A found-footage, mystery/horror film
From the award-winning creators of the theatrical hit, Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde comes the quirky, found-footage thriller and Cult Critic Movie Magazine award-winner, The Lost Footage of Leah Sullivan.
Synopsis: A young journalism student decides to return to her hometown to investigate a brutal murder that took place thirty years prior. Without much hope of finding any real answers, she interviews a series of local characters, all of whom leave their own bewildering take on the legendary Mulcahy Murders in her student film. As the facts unravel, she begins to realize that this cold case murder may not be so cold after all. Along with the help of the handsome deputy police officer, Patrick Rooke, she begins to uncover the horrifying truth of what really happened that night thirty years ago. As she gets closer to discovering the truth, she edges even closer to her own demise. Will her blind ambition overtake her desire to survive?
