When two young filmmakers select a crazed conspiracy theorist as the subject of their new movie, they have no idea the terrifying peril they will put themselves in. When the man disappears without a trace, the filmmakers begin an obsessive quest to uncover the truth that will lead them to an ancient and dangerous secret society. A meticulously researched thriller based on real conspiracy theories, THE CONSPIRACY blurs the line between fact and fiction, news and propaganda. (c) Xlrator

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The Conspiracy does more with a found-footage conceit than any horror movie since The Blair Witch Project."
‑ Adam Nayman, Globe and Mail
"A satisfying found-footage spooker."
‑ Kim Newman, Empire Magazine
"The Conspiracy walks like a doc and talks like a doc, but don't be fooled; it's actually a clever piece of fiction. At least, given the subject matter, I hope that's all it is."
‑ Chris Knight, National Post
"Why do so many contemporary filmmakers use the well-worn device of found footage and documentary shooting style to make thrillers? Does The Blair Witch Project have a mysterious power over all of them?"
‑ Linda Barnard, Toronto Star
"As both a compelling examination of conspiracy theorists and a unique found footage film, The Conspiracy lays firm groundwork before delivering a tense, dynamic third act."
‑ Shaun Munro, What Culture
"Continually surprises and engages the viewer even when it's falling apart."
‑ Christopher Runyon, Movie Mezzanine
"Like any good conspiracy theorist (or perhaps Grand Master of the Universe), MacBride rewrites the cosmos, forcing us either to buy the particular reality that he's peddling, or to risk being cast as collusive shills or sacrificial 'sheeples'."
‑ Anton Bitel, Grolsch Film Works
