Brace yourselves for “the first ever feature-length horror film to be shot entirely on an iPhone” (it says here, although we seem to recall James Cullen Bressack’s To Jennifer being shot on an iPhone 5 around the same time) when Hooked Up (2013) arrives on UK DVD on April 27, courtesy of Signature Entertainment.
The horrors of Hooked Up are delivered through the iPhones of Tonio (Jonah Ehrenreich) and Peter (Stephen Ohl), two young Americans who travel to Barcelona to party and meet women. When Tonio and Peter befriend the flirtatious Noemi and Katia on their first night out partying, they escort them back to the house where things take an unexpected turn. The boys become trapped in the house and soon realise that the girls have a very different kind of party in mind – one the guests don’t get to leave. Yep, it’s a found footage film, written and directed by Pablo Larcuen, and executive produced by Orphan and Non-Stop director Jaume Collet-Serra.
