Afflicted ★★★½

Midnight FrightFest screeing #1 was this found footage/faux documentary that was perhaps my biggest and most pleasant surprise.

Two life-long friends embark on a trip across the world and plan to record or document everything and post it live and have friends and subscribers interact. A sweet central relationship takes back seat to the more outlandish horror aspects as the story goes to unpredictable and ridiculous avenues.

A film that has come out of nowhere for me, the budget may be big. I dunno. But it was very impressively made with really great effects.

Think of this as a horror Chronicle and you won't go wrong.
