ABOUT THE FILM
SEE NO EVIL, HEAR NO EVIL, SPEAK NO EVIL
Three characters lose their senses of sight, hearing and speech. After waking up in an abandoned mall from the 90s, they realize they are not alone. Follow the Leader is a genre pushing horror/thriller that jumps in and out of the perspective of these three characters. As they’re being hunted, they must learn how to survive, how to trust each other and if they even should trust each other.
Throughout the duration of the film the viewer will be placed into the perspective of each character, being deprived of a particular sense. We as filmmakers are trying to strip back the voyeuristic nature of the horror film and place the audience behind the eyes of the characters, only entering into these first-person views periodically throughout the duration of the film in order to better relate to their situation.
