Found Footage Flick “Altar” Makes Its Way to VOD

Last year, on episode  164 of Horror News Radio, the Grue-Crew took a look at the found footage fright flick  Altar as it made its festival rounds. If you were unable to catch it in the festivals, now is your chance to watch it on VOD. It is now available on iTunes, Amazon, Google Play, Xbox, and Playstation Network, and it is making its way to Hulu on July 1, 2017. Here is a look at the trailer:

Here is the official synopsis:

Altar is the terrifying story of a group of college classmates who get lost driving to a reunion campout in the Sierra Nevada mountains. After stopping for the night, they stumble onto something darker and must escape the evil they’ve unleashed. Not only are their lives in danger, but their immortal souls as well.

Is it worth watching? If you are on the fence, head on over and take a listen to episode 164 of Horror News Radio to see what the Grew-Crew has to say about the film. They are joined by Michael Steinberg, the owner of Found Footage Critic website and co-host of the Found Footage Files podcast. There seem  to be some differences of opinion  among the group. After you watch the film, give the podcast a listen and see how your take on the film lines up with theirs.
