There’s something truly disturbing in the idea of the found-footage horror genre. It presents a scenario where everything that the viewers are seeing is something that actually happened to the protagonists of the same film. In the case of Running Scared, an upcoming horror release, the same factor is very much in play. It also manages to capitalize on the unique environment of an ancient location in an ancient land, which becomes a place of utter terror. Check out its offical trailer right here:

The film was made as a Blue Mist Entertainment production and Alfie McArthur is one of the key individuals behind it. He is a multi-talented professional, having experience both as a professional boxer and now a cinematic creator. That is very much a unique combination.
The same versatility is immediately seen in Running Scared, which features a real place. This is a castle somewhere in Scotland and the trailer quickly shows some unnerving elements, like its vax figures. From here, the protagonists begin a filmed search for a supernatural presence and they have the misfortune of actually finding it as well.
The dynamic cast and the sense of realism both merge for this film and provide what seems to be a very promising indie horror film. It is also going to be a release that no fan of the found footage genre will want to miss.
