HORROR AND PERISCOPE MERGE!

This is the first LIVE PERISCOPE horror movie.. Blumhouse presents ‘FIFTEEN.’

And this, my friends, is the future of horror.. movies.. streamed live. I hope to theaters though eventually. I still enjoy a larger screen for my frightful delights..

This is how THE VERGE described the short SCARE-I-SCOPE: 



What’s most clever about Fifteen is that it blurs the line between fiction and reality by making Periscope a plot device unto itself. In the world of the film, Truman is a serial killer that live streams his crimes, and what we as an audience watch as Fifteen is actually his ninth broadcast; he’s become so notorious in the fictional world, that a radio station in the short actually breaks into its broadcast to inform listeners that he’s begun streaming. Of course, given that it’s all coming from the Periscope account of a prominent movie production company there’s some awkward references to passwords being easy to hack to justify it all, but it’s nevertheless an intriguing (and somewhat disturbing) experiment for horror fans — even if Truman comes off a little hammy at times.
