Frightfest 2015 Podcasts: #5 – The Entity

by Phil Wheat

The Entity: THE RING goes Peruvian ‘found footage’ in a terrific example of the continually igniting South American new horror wave. A group of media students embark on a documentary project covering ‘Reaction Videos’ – filming people watching intense shock footage online to monitor their psychological effect. And they find one example so terrifying the viewers have all died in mysterious circumstances. But what exactly is on this gruesome Internet footage? Their search leads to an obscure corner of cyberspace known as the Dark Web, a Quechua curse dating from the Spanish Inquisition and a demonic power they cannot escape from.

Nerdly writer and hosst of the Britflicks podcast, Stuart Wright, talks to Peruvian director Eduardo Schuldt about making his movie and the burgeoning horror scene in South America.

The Entity has its European Premiere at Frightfest 2015 on Friday 28th August at 3.30pm on Discovery Screen 2.
