Based on a real incident that took place in Chicago in the late 1980s, upcoming horror film Broadcast Signal Intrusion is set to introduce us to the scariest set of videotapes since The Ring—and the new trailer will make you glad you got rid of your VHS player!
In the film, video archivist James discovers a surreal and disturbing clip while logging tapes of decades-old TV broadcasts. He believes this is the product of a mysterious broadcast signal hacking, but his discovery takes a sinister turn when he tracks down similar broadcast intrusions that send him on an obsessive mission. Now James must confront two very real possibilities: that the videos may be clues to a crime beyond all comprehension—and that whoever was behind them may be very aware that James is coming uncomfortably close to the truth.
Broadcast Signal Intrusion was directed by Jacob Gentry (The Signal) and written by Tim Woodall and Phil Drinkwater. The cast includes Harry Shum Jr. (Crazy Rich Asians), Kelley Mack (The Walking Dead), and Chris Sullivan (Stranger Things).
If you live in the U.S., you can catch the signal in theatres and on digital on October 22nd. In the meantime, catch a glimpse of the chilling footage by watching the trailer below!
