Halloween’s still a while away, but you can always try to beat the summer heat by sitting down to watch a film that might send chills up your spine. The Paranormal Incident, the latest in the recent trend of found footage spookfests, hits DVD this week and to celebrate, we have 3 copies to give away to lucky readers!
A group of young students are embarking on a film project in The Paranormal Incident whereby they are going to lock themselves into, and explore, an old mental asylum to search for evidence of the paranormal.
The film is set in the infamous Odenbrook Sanatorium, closed after a mass suicide occurred within its walls. Sixty years later, six college students armed with cameras and recording equipment venture into the asylum – some with the aim of proving and some to disprove the existence of the paranormal.
On the first night, John (Oliver Rayon) has to leave and then one by one, members of the group go missing without a sound, cell phones mysteriously vanish, corridors turn into mazes, walls appear where doors once stood, flashlights fail and something or someone begins toying with the group.
Four days later, John wakes up alone in a hospital bed covered in blood, cuts and bruises, experiencing terrifying flashbacks. He has no idea how he got there or what is going on. An investigator (Amanda Barton) tells him that his friends have disappeared and it is likely that John murdered them.
Together they go through the recovered footage from the camcorders and the building CCTV. John must piece together what happened from the evidence and his fractured subconscious to find out the truth….
