Afflicted (formerly known as Ends of the Earth)
is a found footage horror film (go ahead and roll your eyes) that is
playing TIFF 2013 as part of its Midnight Madness section.
The debut feature for Cliff Prowse and Derek Lee, also its stars, is about a dream vacation to the end of the world that goes horribly wrong (not like they go horribly right in horror movies) when a mysterious affliction takes over the entire body of one of them. And creates some new abilities.
I sense a horror style superhero in the making in the inevitable sequels.
The poster is suitably brainy, weird and disgusting.
