Exclusive: Echoing the ongoing cultural anxiety about persistent surveillance along with comparatively mundane concerns about terrifying, abusive landlords, the horror pic 13 Cameras presents the creepiest possible version of the domestic side of the American dream. The story follows newlyweds Ryan and Claire, who move into a new house across the country, only to find out that their marital issues are the least of their problems. It seems their grim and lascivious landlord has been spying on them from day one. The worst renter/landlord dispute in history ensues, as you can see for yourself in this exclusive new trailer above.
13 Cameras made a splash last year on the genre festival circuit, playing Fantasia in Montreal and the UK’s Film4 Fright Fest, and Gravitas Ventures has today announced acquisition of the film’s U.S. VOD rights. With theatrical rights already acquired by producer Andrew van den Houten’s 79th & Broadway Releasing banner, 13 Cameras is getting a day and date release beginning April 15.
Written and directed by Victor Zarcoff, it’s produced by Kevin McManus and Matthew McManus, and by Jim Cummings, Ethan Rosenberg, Benjamin Wiessner and Tony Yacenda. Jordan Rudman and Andrew van den Houten executive produced it. P.J. McCabe, Brianne Moncrief and Neville Archambault star.
