In 1993, inspired by the success of US indie features such as El Mariachi, Scottish Writer-Director Bruce Naughton was keen to make a straight to video feature that would also have enough commercial edge to make some money.

Internet horror is big business right now, but for every Unfriended: Dark Web there’s a…Smiley. Death of a Vlogger, the third feature from Scottish writer-director (and star, editor, and producer — well, you get the picture) Graham Hughes, falls somewhere in...
