There’s No Forgiveness in the ‘Dooms Chapel Horror’
I once thought that the found footage horror sub-genre was nothing more than lazy film making, but I couldn’t have been more wrong. Films like As Above So Below and VHS are far from lazy and go a long way in proving that the medium can house fantastic stories told with a different approach to make you feel the uneasiness that horror was intended to accomplish. The trailer for THE DOOMS CHAPEL HORROR did not only that, but left a pit in my stomach that I haven’t felt since The Blair Witch Project trailer released in 1998. A bit of a cliche, I know… but I’m serious.
The indie horror, directed by John William Holt and written by Jason Turner, became available on DVD and VOD platforms on June 14th. The feature focuses on the character Kyle, who returns to his small hometown for the first time in ten years. From the trailer, it looks as if Kyle returns with a film crew that is doing a documentary on him, the town of Kaler Mills, and the accident that occurred prior to his departure.
