The Outwaters - Horror Film

The Outwaters – Horror Film

A throwback to the early days of the found-footage genre, Cinedigm and Bloody Disgusting are releasing The Outwaters in theaters beginning February 9. The buzz around the film has been growing steadily since its successful festival run and culminated when its teaser trailer was shown ahead of Terrifier 2, which was also distributed by Cinedigm and Bloody Disgusting, this past October. Following its theatrical run, the Company plans to release The Outwaters exclusively on its horror streaming service as a SCREAMBOX Original.

Written and directed by Robbie Banfitch, The Outwaters  takes viewers off the beaten path and into their own nightmares. The film plays out over three memory cards found in a sun-drenched section of the Mojave Desert. The footage within is that of a foursome, who set out to make a music video while camping, led by a charismatic LA filmmaker. Their trip starts out uneventful, though their peace is occasionally disrupted by unexplained sounds, vibrations, and unnatural animal behavior. Then one night everything changes, sending the foursome on a mind-bending trip through terror.

I’m the writer/director of “The Outwaters” and I’m excited to share this movie with the world. It was filmed in the dark and dust and along the sand-swept highways of the Mojave. I’m proud of what our cast and crew accomplished together and will look back on this shoot as one of the best times of my life. It’s been a longtime dream to make a “scary movie”. I hesitate to say much about the film itself, so I’ll just say this: if I’ve done my job well, it should raise hairs and evoke chills, even from die-hard horror fans. I aimed for a naturalistic, slow-burn experience that will take its audience to a place they’ve never been, and then beyond. I aimed for something lovely, dark and deep. Scary movies, of course, are best viewed in the dark, so turn off the lights, make some popcorn and start the show. We invite you on a unique, otherworldly voyage into chaos.
