Phasmophobia | Into the Darkness

Phasmophobia is a ghost hunting video game that you can find on Steam; a digital game distribution platform. The objective of Phasmophobia is not to capture the ghost, but to locate it in the environment you're in, discover what type of ghost you're dealing with by detecting its behavior/actions/movement, and report it in a journal you're given at the beginning of the game. In this trailer, we've recreated the same experience you'd witness playing Phasmophobia in a 1 minute and 30-second trailer.

Director Statement

Phasmophobia | Into the Darkness is a trailer entirely based on the video game known as Phasmophobia. I became highly addicted to playing the video game and had this crazy idea of creating a trailer out of it. I quickly found actors, gathered people, and quickly started rehearsing for every scene. The trailer went above my expectations and is something that I'm truly proud of to submit to some competitions, and something truly incredible to look back at when I graduate high school.
