The makers of a chilling new horror movie in which an actress was nearly throttled are to go ahead with the delayed premiere after police released the unedited footage.
"The Lucifer Effect" should have been shown at the Cannes Film Festival in May, but the production was delayed when police in the UK investigating the terrifying strangling incident seized the raw footage.
The movie was then set to premiere at the Paramount Studios Screening Rooms in Melrose Avenue, Hollywood, California, on 27 October to coincide with the Halloween period but the director has since gone into hiding in Salvador, after unconfirmed reports in the Brazilian press, that one of the cast members has been hospitalized.
The Blair Witch style footage was shot in an abandoned mental asylum in Lincolnshire and is the first to explore the original directors controversial "enigmatic" technique in which actors have no access to a script and no idea what is going on. In this case, the Film centers around 8 people that won, bought or were awarded - what they thought was a Role in a Movie called "The Harrowing" - only to be locked in the Abandoned Mental Asylum for three days as part of a social experiment.
"The Lucifer Effect"is a found footage or hidden footage movie that seeks to demonstrate the so-called "Lucifer Effect" - a psychological condition brought about by trapping good people into an evil place; first, studied in the controversial 'Stanford Prison Experiment' in the 1970s, which had to be shut down as the students became increasingly abusive towards each other.
