From writers-directors-stars Clif Prowse and Derek Lee comes the horror-thriller Afflicted, set to play at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival’s Midnight Madness. The film centers on best friends Clif and Derek whose globe-trotting adventure is interrupted when one of them comes down with a strange affliction that’s slowly taking over his mind and body. Their video travel log becomes the only way they can document the strange event and their only hope to make it home alive.

Here’s the official synopsis for Afflicted, followed by the poster:
Best Friends Derek and Clif set out on a trip of lifetime. Their plan – travel to the ends of the earth, see the world, and live life to the fullest. But the trip soon takes a dark and bloody turn. Just days in, one of the men shows signs of a mysterious affliction which gradually takes over his entire body and being. Now, thousands of miles from home, in a foreign land, they must race to uncover the source before it consumes him completely. Footage meant to be travel memories may now become evidence of one of the most shocking discoveries ever captured on film…and perhaps will be their only postcard home.
