Horror film The Cleansing Hour Uses Blackmagic Design

PostTue Oct 20, 2020 1:52 pm

Blackmagic Design announced today that “The Cleansing Hour,” starring Ryan Guzman, Kyle Gallner and Alix Angelis, utilized Blackmagic cameras, ATEM switchers and converters in production, as well as DaVinci Resolve Studio in post production, to create the unique show within a show horror film.

Millennial entrepreneurs, Drew and Max, run a popular webcast that streams live exorcisms. But the performances are, in fact, elaborately staged hoaxes. The two get their comeuppance when their newest actress becomes mysteriously possessed by a real demon, that holds the crew hostage. The film premiered on streaming channel Shudder on October 8th.

The concept originated from director Damien LeVeck’s background in reality television. “I've observed that whenever people see a video on the Internet, especially if it's of lower quality, they automatically think it looks and feels more realistic. And this was during a time when people were putting more and more outrageous things on Facebook, just for attention. So, I wondered what would happen if somebody was trying to fake an audience with exorcisms and then was forced to deal with a real one?”
