Unnamed Footage Festival 2022

The Unnamed Footage Festival, which focuses on found footage and POV horror films, has been one of our favorites since attending their groundbreaking 24-hour livestreamed event last year. 

Even after having an in-person event only last month, they kept the online format for a second round airing May 7, in a 12-hour livestream. And to add even more to their ingenuity, they will feature eight floppy disk found footage feature films and various floppy shorts, which “will never be seen by human eyes again.”

The livestream will start at 11 a.m. PT and 2 p.m. EST, and tickets can be purchased on their website for $30Unnamed Footage Festival virtual 2022

While most other festivals scrambled to adapt to life post-COVID with a range of success, the Unnamed Footage Festival cracked the code with the event that allowed people to connect virtually at the same time as everyone else through social media in a fun spectacle of a fest. 

Eight found footage feature films make up the Unnamed Footage Festival livestream:

The Andy Baker Tape is a food vlog gone wrong in a film described as Bon Appétit meets Creep. Landlocked centers around a man who finds a video camera in his childhood home that can see into the past. Horror in the High Desert has already made waves in the found footage horror film community, and is a mockumentary about a man who goes missing in the desert. 

Peoplewatching is a real-life Rear Window featuring footage from the ‘90s taken outside someone’s San Francisco window. Chest is based on actual events of a crew investigating local legends in the Appalachian mountains. Last Radio Call is a police body cam found footage of a police officer going missing in an abandoned hospital. 

Duyster starts off as a historical documentary on an executioner but goes off the rails in what is described as scenes that will surprise even the most seasoned horror fans, and when UFF says that, they mean business. The last feature showing is The Barbados Project, which follows the investigation of a giant creature caught on social media in Barbados. This is also the first found footage horror film from Barbados so it should definitely be one to check out. 

In addition to all these sure-to-be shocking and terrifying features, the livestream will play shorts in between that will make for a great 12 hours. More information and tickets can be found on UnnamedFootageFest.com

We’ll be at the Unnamed Footage Festival! Will you? Check out their announcement trailer below!

Aubrey Plaza Wants to be the Next Tim Burton With ‘Hocus Pocus’ Like Film

Plaza

Aubrey Plaza has long been a self-affirmed “sea hag”. Her dark personality and sense of humor has long been a favorite of ours. Now, with her production company, Evil Hag Productions, she intends to make a family-friendly film that is something like Tim Burton meets Hocus Pocus.

While talking to GQ, Plaza said that she would like to “…fill the Tim Burton slot” by putting together her first directorial effort. The family-friendly affair is said to be a mix of Beetlejuice and Hocus Pocus.

Plaza can currently be seen in Evil Hag Production’s Emily the Criminal and on HBO’s White Lotus season 2.

We can’t wait to see what Plaza has to offer in her directorial efforts. It would be great to see her built a brand and aesthetic as awesome as Burton’s.

Knock

M. Night Shyamalan’s next film is already on its way. The ominous Knock at the Cabin is incredibly intriguing, especially since the first trailer gave away so little. The first poster for Knock at the Cabin is just as ominous as the teaser.

Shyamalan’s last film Old, played up the Twilight Zone like mystery and took it to Sci-Fi levels. Knock at the Cabin looks to trump that and move far into the horror/thriller genre.

The synopsis for Knock at the Cabin goes like this:

“While vacationing at a remote cabin, a young girl and her parents are taken hostage by four armed strangers who demand that the family make an unthinkable choice to avert the apocalypse. With limited access to the outside world, the family must decide what they believe before all is lost.”

Knock at the Cabin arrives in theaters beginning February 3.

Cocaine

Elizabeth Banks has decided to grace our eyeballs with one of the wildest titles, posters and film synopsis’ of the past decade. I’m of course talking about Cocaine Bear. This true story is one of those that you have to see to believe. But, the title is exactly what you think it is.

Kentucky 1985 was the time and place. A really unlucky bear ingested a lot of cocaine that was dropped in the woods by a smuggler. Unfortunately, the bear died from an overdose but not before going on a real rager beforehand.

Deadline’s synopsis for Cocaine Bear is as follows:

“The movie finds an oddball group of cops, criminals, tourists and teens converging in a Georgia forest where a 500- pound apex predator has ingested a staggering amount of cocaine and gone on a coke-fueled rampage for more blow … and blood.”

The film stars Keri Russell, Ray Liotta, Alden Ehrenreich, O’Shea Jackson and Jesse Tyler Ferguson.

Cocaine Bear comes raging into theaters February 24.
