The reborn trend of found-footage-movies (a.k.a. fake documentaries or mockumentaries), is like a snowball rolling down a slope, growing bigger and bigger for every positive box office return, like Paranormal Activity 2 and The Last Exorcism, for instance.
Howie Askins’s Evidence is another one in the pipe that seems, judging by the trailer, to be able to give us some suspenseful and scary found-footage, by the bucketload.
Evidence digs into the footage taken by Ryan, while making a documentary about his friend Brett’s first camping experience. Soon after the camping trip begins, they discover that something mysterious is following them in their tracks.
I think that the trailer seems promising and toward the end of it, if you look closely, you can see something blurry in the background, rapidly approaching the terrified girl, which doesn’t seem friendly . . .
Since the movie went into post-production in October last year, I assume that it will be released sometime this year, but I’ll keep you posted.
