The trailer looks great! I can see this film going viral and becoming as big as 'Paranormal Activity' due to the 'inspired by real events' angle. Secret societies, banksters, 9/11, etc.. something for everyone! It's already getting some great coverage and the trailer on YouTube has over 30k hits and continues to increase.
Hopefully it blows up, gets distribution and hits the screens in every major North American city!

This transforms The Conspiracy from just another found-footage experience into a puzzle box, a film that begs to be dissected and obsessed over. And that's why what MacBride has accomplished here is so brilliant and such a massive step forward for films of this type. The use of found footage here isn't a mere stylistic choice -- it informs the movie's thematic core. By presenting this movie as "truth" and then slowly revealing that someone behind the scenes is obscuring it from us, we understand the obsession and the frustration that drives the characters in the movie. We know why they build timelines on their walls and draw connections between the bombing of Peal Harbor and the Kennedy assassination. We know what it feels like to know that the truth is out there and that someone doesn't want you to have access to it. For a genre that has always been about POV, The Conspiracy is the first found-footage movie to truly put you in the shoes of its characters.

Hey guys, I just watched this one on Netflix (or Itunes, I forget), and while it's got a lot of drama and whatnot, it really gets a lot of the message through about the government and Bilderberg, and Mithraic mysteries, and the ending was truly awesome. Totally worth your while (4/5).
