Trailer: “TREEHOUSE,” An Abduction Thriller from the director of “ZOMBIE DIARIES”
UK filmmaker Michael Bartlett, best known for ZOMBIE DIARIES and ZOMBIE DIARIES 2 has turned his eye to an Americana-infused aesthetic with TREEHOUSE, an alien abduction thriller with a golden, ethereal and eventually eerie look.
In TREEHOUSE, two adolescent boys stumble upon the titular structure where they find a girl believed to have gone missing. There, sunny youth seems to confront supernatural threat, culminating in something of a striking image. There have been a few films in recent years that aim to marry the 80s Amblin wonder with severe danger. Unfortunately, neither SUPER 8, DARK SKIES or UNDER THE BED were wholly successful in their approach.
Will TREEHOUSE nail it? No word on release just yet, but keep an eye on Fango. [STYD]
