The new found footage horror movie A town full of ghosts has just been released in digital, and the film shows that “certain cities must remain forgotten”. In the spirit of The Blair Witch Project, the film takes the concept of found footage out of the woods and into a remote Texas ghost town. As you can see in the trailer below, this is a place that truly is a “ghost town” in more ways than one.
The film hails from filmmaker Isaac Rodriguez and stars Andrew C. Fisher, Mandy Lee Rubio, Lauren Lox, Sarah Froelich, Keekee Suki and Vania Vasquez; Rodriguez also appears in the film. You can read the official synopsis below.
Mark and his wife Jenna sell everything they have to buy a western ghost town called Blackwood Falls in the middle of nowhere. They plan to turn the ghost town into a tourist attraction with hotels, restaurants and attractions. They hire a small film crew to document their trip and upload the videos to their video channel. When funding fails, they find themselves stuck in the middle of nowhere. Things take a turn when Mark discovers the town has a horrific death story. He secretly digs deeper into the past and stumbles upon something wrong.
Tensions begin to rise when one of the film crew goes missing and everyone finds themselves trapped in the town. Jenna hatches a plan to escape, but Mark begins to lose his mind and takes matters into his own hands. Jenna makes one last attempt to escape the city. She gets lost in the wooden maze as something evil pursues her. She must escape or become an eternal resident of Blackwood Falls.
City of Ghosts director Isaac Rodriguez knew the location was perfect for a horror movie
The inspiration for A town full of ghosts came from Isaac Rodriguez visiting the location in Austin. This was coupled with another story he had heard about a YouTuber who had also moved to a California ghost town, and all the pieces fell into place from there with the crafting of this story.
“After visiting the ghost town of J. Lorraine, TX in Austin, TX, I was immediately inspired to make my next film there,” Rodriguez said. “The city was actually built entirely by the current owner. Some of the buildings were very small and looked fake, but I knew I could work that into the story. A few months ago I saw a YouTuber who sold everything and moved into a real ghost town in California I wanted to use this basic idea with a married couple and add a the brilliant vibe.”
A town full of ghosts is now available digitally.
