Eco-Horror Film To Debut At Toronto Film Festival
No, it doesn’t star Al Gore–but the timing after a hit like An Inconvenient Truth is certainly good. New York filmmaker, Larry Fessenden, is about to release an eco-horror film that hits hard at the oil industry. It’s titled The Last Winter. From the article,
“His new film’s “Alien”-style setup tracks eight men building oil drill sites in Alaska’s Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, only to succumb to ‘a slow descent into an unknowable fear,’ climaxing with a showdown between the group’s pro-oil and environmentalist leaders.”
All I want to know is if the Alien-presence turns out to be Alaskan Senator Ted Stevens. Now that would be frightening–especially if it turns out he can actually make sense. There’s nothing more scary than a Ted Stevens that people can actually understand. Hit the jump for more info on the new film or visit the site for a sneak peek behind the scenes.
