The horror film genre toys around with our perspective and those of its protagonists, making us wonder who is actually doing the watching. It tears the viewer away from their comfort zone. Like no other genre, horror films are predestined for current technologies like virtual reality. INTERFILM has spent the last few years observing the developments in VR technology and is ready to explore the new narrative possibilities. And the best horror stories start with a campfire, and a cameo by Robert Englund (Freddy Krueger).
