We Should Get Inside …. Exclusive Clip for Eduardo Sanchez’s “Exists”

While it comes across as rather unthreatening, the grainy, super 8 footage of the unidentified subject also known as “Bigfoot” shot way back in 1967 is legend because it is perpetually shrouded in mystery. The found footage subgenre is perhaps one of the better formulas for tapping into the fear of the unknown, and filmmaker Eduardo Sanchez who gave us The Blair Witch Project certainly can attest the strengths of the aesthetic and narrative strategy. Landing at this year’s SXSW, Sanchez’s fifth feature Exists (Lionsgate – October 24th) which drops in select theaters and On Demand this Friday, the clip below reminds us that it’s not all fun and games when you’re in the backwoods.
