Blumhouse’s psychological cyberworld-thriller logs onto screens for week-long run beginning November 16th. Daniel Goldhaber and Isa Mazzei’s electrifying debut intimately and chillingly explores the world of webcamming, from the producers of the Oscar winning Get Out and Whiplash.
CAM is a technology-driven psychological thriller set in the world of webcam porn. It follows Alice, an ambitious camgirl, who wakes up one day to discover she’s been replaced on her show with an exact replica of herself. As this copy begins to push the boundaries of Alice’s internet identity, the control that Alice has over her life, and the men in it, vanishes. While she struggles to regain what she’s lost, she slowly finds herself drawn back to her show and to the mysterious person who has taken her place.
Daniel Goldhaber directed the film, which was co-financed by Blumhouse Productions and Gunpowder & Sky and produced by Divide/Conquer. Goldhaber also co-wrote the story with Isabelle Link-Levy and Isa Mazzei, who penned the script from her experience as an ex-camgirl, making CAM a rare film about sex work openly written by a sex worker. Link-Levy, Adam Hendricks, John Lang, Greg Gilreath produced.
CAM premiered at this year’s Fantasia International Film Festival in Montreal and stars Madeline Brewer (The Handmaid’s Tale), Patch Darragh (The First Purge), Melora Walters (Venom), and Devin Druid (“13 Reasons Why”). The film took home the best first feature and best screenplay awards from Fantasia and recently won best actress, a special jury prize for production design, and the audience award at the Brooklyn Horror Film Festival.
CAM will be screening at Alamo Drafthouse Yonkers, NY, South Lamar in Austin, and Park North in San Antonia! Visit www.drafthouse.com for tickets and showtimes.
