Silent but Brilliant Found Footage Short Film 8-25-78

October 28, 2013

GeekTyrant happened across a locally produced Utah film, 8/25/78 made for the Demon Chaser Film Challenge 2012, written and directed by Brandon Young and starring Antonio Lexerot, Ashley Campbell, and Michael Solarez.

Here's what they had to say about the film; Here's a Halloween short to get you in the spirit of the holiday. "8-25-78" was shot by Brandon Young and lay dormant for close to a year, getting minimal hits on Youtube. I can't tell you why because the movie drew me in from the very beginning. The found footage in 1978 is a fantastic touch for the silent film, and the ending will blow your mind!

The film chronicles a gruesome and rather horrifying murder which just so happened to be videotaped. The film is a period piece, taking place in 1978 and features absolutely no sound of anykind except for film running within the camera...and it's highly effective.
