DVD Review: Hazard (2013)

Hazard blends psuedo Reality TV & Found Footage; although it isn’t really a found footage movie, released on DVD in the UK by 101 Films.

Written and directed by Lou Simon the film stars Norbert Velez, Aniela McGuinness and Todd Bruno.

Based around the fictional hidden-camera pranks show ‘Scary Antics’ where a group of friends wants to set up Jacob, a disturbed young man who is having problems adjusting after his father’s death, at a chemical factory.  Jacob is convinced that the factory is haunted, and now Scary Antics is going to prove him right.
