Some good news for fans of the 'found footage' sub-genre. We have a new one on the way, and after the success and critical acclaim of THE TUNNEL, REC and PARANORMAL ACTIVITY, these films couldn't be hotter. I, for one, adore the sub-genre when done right. Its the domain of the independent filmmaker, and forces them to use that most invaluable tool...creativity. This is the sub-genre in which careers are often forged, so lets hope that relative newcomer, Cory Grant, can hit this one out of the park. Here's the lowdown from the man himself.
“The Lost Coast Tapes” is sure to be the next most talked about film and will bring together fans of horror and suspense. Produced by New Breed Entertainment in association with Matriarch Multimedia Group, this exciting project is already gaining a noticeable buzz online.
Set on location in Humboldt County in Northern California, “The Lost Coast Tapes” documents the found footage of a skeptical journalist who aims to prove there is no such thing as Bigfoot after someone reports they have the body of a dead Sasquatch. The film will take the audience through a thrilling ride of events in the deep, dark forests and countryside of the Lost Coast, and will be sure to leave viewers on the edge of their seat.
Film is currently in production with an anticipated release date of 2012.
Follow all of the activity during the creation of the film online through various social media profiles, including tweets and posts from the actors and crew while on set.
Plot : A cynical investigative journalist and his documentary team travel to a remote cabin to debunk a Cryptozoologist's claim of finding a dead Bigfoot, but their film quickly becomes a record of their life and battle against an unseen horror.
Anything remotely to do with Bigfoot gets my damn vote right off the bat. And a documentary style film dealing with the subject is somewhat mouthwatering. The setting sounds perfect, and with a concept this cool, its looking very promising. More news as it comes, kids.
