A throwback to the early days of the found footage genre, The Outwaters will open in select theaters this February from Cinedigm and Screambox.
“Memory cards unearthed in a remote stretch of the Mojave Desert tell the story of four travelers who vanished during a sun-drenched camping trip. One night, everything changes when the foursome is sent on a mind-bending voyage of unrelenting terror into a world of darkness that no human was ever meant to see.”
The trailer teases a visceral film, which began with an award-winning festival run — where it was hailed as one of the year’s scariest movies.
Writer-director Robbie Banfitch takes viewers on a descent into madness.
“It’s been a longtime dream to make a scary movie,” says Banfitch. “I’m grateful that people will have a chance to watch The Outwaters on the silver screen because we need that. All of us. Somehow, terror feels good in a place like this.”
The Outwaters stars Banfitch, Angela Basolis, Michelle May, Scott Schamell, and Leslie Ann Banfitch and features original music by Salem Belladonna. It’s produced by Beau J. Genot and Banfitch, with Robert Abramoff serving as executive producer.
The Outwaters opens in theaters on February 9, 2023, ahead of its Screambox release.
