We all die in the dark… That’s the bleak message at the end of the trailer for The Outwaters, a brutal new found-footage horror film from writer and director Robbie Banfitch.
The Outwaters “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 behaviour.
“Then one night everything changes, sending the foursome on a mind-bending trip through terror.”
In addition to writing and directing, Robbie Banfitch also stars in The Outwaters alongside Leslie Ann Banfitch, Scott Schamell, Angela Basolis, and Michelle May. the film features original music by Salem Belladonna.
The Outwaters is getting a limited theatrical release in the U.S. on February 9th. Check out the trailer below, which starts out eerie and descends into something truly nightmarish.
