This is the first trailer for a new horror thriller called Afflicted. It's another found footage genre film. Aspects of it remind me of the movie Chronicle, as one of the characters ends up getting these crazy superpowers, but there's a horror twist to the story that seems to set it apart.
The film was written and directed by Derek Lee and Clif Prowse, who also co-stars in the film. It won Best Horror Feature, Best Screenplay, and Best Director at Fantastic Fest, which seems pretty impressive. It looks like it will be a fun movie to watch. Here's the synopsis:
This terrifying horror thriller follows two best friends who set out on the trip of a lifetime around the world. Their journey, documented every step of the way, soon takes a dark and unexpected turn after an encounter with a beautiful woman in Paris leaves one of them mysteriously afflicted.
CBS Films will release the film online and in theaters April 4th, and I'm sure I'll check it out.
