"Sickhouse" is a found footage horror movie written and directed by Hannah Macpherson. The film takes the form of a series of Snapchat videos shot over a 48 hour period where a group of friends heads out into the wilderness in search of a rumored haunted house known as Sickhouse. For the uninitiated, the fundamental premise behind Snapchat is the posting of temporary videos taken by mobile devices which are permanently deleted immediately after first viewing. Snapchat stories, featured in Sickhouse, are videos which remain online for 24 hours before self-destructing—more on this later.
