From the looks of the new trailer, it's not your typical found-footage thriller. The film uses a standard narrative with intermittent first-person POV footage, meaning maybe we won't be asking why the characters are filming the entire time as horrible things happen to them.
The film finds a newlywed woman moving into her abandoned childhood home. She starts experiencing strange, terrifying events and believes a malevolent force is out to get her and her family. The trailer really hinges on our memory of "The Blair Witch Project," as more than a few images are reminiscent of stuff we saw there (dark cellars, a crying woman in front of a camera who could use a Kleenex).
The film played at this year's SXSW and 2011's TIFF, but we'll all be able to check it out in theaters when it opens on May 18.
