With the ever-growing developments in technology, it is easier now more than ever for an individual to gain access to just about anything on the internet. Due to people becoming successful and somewhat famous on YouTube, many people strive to gain the same notoriety, doing whatever it may take to get noticed. The downside to this is that some people go a little bit further than they should, resulting in horrible consequences–3 guys, 1 hammer anyone?
Horror filmmaker, Edward Payson, has jumped on this idea, which goes along perfectly well with the found-footage craze, and developed The Cohasset Snuff Film, which follows a disturbed young man as he commits “real” murders on three teens in his town of Cohasset, Massachusetts (my home state, son!).
The new movie is marketed as a real video that was filmed in 2009 by 17 year-old Collin Mason, who murdered three girls, filmed it, and then uploaded his escapades onto the internet. There aren’t many details about the film, probably to make audiences believe that it’s actually real, but a trailer was just recently released.
Check it out below and tell me what you think. It gives me chills because I’m sure there are crazy bastards who do commit heinous acts while simultaneously filming it, enjoying every disturbing minute of it (again, 3 guys, 1 hammer).
