Just as we were posting news about found footage film “paranormal incident” this morning another arrives on its coattails ALSO comprised of found footage. The latest is title 1666, and is currently in post-production. Though you won’t have to wait to long as we have a trailer sent in.
Here is the skinny:
Based on â€˜found footage,â€™ the story centers on four friends in their early 20â€™s.
Last year on the night before Halloween, they decided to go on a self made tour of famous Hollywood murders and celebrity haunted houses. The tour led them to a house known as 1666. They have been missing ever since.
Weâ€™ve all done this, as teenagers – weâ€™ve all heard stories of a local haunted hot spot. In most cases, weâ€™ve gotten into a packed car with a bunch of our friends to go to the location and check it out for ourselves. And more often than not, we ended up having a story on our hands that may or may not have been related to the paranormal. But in that moment, our nerves were high, senses alert and adrenaline pumping.
Imagine your backyard is Hollywood. Imagine that these haunted Hollywood locations are only a few miles away. Be prepared to participate in a haunted tour unlike anything youâ€™ve experienced as you join these four kids through the Hollywood Hills.
They visit houses like where George Reeves (the original Superman) is said to have committed suicide and where he still haunts tenants in his full Superman costume, a story that was retold in Hollywoodland, or the field where the Black Dahlia (Elizabeth Short) was discovered after experiencing one of the most horrific murders in Los Angelesâ€™ history. These are the real-life stories of some of the most famous murders of Old Hollywood. Other haunted stories include Thelma Todd, Sharon Tate (a brutally famous murder ordered by Charles Manson himself), Errol Flynn, Bugsy Siegel and the Houdini Mansion. All of the locations are REAL, all of the stories REAL.
