EXCL Images: Snowbound Creature Feature, “BLOOD GLACIER”Movies/TV,News Samuel Zimmerman
Out this Friday on VOD and in select theaters via IFC Midnight is Marvin Kren’s snowbound creature feature, BLOOD GLACIER (aka The Station). Clearly in the vein of the Antarctic-set John Carpenter classic THE THING, BLOOD GLACIER manages to be more than the sum of its influence, and ends up altogether an atmospheric, pulpy and very fun mash of practical, hybrid animal monsters. Fango has two exclusive images to share from the film, in anticipation of its debut.
In BLOOD GLACIER, Janek is a technician on a climate observation station high up in the German Alps, one of a team of scientists preparing their outpost for visit from the Environment Minister. Their routine is interrupted by a strange discovery; a red liquid pouring from a nearby glacier, melted free from the ice crust that is shrinking with climate change. When the ‘glacier blood‘ comes in contact with the local wildlife, it causes changes that are at first curious, then horrifying. Soon Janek and his team have their hands full defending themselves and the station against a growing horde of biological monstrosities. Using every tool at their disposal they must learn to work together to survive the onslaught.
BLOOD GLACIER is on VOD and in theaters this Friday, May 2. For more, keep an eye on Fango for our review and chat with director Kren this week.
