In the meantime: Is this a movie you’d want to see? Tell us in the comments.
Elevator Pitch: A group of hikers on the Appalachian Trail stumbles across an ancient secret that threatens their survival.
About the Production: If you’ve ever been hiking or camping alone, far away from civilization, you know how creepy things can get. That was my inspiration for writing "Beacon Point." My goal was to take these experiences and channel them into a fresh story. I wanted to write a horror-thriller screenplay that would break many of the cliches and imagery that so many movies have rehashed. For example, our protagonist, or hero, is a woman. "Beacon Point" melds American Indian legends and an ominous and remote area of the Great Smoky Mountains to create the perfect environment for our story.
Current Status: Post-production. All that's left is music, visual FX and coloring. Release date is September 2014
