D.J. Caruso Directs “First Interactive Social Horror Film Experience” Starring Emmy Rossum

by Dan Koelsch

How would you like to save the beautiful Emmy Rossum from a kidnapper? You will get that chance soon thanks to a unique project titled Inside. Described as the “first interactive social horror film experience”, you affect the plot and interact with the characters using social media. You can even win a cameo in the live event. Get more details after the break.

The interactive film, presented by Intel and Toshiba, is directed by D.J. Caruso (Disturbia, Eagle Eye) and stars Rossum as the victim of a kidnapper. In order to escape her room, she must use her Toshiba Satellite P755 laptop. Details on how the interactive part of things is vague, but once the film goes live on July 25th at 11:00 AM PST (2:00 PM EST), you can follow along and participate through Facebook, YouTube and Twitter. There is also an open casting call where you can be part of the film by submitting a video of yourself. Get the full details on the film’s official website.

I’ve come across a few of these attempts to make interactive movies on the web, and while the idea is very intriguing, I have rarely seen them live up to the potential. This has a shot, however, considering it has a big sponsorship behind it, as well as A-list talent. I’ll definitely be tuning in to see how it goes. Check out the official trailer below and let us know what you think of Inside.
