  1. The Tunnel, a long-awaited horror movie, is coming to a BitTorrent tracker near you. Set in the abandoned tunnels under Sydney, Australia, the movie will get its world premiere online for free via BitTorrent on May 19, 2011.

    The plan is likely as follows:

    1.) Show the industry is willing to try new things by releasing a torrent and DVDs
    2.) Make sure that movie doesn't show in theatres and goes straight to DVD so no one knows about it
    3.) Make sure that movie is a BAD movie
    4.) Blame the lack of DVD sales on free-loading downloaders
    5.) More evidence that bittorrent is ruining their business
     
  5. A film that cost $1,000 to make and boring, will be free??

    Cant wait......

    Better than a letter from your IP, and the likelihood of making more money off of IP fines that the movie cost. :haha:

    It looks like a mix between Blair Witch and REC. Not all that original really.

    I'd go just to see the tunnels under Sydney. Has anyone made a movie about giant plastic alligator prompts under New York?
