EAST COAST PREMIERE

For newlyweds Altair and Manuel, things couldn’t be better. They’re ready to begin their new lives together and in an effort to document their happiness, Manuel begins recording their post-marriage bliss with a Super-8 camera. Suddenly acting strangely, Altair’s demeanor changes as she begins to claim she’s able to talk to God and starts to build a black brick door in her bedroom. Then, just like that, Altair and Manuel disappear, only leaving behind the latter’s 8mm tapes.

Just when you thought found-footage horror was dead, along comes 1974, a seriously creepy hybrid of haunted house movie, possession story, and otherworldly unpredictability. Elevating Mexican writer-director Victor Dryere’s film above all other recent found-footage is its masterfully executed 8mm aesthetic, which helps put 1974 in the same league as PARANORMAL ACTIVITY—trust us, it’s that legit. —Matt Barone
