Polaroid is an upcoming American supernatural horror film directed by Lars Klevberg, based on his 2015 short film of the same name.


It follows high school loner Bird Fitcher who has no idea what dark secrets are tied to the vintage Polaroid camera she stumbles upon, but it does not take long to discover that those who have their picture taken meet a tragic ending.



Dimension Films was announced to adapt the 2014 short film Polaroid, written and directed by Norwegian director Lars Klevberg. Chris Bender, Jake Weiner and Jake Wagner will produce in Benderspink, Roy Lee in Vertigo and Petter Onstad Løkke and John Einar Hagen in Eldorado Film, which produced the short film with Klevberg in Norway.[citation needed]


Principal photography began in Halifax, Nova Scotia, on March 9, 2017.[1]


The film was originally scheduled to be released on August 25, 2017.[2] It was pushed back from this original release date to December 1, 2017, before being pushed up to November 22, 2017.[3] It was then pulled from the schedule, with plans to release the film in 2018.[4]

In October 2018, Lantern Entertainment, which acquired The Weinstein Company's assets through its bankruptcy, and 13 Films, an international distribution and finance company, struck a deal to co-distribute the film internationally.[5]
