A New York Times Critic’s Pick, found footage cosmic horror hit The Outwaters will stream exclusively on SCREAMBOX and release on digital platforms this Friday, February 17, via Cinedigm and Bloody Disgusting.
During its theatrical run, the film set off Apple Watch heart monitors, made viewers uncomfortably nauseous, and caused in-theater anxiety. Now fans can experience what Jezebel calls a “mind-twisting, narrative-pulverizing vision of horror” from the comfort of home.
Critics are responding to The Outwaters, which is currently 71% Fresh on Rotten Tomatoes. Rolling Stone hailed it as “obscenely effective,” while JoBlo said, “The film’s final 10 minutes are amongst the most gruesome and uncomfortable moments in any horror film I have ever seen.”
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.
Writer-director Robbie Banfitch delivers what Collider describes as “brutal brilliance in the desolation of the desert.” Banfitch stars with Angela Basolis, Michelle May, Scott Schamell and Leslie Ann Banfitch. The film is produced by Beau J. Genot and Banfitch with Robert Abramoff serving as executive producer.
The Outwaters joins SCREAMBOX’s growing library of unique horror content, including Terrifier 2, Pennywise: The Story of IT, Masters of Horror, 13 Nights of Elvira, Body Snatchers, History of the Occult, and Toxic Crusaders.
