CBS Films' Afflicted has the potential to be a surprise horror hit. Found footage may be a stale concept at this point, but from what I've heard from TIFF and Fantastic Fest shows that the movie has the potential to launch writer/directors and Clif Prowse from up-and-coming filmmakers to a modern horror duo that could define the next wave of the genre.
We should gear up to see a lot more from Afflicted, as it's finally gotten a theatrical and VOD release set for April 4. There's no word on how big of a theatrical release it will be, but you can definitely check out the movie on iTunes, Amazon, VUDU, Google Play, Cable On Demand, Playstation and XBOX no matter where you are.
Clif Prowse, Derek Lee, Edo Van Breemen, Zachary Gray, and Baya Rehaz star in the movie.
This terrifying horror thriller follows two best friends who set out on the trip of a lifetime around the world. Their journey, documented every step of the way, soon takes a dark and unexpected turn after an encounter with a beautiful woman in Paris leaves one of them mysteriously afflicted. Winner: Best Picture (Horror), Best Screenplay (Horror), Best Director (Horror) at Fantastic Fest, and recipient of awards of recognition from the Toronto International Film Festival and the Sitges International Fantastic Film Festival. AFFLICTED is one of the most suspenseful and original action horror debuts in a generation.
