The first teaser trailer has been released for a newfound footage-style horror movie from Blumhouse and Momentum Pictures called Dashcam. The movie comes from genre filmmaker Rob Savage, who broke out in 2020 with a Zoom horror movie titled Host, which he shot during the Corona pandemic.
The story follows two friends on “a horror-fueled road trip as they Livestream the most terrifying night of their lives.” The movie is “framed within a Livestream” and its centers on an indie-rock musician who portrays a self-consciously obnoxious exaggeration of her own polarizing online persona. “Exasperated and depressed by her pandemic lifestyle in Los Angeles, she breaks quarantine for London, England, and the hospitality of a former bandmate. But when her fringe beliefs and selfish behavior incite contempt from her progressive friends, her response inadvertently propels her (and her online audience) into a perilous and profane high-wire horror chase through an increasingly foreboding English countryside.”
The movie is also said to have “a manic momentum, innovative camerawork, and shockingly cavalier nihilism reminiscent of the original Evil Dead, Savage and his lead have fearlessly constructed an uncomfortable emblem of triggering social media extremities in this anti-hero, and they put her (and the unfortunate souls in her orbit) through a dizzying wringer of inventive gore, gallows humor, and impish provocations. Audiences will either smash that proverbial like button, or be incensed to tweet vitriol, but the discourse that erupts is guaranteed to leave a mark.”
The cast also includes Annie Hardy as “Herself,” Amar Chadha-Patel as Stretch, Angela Enahoro as Angela, and Seylan Baxter as Seylan.
Dashcam will be coming out in select theaters and on VOD starting on June 3rd, 2022.
