Altar has been gaining a little steam among the horror community. It’s another found footage flick that pits a small group of friends directly in the path of peril. It doesn’t sound wildly original, but if word-of-mouth holds any weight, the execution of the film is excellent and the impression is memorable. Fortunately for horror fans, we’ll be able to formulate our opinions soon, as Movie Heroes Studios and Distribber have partnered to make the flick available this July.
Matthew Sconce writes and directs.
Stefanie Estes, Tim Parrish, Brittany Falardeau, Jessica Strand and Deep Rai star.
