New trailer for UK found footage horror The Tapes

14 September 2011 12:05 PM, PDT | QuietEarth.us | See recent QuietEarth news »

Anyone with a camera and decent desktop editing software can make a movie these days. And they are. Problem is, when they realize their footage looks like amateur porn they decide to make a "found footage" horror film. This is not a stab at The Tapes, the latest of the genre coming from the UK at all, just an observation as to why I think we're getting a lot of found footage films recently.

Synopsis:

In the winter of 2008, three teenage friends, Nathan (Oceng), Gemma (Sparkes) and her boyfriend Dan (Maza), visited Whitstable, Kent to shoot location footage for Gemma�s showreel and her Big Brother TV show audition video. While filming in one of the area�s many pubs, they briefly encountered a local farmer and were later informed by the barmaid that the man was a harmless �swinger� who regularly hosted sex parties at his nearby farm.

New poster and trailer for Brit horror ‘The Tapes’

Written by Scott Bates and co-directed by Bates and Lee Alliston, The Tapes is a brand new independent British horror film starring Jason Maza (Demons Never Die; Anuvahood; Fish Tank), Arnold Oceng (Demons Never Die; 4.3.2.1.; Adulthood; Grange Hill), Natasha Sparkes (Burlesque Fairytales) and Nick Nevern (Terry; Adulthood).

A gritty, urban teen horror that takes its “found footage” cue from the likes of The Blair Witch Project and Rec, The Tapes adds a rare and chilling sense of realism to the proceedings thanks to utterly convincing performances from its excellent young cast and fine location work that suggests the horror really could happen here.
