Low-Budget horror films, especially in the found-footage subgenre, have been profit machines for independent production companies in the recent years. Everything from the Blair Witch Project to the more recent Paranormal Activity franchise, and even cult classics like V/H/S have shown that indie horror has staying power.
Brett Ratner is set to executive produce 3 Videotoapes.
