The Blackout Experiments seems too creepy to be a real documentary, but it’s the real thing!
When I had finished watching this trailer for The Blackout Experiments I didn’t believe it was a real thing. So I did what everyone else would; I looked it up – yup, Google is your friend! It turns out that this documentary is in fact a real documentary and The Blackout Experiments is about a real thing.
The documentary is directed by Rich Fox and premiered at Sundance Film Festival, so it’s very much a legit thing.
Here’s the plot – and even this sounds like something out of a mockumentary:
This documentary follows a group of people who discover the ultra-scary, psycho-sexual horror experience Blackout, and develop an obsession that hijacks their lives and blurs the line between reality and paranoid fantasy.
Also, we have a full synopsis from the distributor, which offers a lot more and – once again – confirms that this is the real deal:
The most extreme immersive horror experience in America is called Blackout. Not for the faint of heart, it is a terrifying, psycho-sexual thrill-ride designed to play on our deepest psychological fears. Rich Fox’s innovative horror documentary follows a group of friends whose experience with Blackout becomes deeply personal, developing into an obsession that hijacks their lives and blurs the line between reality and paranoid fantasy. Revealing an underbelly of private rituals and personal nightmares with shocking footage that is 100% real, THE BLACKOUT EXPERIMENTS is the story of our collective obsession with the darkness inside us.
I’m am certain it will be very uncomfortable to watch, but you can also be damn sure that I will watch it…
The Blackout Experiments will be out in select theaters and on demand starting July 22, 2016.
