I think this may be a first – I can’t think of another film to have ever gone here. A film about a woman trapped under an ice-covered lake as a madman – a serial killer – stalks her from above. You want original? Here ya go. Check out The Dark Below.
Got a trailer to show you – kind of digging the idea of this one.
Here’s the story outline:
“Douglas Schulze (MIMESIS, DARK FIELDS) brings us his fourth and most daring film. THE DARK BELOW is a tense, fear driven film that utilizes minimal dialog to tell the story of a woman (Lauren Mae Shafer) struggling for survival beneath a frozen lake while a serial killer (David G.B. Brown) stalks her from the surface.
With its bone-chilling soundtrack by multiplatinum recording artist Eric Bobo (Cypress Hill, The Beastie Boys) and a searing supporting performance by Veronica Cartwirght (ALIEN, 24: LEGACY), THE DARK BELOW, which played several high profile genre film festivals”
Lauren Mae Shafer, David G.B. Brown, and Veronica Cartwright all lend their ample talents.
Can’t lie – I’m intrigued with this one and the good news is, I don’t have to wait long. This one hits US theaters on March 10th – got a feeling it’s going to be a pretty limited release but keep your eyes open and if it opens around you – give it a whirl.
