‘Some cases should stay cold’
The Lost Footage of Leah Sullivan is a 2019 American found-footage about the contents of an unedited memory card. The subject is Leah’s school project about the infamous Mulcahy Massacre.
Directed by Burt Grinstead from a screenplay co-written by Anna Stromberg (they both also star), based on a story by Grinstead and Rob Runyeon, the Blanket Fort Entertainment production also features David Nash, Maureen Keiller, Denise Walker, Jimmy Driscoll, and Matthew Pelieci.
A young journalism student decides to return to her hometown to investigate a brutal murder that took place 30 years prior. Without much hope of finding any real answers, she interviews a series of local characters, all of whom leave their own bewildering take on the legendary Mulcahy Murders in her student film.
As the facts unravel, she begins to realize that this cold case murder, may not be so cold after all.
Along with the help of the handsome deputy police officer, Patrick Rooke, she begins to uncover the horrifying truth of what really happened that night thirty years ago. As she gets closer to discovering the truth, she edges even closer to her own demise. Will her blind ambition overtake her desire to survive?
