The Unexplained Disappearance of Karla Marks by director Kurtis Spieler (Sheep Skin) tackles a number of the most popular horror sub-genres from both the large and small screen: the “found footage” film (made famous by The Blair Witch Project), the “haunting docudrama”(Paranormal Witness) and the paranormal investigative program (Ghost Adventures, Ghost Hunters). All three sub-genres are immensely popular with horror fans, but combining all three of these types of programs in one film is no easy task.
