Revelation Film Festival has announced the addition of a special live horror film to their inaugural Couched online film fest set to screen live on Friday, July 10 and Saturday, July 18 at 7:30pm WST, accessible worldwide.
A groundbreaking event, In The Shadow It Waits is a horror film performed live and edited in real-time. With 61 scenes, 58 camera setups and actors performing live from their own homes in different states across Australia, the film is made live as the audience views it.
Writer, producer and director Michael Beets says it’s a live horror show that looks like a film. “This project was created and rehearsed entirely in isolation, in fact, the actors and myself have never met. We’ve created a meticulously rehearsed performance that feels like a film but hinges on the excitement and energy of live performance.
“It will make you forget that everything – from the editing to the performance – is happening in real time with actors from around Australia. We look forward to bringing the energy of live performance to Rev’s audiences.”
The film tells the story of four 20-something co-workers, bored with their day jobs and sick of being locked up in isolation, who play a silly online game and unwittingly prove the truth of an urban legend. Horror, right? And while these co-workers might not be able to get out, it doesn’t mean that something can’t get in. Would you dare to play?
Screening from Thursday, July 9 to Sunday, July 19 Couched will present over 30 feature narrative and documentary films plus a selection of short films from all corners of the globe, Q&A’s, special events and panel discussions. Films will also be available for rent for a 24-hour period through the festival.
Revelation Film Festival’s addition of In The Shadow It Waits to their Couched online film fest is set for two screenings on Friday, July 10 and Saturday, July 18 at 7:30pm WST. For tickets and more info head to revelationfilmfest.org.
