dowdle. Stacy Chbosky, Ben Messmer, Samantha Robson, and Ivar Brogger star in the faux documentary, which is available Now on DirectTV VOD.
