An ambitious vlogger experiences the dark side of the internet when his latest video, which features an alleged haunting, goes viral. A hit at London’s FrightFest film festival and soon to be shown at Frightfest Glasgow, Death of a Vlogger is the feature debut from writer-director Graham Hughes.
Combining found footage, archive materials, talking head interviews, and ripped youtube videos, Death of a Vlogger is a mockumentary horror that explores the dark side of the internet.
When Graham, a YouTube vlogger, finds that his comedy sketches aren't pulling in the followers, he decides to up his game. Suddenly, he rises to fame when he captures a paranormal incident live for his viewers to see.
Graham is determined to continue documenting his haunting, bringing with him a legion of fans, who are willing to believe anything. But with people trying to debunk his videos, Graham starts getting nervous about the prospect of something worse than any ghost...an internet shaming.
