Description: Anna, a mainstream TV star, —believing she is responding to the wish of an illustrious filmmaker with whom she dreams of filming— accepts the invitation of her “fan club” to spend a weekend with them. Very quickly, this moment will turn into a nightmare. She is in fact kidnapped by border-line admirers who have set out to revive her career through the emotions she has made them feel.

But while we think of a staging of psychopaths, the reality is more complex. The fans are actually close to the victims of an accident that the actress caused at the beginning of her career, and are asking for justice. But revenge is perhaps not their main driving force. Fan Club is one of the first VR feature-length film (55′) ever. This film is a reflection on the weight of memory and resilience, in the form of a psychedelic thriller.

Review: FAN CLUB’s claim to fame is that it is the longest VR cinematic experience you can download and at 55 minutes run-time it most certainly is that. Sadly not many of those 55 minutes are even slightly interesting and at times it was more of an art project than anything slightly watchable. I get the feeling that this might be a matter of taste and that someone else will enjoy this. That person wasn’t me. The quality of the production was too low, the quality of the 360 video was too low and the whole thing went on too long. It’s a good effort I suppose and a lot of work clearly went into this, but all that work and effort was missed on me.
