Found footage isn’t going away anytime soon, especially in the indie film scene, seeing as the genre is wildly popular and the films themselves are cheap to make. The Burningmoore Deaths is inspired by true events, which seems to be the case with a good amount of found footage films, but the true story behind this film is kinda creepy.
On February 14th, MVD Entertainment will release the feature film debut of Geoff Tate, former lead vocalist of the mega-platinum metal band Queensrÿche. Entitled The Burningmoore Deaths, the horror film – written and directed by Jonathan Williams – is inspired by true events surrounding unsolved murders captured on security cameras during a production shoot of a Home Improvement TV show pilot.
Tate takes on the role of James Parrish, a man who allegedly killed his own wife and three children before disappearing without a trace. With the home now vacated and boarded up, a home improvement company gets permission to film the renovation process for a test pilot for a TV network, not knowing that Parrish had returned to take up residence once again in the derelict building. Bloody chaos ensues – and it’s all captured on camera!
