Director Olatunde Osunsanmi must be a happy camper right now, because Image Entertainment has acquired the rights to distribute his horror/thriller film Evidence for the U.S. As of right now it looks as if the film will be coming out this summer.
In this unique “found footage” thriller, a team of detectives attempt to piece together a brutal massacre using a number of recording devices found at the crime scene. The footage reveals a group of bus passengers who are forced to fight for their lives after they crash in the middle of the desert outside Las Vegas while a mysterious killer violently murders them one by one.
Horror fans will best remember Olatunde Osunsanmi from his 2009 film The Fourth Kind, which he wrote and directed. The quality of that film is debatable, but I think Olatunde crafted a fairly chilling movie that proves he has a lot to offer the horror genre. And while the “found footage” premise may turn some off, the narrative framework surrounding it is unique enough to help it stand out from the typical films of this type.
