WNUF Halloween Special (1987)

This is a couple of months late, but I just stumbled upon this homage to 80s cable access television, wrapped around a found footage concept that sounds pretty awesome. I’m in love with the idea, but I’m afraid that it won’t deliver any actual scariness and just comes off as goofy. I feel like it’s really going to hang on the actors to make it feel like an actual news broadcast and if any one of them isn’t up to the task, it will just be ruined. I’m just hoping and hoping that the tone is going to be what I want it to be. IMDB even has it in the “Comedy Horror” category, which is disconcerting, but I hope it’s more horror than comedy.

Here is the trailer, that I’ve only purposely watched about 1/4 of. The first quarter of the trailer, at least, sets the tone I’m looking for, but I guess I’ll just have to watch it and find out.

Anyone else check this out already?

Could be fun, but I’m only seeing it available as a $23 DVD purchase on alternativecinema.com.

I really did get a very strong Ghostwatch vibe from that… Maybe just me…
