Chiller original productions are certainly a mixed bag. Some have been decent, some just awful. However, the fact that Chiller keeps churning original movies productions out is a positive sign that they will keep making a go at it hoping to make some good quality horror movies. With that, the latest original production is officially under way….it’s titled BENEATH and the synopsis is as follows:
Chiller’s original movie Beneath has commenced production in Oxford, CT with an eye towards a Spring 2013 premiere. Beneath stars Danny Zovatto (Innocence), Bonnie Dennison (Stake Land, Third Watch), Chris Conroy (Sorority Row), Jonny Orsini (Imogene), Griffin Newman (Political Animals) and Mackenzie Rosman (7th Heaven). Also joining the cast is Emmy-nominee Mark Margolis (Breaking Bad) as Mr. Parks.
When a group of young friends commemorating their high school graduation take a trip to the remote Black Lake, their celebration turns into a nightmare with the sudden appearance of a bloodthirsty, underwater predator. Stuck in a leaking boat with no oars, the teens face the ultimate tests of friendship and sacrifice during a terror-stricken fight for survival.
Beneath is written by Tony Daniel and Brian D. Smith, and directed by horror icon Larry Fessenden (The Last Winter, Habit). Produced by Fessenden and Peter Phok for Glass Eye Pix (Stake Land, The Innkeepers, I Sell The Dead).
