“8ight After” is now available. TRUE TERROR caught on film!!
Crazy things happened and
Vincent Rocca documented all of it!!
A demonic ghost, a stalker, and a youtuber husband hungry for likes. How will she survive?
Every single word is true…
Out of the sleeping darkness, at eight minutes after one each morning, the terror begins. YouTube Vloggers Vince and Deanna Rocca have been inseparable since tenth grade. But thirty years together haven’t prepared them for the nightmare they unleash when a simple home renovation leads to the discovery of an innocent-looking puzzle box. A box that frees a power that will drag the couple into a horror they may not survive, forcing them to question everything they thought they believed about God and the evil that lingers after death.
Contained in the box is a necklace of a Portate cross-a cross hung at an angle. For some, it symbolizes taking up the cross to follow Jesus. But for others, the crooked talisman means something much more sinister: that faith has failed and Christianity no longer wields any power against the darkness. Deanna, a zoo veterinary technician with a deep love of animals, has always been an atheist, but her fascination with the charm leads her not only to a new interest in faith, but deep into a growing madness, filled with night terrors, sleep walking, and visions of ghosts. Is the cross a portal key to unspeakable acts from the past?
Using his skills as a reality television video editor, Vince sets up surveillance cameras around the house, but what they reveal only adds to the nightmare, launching him on a race to save the woman he loves. Stalked by both the living and the dead, by the time their story reaches its terrifying conclusion, the fate of Vince and Deanna will be determined by a single question: Is their love powerful enough to fend off the evil that’s determined to destroy them?
Based on actual events…
Eight After is the spellbinding true story of a house possessed by ghosts, haunted by psychic phenomena almost too terrible to describe. Assembled from acclaimed filmmaker/editor Vincent Rocca’s contemporaneous diary notes and surveillance footage, this movie is a chilling mystery that brilliantly blends supernatural horror and psychological suspense, reminiscent of The Conjuring, Stir of Echos, and William Peter Blatty’s The Exorcist.
EVIL MAY BE UNLEASHED WHEN 8ight After STREAMS INTO YOUR HOME.
Los Angeles, CA, (September 9, 2020) – When Deanna Rocca discovered a Portate cross hidden in the wall of her Southern California home, she wasn’t prepared for the horror it would unleash. The angled (portate) cross was locked in a puzzle box and concealed inside the wall. Thinking the treasure was a fortunate find, she started wearing the cross, but it soon began to consume her. “Looking back, there were many signs that something was wrong,” remembers her husband, Vincent Rocca, “but it wasn’t until I saw a shadow sweep across the door on our security cameras that I really realized something was happening.” Vincent began monitoring those security cameras, and eventually compiled them into a movie.
Vincent is a Reality Television Editor, Deanna is a Zoo Vet Tech and together they make VLOG videos for their youtube channel. The couple are High School Sweethearts and have been together for over 30 years and married for 21.
“She is my world, the most important thing to me, losing her terrifies me. in all our 30 years, I’ve never seen her act like that,” said Vincent.
After combing through thousands of hours of security camera footage and combining it with talking vlog footage Vincent believes he’s created the first ever Reality Movie. “It’s a documentary with the touches of a film, like sound design and score. I edited 8ight After just as I would have cut an episode of Hell’s kitchen, complete with jokes, but our villain is more frightening than Gordan Ramsey.” explained Vincent. “Reality Television is a stylized documentary. This is just that, except a movie, a Reality Movie.” 8ight After is unique in that it doesn’t use interviews to move the story along, but instead uses first person VLOG narration. It could also possibly be the first full length feature VLOG movie.
Since 8ight After grew organically out of VLOGS and surveillance footage, the cost of production was zero. The footage was just sitting waiting to be assembled. Vincent elaborated, “I literally did everything on “8ight After” the editing, color correction, sound mix and score. I took it on as a personal challenge. Yes, it does look a lot like Paranormal Activity. Chalk that up to a one man post production with a lack of creativity. Green night shot footage just doesn’t look good in green, or red, but blue seems to work. I mean, even Survivor uses blue, but when combined with security footage of two people sleeping, of course its going to have that Paranormal Activity vibe.”
At Midnight, October 15, “8ight After” will be available to own in high definition from select digital retailers. A book version compiled from Vincent’s journals is available now on Amazon.
