Being an influencer can be dangerous work...
...Global View Entertainment has announced a premiere date and released the first look at Followed, a new horror film from director Antoine Le and writer Todd Klick! The film is inspired by real events at the Hotel Cecil in downtown Los Angeles, which asks the question, what would you do for internet fame?
"When aspiring social media influencer “DropTheMike” is offered a lucrative sponsorship to grow his channel, he's joined by his video crew on a visit to one of the most haunted hotels in America, where he'll give his audience a horrific night of thrill-seeking the likes of which they have never seen before. What begins as a fun investigative challenge including the infamous Elevator Ritual quickly descends into a personal hell of true evil, begging the timely question: how far would you go to pursue internet fame?"
