The trailer for the found footage horror film “The Outwaters” has been released by SCREAMBOX. The film, directed by Robbie Banfitch, is a found-footage horror based on the events of four musicians and filmmakers’ journey into the Mojave Desert, as told through three memory cards discovered in the wild. The group’s initially simple trip to create a music video turns into an unusual experience. Watch the trailer below.
The film stars Robbie Banfitch, Angela Basolis, Michelle May, Scott Schamell, and Leslie Ann Banfitch. Banfitch also produces alongside Beau J. Genot while Robert Abramoff serves as executive producer. In an interview, Banfitch said “The Outwaters” getting into theaters “It’s been a longtime dream to make a ‘scary movie.” He added, “I’m grateful that people will have a chance to watch The Outwaters on the silver screen. Because we need that. All of us. Somehow, terror feels good in a place like this.”
Check out the poster below.
According to Bloody Disgusting, the synopsis is as follows: “The film plays out over three memory cards found in a sun-drenched section of the Mojave Desert. The footage within is that of a foursome, who set out to make a music video while camping, led by a charismatic LA filmmaker. Their trip starts out uneventful, though their peace is occasionally disrupted by unexplained sounds, vibrations, and unnatural animal behavior. Then one night everything changes, sending the foursome on a mind-bending trip through terror.”
The Outwaters will be released in theaters on February 9, 2023.
