Adaptation Displacement: Incident in Lake County is a remake of The McPherson Tape, an indie horror film by the same director which saw a limited release in 1989.
The 1989 original is actually far more chilling, and frankly starkly realistic, than the remake, even excluding the bad TV Cut. The crudity of the camcorder footage is only too believable for going on 25 years ago.
The film is regularly repeated in the UK, particularly on Sky Movies Horror - there's talking heads, but thankfully no narmy music. The last scene is particularly terrifying because there is no music, one can only imagine how it would be ruined by a soundtrack.
