Meet Me in Montauk

According to IndieScene, it looks like this genre may have started around 1998 with the Blair Witch site fueling the buzz generated by word-of-mouth. More recently, fake company websites linked to scripts have been cropping up. Indie film examples in '04 are Lacuna, Inc., the shady medical outfit that erases memories in Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, and the ersatz Wal*Mart-esque Huckabees and The Open Spaces Coalition for the forthcoming I ♥ Huckabees.
