Disgraced vlogger makes a comeback in a haunted house, in this perfect late-night movie.
Disgraced internet personality tries to win back his followers by livestreaming himself spending one night alone in an abandoned haunted house. When he accidentally comes across a vengeful spirit, his comeback becomes a real-time fight for his life (and social relevance) as he faces off with the spirit’s own powerful following.
The Blair Witch Project meets Evil Dead for the YouTube Generation, in this horror comedy by directing siblings Vanessa and Joseph Winter. The latter also stars as the toxic, narcissistic vlogger Shawn Ruddy. He is a charismatic idiot, who gets practically every situation wrong and manages to be offensive and insensitive about everything. The set-up of Deadstream is simple, as it is pretty much Ruddy with his camera. But scattered throughout the film are lots of short videos from other sources that liven up the story. Combining brilliant all practical effects with killer humour, Deadstream is the perfect late-night movie.
