See the Trailer for Freaky Danish Found Footage Film 'Encounters'
The woods have secrets. This looks freaky. Yes, the found footage trend is slowing down, but that doesn't mean there aren't still intriguing found footage films being made. This one is a horror called Encounters, supposedly Denmark's first found footage film. It was released in Denmark back in late 2014, but is just now hitting digital release and possibly coming to US theaters later in 2016. Similar to Blair Witch, the concept is that a group of people go into the woods and don't come back, but their footage is found. There's some weird stuff with a mask in this trailer, and the voiceover is odd, but it's all to setup the story. The final 30 seconds of this trailer is all the really good footage of crazy weird shit, and some solid FX work. Take a look.
November 18th, 2011 - a small Danish film crew disappeared in the woods of northern Sweden without a trace. One year later, their footage was leaked by a hacker group now known as Pandoras. This is the crew's unsettling and disturbing footage. Encounters is both written and directed by Danish filmmaker Anders Johannes Bukh, of work on the TV series "Modeljagten". Bukh is also producer, editor, composer and sound designer on Encounters. This film actually opened in Denmark in late 2014, and hasn't emerged much outside of Europe until now.
