Earlier this month we brought you the trailer for IFC Midnight's upcoming video-chat thriller THE DEN and today we have the official poster to share with you ahead of the films March 14 debut in select theaters and VOD.
While THE DEN isn't quite a found footage movie, it instead focuses on "video chatting," which I guess the kids are into nowadays. After this movie, they might think twice about that…
Directed by Zach Donohue, THE DEN goes like this:
After receiving a grant for her graduate thesis, Elizabeth Benton (Melanie Papalia) logs onto a video-chat site known as THE DEN, on a mission to explore the habits of its users. During one of her random video-chats, Elizabeth watches in horror as a teenage girl is gruesomely murdered in front of her webcam. While the police dismiss it as a viral prank, Elizabeth believes what she saw is real and takes it upon herself to find the truth. Her life quickly spirals out of control as she gets pulled deeper into the darkest recesses of the internet. And eventually, Elizabeth finds herself trapped in a twisted game in which she and her loved ones are targeted for the same grisly fate as the first victim.
THE DEN stars Melanie Papalia, Adam Shapiro, David Schlactenhaufen and Matt Riedy. It opens in select theaters & VOD on Friday, March 14th.
