Welcome to the family! When The Screaming Starts is What We Do In The Shadows meets murder-cult with a dash of Shaun of the Dead. Making a name for yourself can be murder, as Aidan Mendle is about to learn. Aidan's ultimate dream is to be an infamous serial killer, so he sets out to create a death cult. When struggling journalist Norman is invited to follow Aidan on his journey, he believes he has finally landed his big break. But as Aidan and his newly recruited murder cult embark on a blood-soaked rampage, Norman’s dream of becoming a renowned filmmaker seem to veer more toward nightmare territory. Who will be remembered, who will be forgotten and who will be left behind chopped into little pieces?
FANGORIA EIC Phil Nobile Jr. very accurately referred to this as “The This is Spinal Tap of found footage horror."
