High school loner Bird Fitcher has no idea what dark secrets are tied to the mysterious Polaroid vintage camera she stumbles upon, but it doesn’t take long to discover that those who have their picture taken meet a tragic end.I like the look of Polaroid. It has a very simple, quite old school, horror feel to it. Kids find cursed object. Kids die. Survivors try to break curse.
There's a Friday The 13th: The Series vibe to this, as well as a bit of Warehouse 13 and The Librarians (but probably with less chuckles).
I'm not saying it's at all original, but it looks like it could be fun.
The gamer in me always sees potential in 'modern objects with supernatural powers' as well (just see The Book Of Contemporary Magic Items), which is why I like to see how these stories play out.
Polaroid is due to hit cinemas on August 25.
