Home movies usually contain scenes of intimate happiness, but they can also be witness to the purest horror. And that’s precisely the case with 1974, where a bunch of 8mm tapes reveal the tragic fate of a newlywed couple that disappears in Mexico in the mid-seventies. A found footage film with a grainy texture and an unsettling soundtrack.
