‘Evil lurks in the shadows’
Stoker Hills is a 2021 American mystery horror film about three students filming a horror movie who stumble upon something much worse. Their only hope for survival is two detectives who find the camera that was left behind.
Directed by Benjamin Louis from a screenplay written by Jonah Kuehner. Produced by Timothy Christian (Z for Zachariah) and Rab Butler.
Three college students set out to film a horror movie for their final class project, but during filming, something goes terribly wrong. They suddenly find themselves in a nightmare worse than they could have written. Luckily, some of the footage of their abduction is captured on a camera that is later found by two detectives.
It’s now a race against time as the detectives must use clues in the video to rescue the students and uncover the identity of their kidnapper. As the detectives get closer to their location, they find themselves in the middle of a dense forest on the outskirts of Stoker Hills, and what they uncover is far worse than anything the town has ever seen…
“Stoker Hills starts off strong but as the film progresses further, it starts to fizzle out a bit, especially due to unnecessary dialogue between characters that don’t add anything to the story. However, it’s a good watch if you’re in the mood for something uncomplicated.” Leisure Byte
“Cinematographer John Orphan does a great job, bringing out every bit of atmosphere in the abandoned industrial buildings and dark, fog-enshrouded forest that makes up much of Stoker Hill’s setting. It looks great and along with the score by Roc Chen (The Wandering Earth) adds a lot to Stoker Hills’ effectiveness, especially in the tense final act. An offbeat and enjoyable mix of found footage and conventional footage as well as a mix of horror, thriller and police procedural…” Voices from the Balcony
