Ladies and gentlemen, we may have found a winner to bestow the honor of most disturbing horror movie of the year on. This distinction comes down to dash cam. A film that scares the viewer with so-called found footage – and is so crazy that an audience member fell ill during the film’s premiere.
The central premise of the film, which director Rob Savage shot on an iPhone, is that a musician played by Annie Hardy is feeling burnt out in pandemic-era Los Angeles. Fleeing quarantine, she decamps to London to hook up with a bandmate, played by Amar Chadha-Patel. So far, so good. The film – which premiered in the UK at the London Film Festival in October – veers into “holy shit” territory pretty early on, however. Specifically, when Annie starts live-streaming her surroundings.
