‘Beware this camera... once you take it, it takes you.’
Polaroid is a 2017 supernatural American-Norwegian horror film directed by Lars Klevberg, based on his 2015 short of the same title (watch below). The screenplay was written by Blair Butler (Hell Fest; Slasher School TV series; America’s Next Top Zombie Idol).
High school loner Bird Fitcher stumbles upon a vintage Polaroid camera. She soon realises that the camera holds a terrible secret: whoever has their picture taken by it meets a tragic and violent end.
Bird and her friends must survive one more night as they race to solve the mystery of the paranormal Polaroid before it kills them all…
“It’s no better or worse than any other horror movie made out of attractive actors, routine scripting, and standard spooks a la The Bye Bye Man or Ouija. It may play like a TV movie of the week, but Polaroid at least possesses the visual polish of a palatably theatrical production.” Culture Crypt
The Dimension Films-Eldorado Film-Vertigo Entertainment co-production originally had a scheduled release date of August 25, 2017, but this was put back to November 22, 2017. The Weinstein Company/Dimension Films cancelled the release amidst the company restructuring and rebranding due to Harvey’s ongoing criminal and civil charges. Polaroid is finally released in select theaters and On-Demand on September 17, 2019.
