Halloween is coming up, which means trick or treating and scary movies featuring supernatural threats, unknown fears and, of course, frightening creatures. Next month, a new monster film will hit the 2016 American Film Market in Santa Monica, courtesy of High Octane Pictures: “Gremlin,” which features an original story directed by an Emmy Award winner and top-of-the-line computer generated effects.
The film follows Adam Thatcher, still reeling from the death of his son, who receives a mysterious box from a relative containing a creature that will brutally kill everyone he cares about. The only way to release himself from the curse is to give the box to someone else he loves, only continuing the circulation of evil. As the timer on the box counts down, Adam must decide whether to save his family or unleash the monster onto humanity. It stars Adam Hampton (“The Unusual Calling of Charlie Christmas”), Kristy K. Boone (“Suedehead”), Catcher Stair (“The Foreverlands”), Katie Burgess (“Two Secrets”), Mike Waugh (“Army of Frankensteins”) and Caleb Milby (“Monday at 11:01 A.M.”). Check out the exclusive trailer and poster below.
The film is directed by Ryan Bellgardt, who previously wrote and directed “Army of Frankensteins,” about an army of Frankensteins from different parallel universe sent back in time to the Civil War. He won an Arts/Entertainment Program/Special Emmy in 2011.
