Description :  La troupe del nuovo film horror sull'assassino della videocamera (erede dell'<i>Occhio che uccide</i> di Michael Powell) non immagina certo le conseguenze che il progetto avrà in futuro. La sceneggiatura è pronta, il protagonista è un killer disumano che filma le sue vittime mentre le elimina, ma le cose non vanno per il verso giusto e il film non verrà realizzato. Qualche anno dopo, tuttavia, qualcuno si assume il compito di "girarlo" nella realtà e un assassino spietato comincia a uccidere usando la stessa tecnica. Un video dopo l'altro, l'esecutore registra fedelmente il sangue e il terrore delle vittime: la scena si tinge di rosso, profondo rosso, mentre l'incubo comincia, proprio perché questo non è un film...
