EXCLUSIVE: Go Behind the Scenes of Action Horror Film AFFLICTED

Nerdist has an exclusive first look at the behind-the-scenes featurette for the acclaimed new action horror film Afflicted. The film, written, directed and starring Derek Lee and Cliff Prowse, cleaned up on the festival circuit last year winning Best Picture (Horror), Best Screenplay (Horror), Best Director (Horror) at Fantastic Fest as well as Best Canadian First Feature Film at Toronto International Film Festival.

Shot on a budget of under $300,000, Afflicted had big ambitions, as Prowse mentions in the video, saying, “We knew we wanted to do something cool, it was going to be genre and it was going to be for an amount of money that we could raise ourselves.“ From the looks of the footage, visually, the film succeeds. The running gag is awesome and the practical body horror effects look disgusting in all the best ways.

Have a look at the exclusive behind-the-scenes featurette for Afflicted below! The film is in select theaters now and is available on iTunes, Amazon and VOD.

    Saw the movie last night. It looked good and was a cool concept, but the storytelling fell way short. It was a long demo reel but special effects people need to reach out to screenwriters so they go into production with better stories.
