"Prepare to be shocked." Time to get your first look at the incredible Midnight Madness film I flipped over at the Toronto Film Festival earlier this week called Afflicted. As much as I would love to say this footage is being purported as real, having seen the film I know these scenes well and they're awesome in the context of the found footage horror feature film reminiscent of Chronicle. This viral video shows two guys in France who met the two stars at a bar and received clips that show some shocking stuff. It's a cool early tease and a fun way to build some buzz for this and spread the word. Check it out below, and watch all the entire thing.
Here's the French viral video found online for Derek Lee & Clif Prowse's Afflicted, sent in by a reader:
Description from TIFF.net: This ingenious feature debut follows two friends (played by co-directors Derek Lee and Clif Prowse) who set out to travel the world. But the trip soon takes a dark and bloody turn when one of the men shows signs of a mysterious affliction that gradually takes over his entire body. Afflicted, written and directed by Derek Lee and Clif Prowse, first premiered at the Toronto Film Festival in the Midnight Madness category. CBS Films will be releasing Afflicted in early 2014 but an exact release date hasn't been set yet. The film will also play at Fantastic Fest in Austin, TX later this month. Read my review.
