However, the director Wilson Wyler Concannon and the movie vanished many years ago and there is no available print. His research is affecting his relationship with his girlfriend Serina that is needy and feels neglected.

The woman tells that the movie might be in her father's house in the middle of the woods, and Tyler decides to travel to the spot with Alexa, Serina and their friend Lalo. Along their journey, Tyler films and interviews some locals. During the night, they are attacked by the rednecks, but they are saved by Babyface that kills the assaulters and is controlled by Alexa that runs away from him.

You have one message.

Tyler, what's up?

This is Astor.

So I found ALexa Concannon

for Your project.

She works at the Crimson Kitty

out on route 8.

Call me

and I'll give you the details.


When night falls, the terror begins.

They thought

it was just a Legend.

They thought the woods were safe.

Their only warning

was a death rattle.

What was that?

From the master

of horror, Wilson Wyler Concannon.

Witness the birth of a madman.

His name is Babyface.

His game is death.

When night falls,

The Hills Run Red.

If You hear his rattle,

it's already too late.

Hey, sweetie.

Do you know what time it is?

It's late. What're you doing up?

- Mm, where's Lalo?

- Asleep in his lair.

I'm naked under this.

Are you gonna spend the rest

of the night with that? Or with me?

Just a little bit longer.

I promise.

Not again.

I guess

I'll just go back to bed. Alone.

In the beginning, the Lord said,

"Let there be Light".

And there was light

and it was good.

And then, man said,

"Let there be celluloid".

Celluloid made film

and film shows the world...

what it doesn't wanna see.

So I had to ask myself...

Why this movie?...

I mean' is it just one

merciless murder after another?

What did people see in it

that was so disturbing?

That's what I wanna find out.

Soon as he's finished jerking off

over the kill scenes.

- Goddamn it.

- I can hear through the walls.

- Get your giant nose out of my shot.

- It's just video blogging.

- I was in the moment.

- Whatever.

- Back away.

- Come on, we're gonna be late.

Know what you're gonna

get out of this?

Uh, yeah'

a thousand e-mails telling me...

The Hills Run Red is

a Spaghetti Western made in 1966.

Actual title, River of Dollars.

- See? I love that you know that.

- That's right.

But why this movie, Tyler?

It's just another '80s splatter-fest.

Think of the mystery

surrounding it.

I mean, no movie just vanishes

without a trace.

No prints.

Just some stills and a trailer.

That's pure, uncensored,

unfiltered unfucked-with cinema...

that only a handful of people

got to see. Why?

- Hi.

- Guy made one movie.

Nobody gave a sh*t.

End of story.

- Two popcorns' please.

- 20 years ago nobody gave a sh*t.

- Tyler, nobody gives a sh*t now.

- Concannon was doing something.

Something that scared people enough

to bury it. Don't you wanna know what?

Hey, look, who's to say

it shouldn't stay buried?

- F*** off.

- Heh, heh.

Film speaks a language

and therefore has a grammar...

that is incomprehensible to the

cinematic illiterate... unquote.

- Heh. You got it bad, don't you?

- Wilson Wyler Concannon said that.

Oh, God' he's terminal folks.

He's using all three names.

No, no, the... Splices.

A single cut in the wrong place

can kill you...

- Dude, what does that even mean?

- It's genius.

I think the worLd is crazy.

I think it takes a certain amount of

crazy to show the world who they are.


you're just bull shitting them.

This thing is only famous

because it's so obscure.

See, now you understand. It's time

to prove or disprove the legend.

I'm gonna find it, rediscover it and

do a documentary on the whole history.

Right, right, right.

Easier said than done.

The guy disappeared, what,

Not completely.

The little girl from the movie.

So what?

That's Concannon's daughter.

Alexa. His only known child.

- How'd you find her?

- Astor tracked her down.

She's only 20 minutes

outside the city.

- Ugh. Astor?

- Yeah.

And, what? She's just gonna hand you

all this forbidden knowledge?

- It might take a little convincing.
