The filmmakers have sent along a new clip to help get you all in the mood for the scares to come – check this out!
Just to refresh your memories a bit – here’s the official breakdown of the project: Written and directed by brothers Colin and Cameron Cairnes, the team behind 2013’s critically acclaimed 100 Bloody Acres, Scare Campaign explores what happens when a reality TV prank show’s latest victim unexpectedly turns the tables on the cast and crew. Explains Cameron, “[Scare Campaign] really evolved from us watching YouTube clips — stuff where elaborate pranks get a bit out of hand, where people are really put under duress. There’s a funny one from Mexico that did the rounds a few years back. People enter a lift, the lift breaks down, and then suddenly this ghost girl appears behind them, screaming. People were genuinely freaking out at the sight of this girl! So our idea was ‘what if one of those people, those victims, turned on this girl and the people behind the prank?” “What if they pranked the wrong guy?” prompts Colin. Synopsis: The crew of a reality TV prank show facing dwindling ratings decides to up the ante by setting up a terrifying prank in an abandoned asylum. Things go horribly wrong when they prank the wrong guy. Brothers Colin and Cameron Cairnes (100 BLOODY ACRES) deliver a night of blood-soaked terror full of twists and turns that will satisfy any gore hound. Scare Campaign stars Meegan Warner (“Turn: Washington’s Spies”, The Veil), Ian Meadows (“The Pacific”), Olivia DeJonge (M. Night Shyamalan’s The Visit), and Josh Quong Tart (“Home And Away”).
