It has nothing to do with Bram, but rather belongs to a newer genre tradition.

Screen Media has announced that it has picked up U.S. rights to STOKER HILLS, with a day-and-date release set for January. The found-footage chiller was directed by Benjamin Louis from a script by Jonah Kuehner, and stars William Lee Scott, Danny Nucci, David Gridley, Vince Hill-Bedford, Steffani Brass, Eric Etebari and Tony Todd. The synopsis: “In the secluded town of Stoker Hills, three college students filming a horror movie find themselves trapped in their own worst nightmare. Their only hope for survival is two detectives who find the camera they left behind in the woods.”

“We’re always on the hunt for new, innovative genre voices, and we found just that with director Benjamin Louis,” says Screen Media in a statement. “His fresh take on the found footage subgenre surprises at every turn.”
