A vlogger has to deal with the dark side of going viral when one of his videos contains an alleged haunting.
Death of a Vlogger is a found-footage horror mockumentary about- you guessed it- a video blogger. The vlogs begin innocently enough: silly cat videos, lists of things to do when you’re bored, shenanigans, and other bits of fun that one would expect from their favorite “Youtuber”. Things begin to take an eerie turn when Graham discovers something that is, quite literally, out of this world. He decides to investigate this entity, whatever it is, and this film shows us his trip down the hellish rabbit hole.
I have seen mockumentaries, found footage, and horror films, but this film seems to take on a genre of its own. Though I can’t imagine how Hughes is making an entire film about such a small concept, that air of mystery is intriguing; the trailer left a lot to the imagination. The cinematography in the film does not appear to be as shaky as your typical found-footage film, which is great for those of us who get motion sickness easily. However, it still keeps the “home video” vibe that Hughes seems to be aiming for. Actors in indie films can sometimes be hit or miss, but the acting in the trailer was convincing.
This film is just a niche as it is low-budget, but don’t let that deter you from anticipating its release. It appears that Hughes uses these characteristics to his advantage in Death of a Vlogger, and I believe this will appeal to a wide variety of people.
