The found footage/first-person evil alien film The Gracefield Incident (2017) is being released by Momentum Pictures to select theaters and VOD/Digital HD on July 21, 2017, and we’ve got a trailer for you. Feast your eyes on this:
The synopsis is as follows:
Matthew Donovan, a video game editor, embeds an iPhone camera into his prosthetic eye to secretly record and document a weekend with friends in a luxurious mountain top cabin. The weekend takes a terrifying turn when a meteorite crashes the party forcing everyone to face the darkest, screaming nightmare while somehow connecting life, love, and loss in a twist of fear.
We’ve seen the “camera-in-the-eye” bit in a few films previously – e.g. V/H/S/2 (2013), Hardcore Henry (2015) – but it is neat device for getting around the whole “why would anyone keep shooting and not just run” problem often associated with found footage. The alien bits seem to be pretty scary in this, as well. It looks like it could be fun, especially for found footage aficionados.
Mathieu Ratthe puts on multiple hats for this production, as he not only writes and directs the film, but he stars as well. Other cast members include Kimberly Laferriere, Victor Andres Turgeon-Trelles, Juliette Gosselin, Alexandre Nachi, and Laurence Dauphinais.
