"I start to have some second thoughts about whether or not I should do this..." There is no turning back in the first official trailer for The Blackout Experiments documentary, hitting select theaters and VOD on July 22nd from Gravitas Ventures:

Synopsis: "The most extreme immersive horror experience in America is called Blackout. Not for the faint of heart, it is a terrifying, psycho-sexual thrill-ride designed to play on our deepest psychological fears. Rich Fox's innovative horror documentary follows a group of friends whose experience with Blackout becomes deeply personal, developing into an obsession that hijacks their lives and blurs the line between reality and paranoid fantasy. Revealing an underbelly of private rituals and personal nightmares with shocking footage that is 100% real, THE BLACKOUT EXPERIMENTS is the story of our collective obsession with the darkness inside us."

The Blackout Experiments was directed by Rich Fox and produced by Kris Curry. In case you missed them, check out Heather's positive Sundance review of The Blackout Experiments and her interview with director Fox and producer Curry:
