Larry Fessenden’s “BENEATH” to World Premiere at Stanley Festival; First PicMovies/TV,News Samuel Zimmerman
This Thursday, May 2, the intensely cool inaugural Stanley Film Festival—held at Estes Park, Colorado’s Stanley Hotel, that which served as inspiration for THE SHINING—gets underway, and in addition to a stellar lineup of recent festival favorites and highly anticipated horror, will also host the world premiere of the latest from indie horror master Larry Fessenden (HABIT, THE LAST WINTER).
Produced in conjunction with Fessenden’s Glass Eye Pix and Chiller TV (and set to premiere there later this year), BENEATH finds “a monstrous morality tale where a bloodthirsty, underwater predator stalks a group of teens trapped on a leaking boat in the middle of a lake, and the friends must choose between loyalty and survival.”
Fango was on set of BENEATH late last summer and you can look for that report in an upcoming issue (and see what Fessenden already had to tell us about the film here). For more on the Stanley Film Festival, whose great lineup includes ALL THE BOYS LOVE MANDY LANE, HERE COMES THE DEVIL, SIGHTSEERS, VANISHING WAVES, V/H/S/2, MANIAC and Japanese oddity HENGE, head to its official site. If you can make it, I am the most jealous.
