Called “a throwback to the early days of the found-footage genre,” The Outwaters starring Robbie Banfitch, Angela Basolis, Michelle May, Scott Schamell and Leslie Ann Banfitc opens in theaters beginning February 9. In the film, four travelers experience a mind-bending trip through terror while camping in a remote stretch of the Mojave desert.
Written and directed by Robbie Banfitch, The Outwaters takes viewers off the beaten path and into their own nightmares. The film plays out over three memory cards found in a sun-drenched section of the Mojave Desert. The footage within is that of a foursome, who set out to make a music video while camping, led by a charismatic LA filmmaker. Their trip starts out uneventful, though their peace is occasionally disrupted by unexplained sounds, vibrations, and unnatural animal behavior. Then one night everything changes, sending the foursome on a mind-bending trip through terror.
