"The Outwaters" Is Causing Trauma To Audience Members

On February 9, 2023, a new horror movie was released to select United States theaters, traumatizing audience members—claims of “nightmares” and people going mid-film to throw up in the bathroom. 


The film's name is “The Outwaters,” a found-footage horror film. It takes place in the Mojave desert and follows a group of young-adult friends as they attempt to film a documentary. As the friends make their way through the desert, the film picks up and turns into “a mind-bending trip through terror” as they encounter “unexplained sounds, vibrations, and unnatural animal behavior.”


It opens with a title screen that describes that the footage the audience is about to see was recorded by different friend group members and was found in the desert by another man hiking. It was directed and written by one of the actors, Robbie Banfitch, from one of the most famous found-footage films of all time, “The Blair Witch Project.” 


Audience and critic reviews have been mixed, but a general consensus has been reached that it is one of the most terrifying films in recent history. Many audience members took to their phones after the film was over to give their reviews. 


Accounts of people passing out and having panic attacks due to a scary film have not been reported since the release of “The Exorcist” in 1973. 


One user tweeted, “I quite literally was trembling in multiple parts. The sound is absolutely HELLISH.” Another tweet said “the last half of #TheOutwaters felt like panic. I think I’m sleeping with the lights on. Truly terrifying movie.” 


The Outwaters was officially released on February 9, 2023, but it premiered at the 2022 Cannes Film Festival along with another horror film called “Crimes of the Future.”


Crimes of the Future was said to have also been a terrifying film that left the audience shocked and horrified. Some even left the movie after only five minutes, reportedly due to a scene involving the main character licking a flesh wound. 


Alongside Crimes of the Future and The Outwaters, another film was released earlier this year called “Terrifer 2” which also caused distress among audience members. Terrifer 2 is the sequel to “Terrifer,” which follows a killer clown named Art as he stalks and murders young wome
