A routine traffic control becomes a horrifying supernatural nightmare in "Body Cam"

Don’t you love it when a thriller film gets a good dosage of supernatural madness, so what starts as a canonical flick becomes a horror experience? This is what happens in Body Cam (2020).

In the movie, Mary J. Blige, Oscar-nominated by her role in Mudbound (2017), plays law enforcement officer Renee. During a routine traffic stop that results in the unexplained, grisly death of her colleague, a cop she realizes footage of the incident will play for her eyes only. As the attacks mount, she races to understand the supernatural force behind them.

Body Cam (2020) has been directed by Malik Vitthal, a multi-awarded filmmaker thanks to his movie Imperial Dreams (2014). It is based on a story by Richmond Riedel, who has also been the co-writer of the screenplay together with Nicholas McCarthy, the guy behind the horror films The Pact (2012), At the Devil’s Door (2014), and The Prodigy (2019).

Together with Mary J. Blige, Body Cam (2020) is also starred by Anika Noni Rose, Nat Wolff, Theo Rossi, David Zayas, Demetrius Grosse, Sylvia Grace Crim, Ian Casselberry, Lara Grice, and Philip Fornah. The movie is rated R for bloody violence, grisly images, and language throughout.

Produced by Ace Entertainment and Paramount Players, and distributed by Paramount Pictures, Body Cam (2020) is already available on Video on Demand platforms since this week. Here you can watch its official trailer:
