Horror will come into focus this fall when the feature-film version of Norwegian director, Lars Klevberg’s 14-minute short film, POLAROID reaches audiences on August 25, 2017. Hopes are high as Klevberg’s screamer won the Best Short and Best Cinematography awards at the 2015 Los Angeles Horror competition.

Produced by Roy Lee and Chris Bender, guys who brought us scares like The Ring, The Grudge, Dark Water and The Ring Two, Dimension Films believes Polaroid has the makings of a franchise horror series. Let’s hope the vintage camera flashes and creepy click-whirs are used to full effect.

Polaroid brandishes a solid lineup of acting talent, including Kathryn Prescott (Finding Carter), Mitch Pileggi (The X-Files), Grace Zabriskie (The Grudge), Tyler Young (Eyewitness), Keenan Tracey (Bates Motel), Samantha Logan (The Fosters), Priscilla Quintana (Stranded), Madelaine Petsch (Riverdale) and Javier Botet (Mama, IT).

MODERN HORRORS is excited to share their eerie teaser poster below. No need to shake this Polaroid. You never know who or what you’ll make angry.

High school loner Bird Fitcher has no idea what dark secrets are tied to the Polaroid vintage camera she stumbles upon, but it doesn’t take long to discover that those who have their picture taken meet a tragic end. Based on the award-winning short by Lars Klevberg, the story mixes elements of THE RING and FINAL DESTINATION to create one of the most unique and scary films.
