Fantasia 2014 exclusive: New poster for Frontières fright film “MARK OF KANE”
Among the selections in the Off-Frontières section of the Frontières International Co-Production Market at this year’s Fantasia festival is MARK OF KANE, a shocker feature based on best-selling author Michael Prescott’s novel KANE. We’ve got two new posters for the project to share, including an exclusive.
MARK OF KANE, which we first told you about here, is the latest project from Canadian filmmaker Justin McConnell of THE COLLAPSED. McConnell adapted Prescott’s book (first published under the name Douglas Borton, and recently reissued as an e-book) with Dread Central writer Serena Whitney, and the two are producing with Avi Federgreen. Adam Mason and George Mihalka, directors of BROKEN and the original MY BLOODY VALENTINE respectively, are consulting producers; a director has yet to be selected. The synopsis:
“Kane is a force of nature. Walking out of the desert into the dying town of Tuskett, which only 23 people still call home, he has only one purpose: to kill every resident. Relentless, stealthy, and without mercy, Kane won’t stop until every last man, woman and child is nothing but a memory. Soon the surviving townspeople must band together to fight this seemingly-unstoppable evil, or die trying. Brutal, action-packed, and most importantly, character-driven, MARK OF KANE is a thrilling story of survival at any cost.”
MARK OF KANE is one of a slew of genre projects being presented to potential backers at Frontières, which takes place July 24-27 during Fantasia, which runs July 17-August 5. For more on the festival, see its official website, and visit MARK OF KANE’s homepage and Facebook page.
