Teaser Poster for Kaare Andrews' Altitude

Every once in a while I come across something so damn cool, I just have to feature it, even though I don't know much about it. ShockTillYouDrop gets the credit on this one, though, as I first found out about Kaare Andrews' project Altitude and this teaser poster through them. The plot of Altitude is described as: "After a mysterious malfunction sends their small plane climbing out of control, a rookie pilot and her four teenage friends find themselves in a showdown with a malevolent supernatural force." I'm hoping that this is exactly what it sounds like - a supernatural thriller set almost entirely in the air. Anyone interested?

Altitude PosterAltitude stars "90210" and The Haunting of Molly Hartley hottie Jessica Lowndes, who spoke previously with STYD about the project. "The director, Kaare Andrews, is amazing. He's this terrific comic book artist and writer. He's worked for Marvel, so visually it'll be incredible. I've seen some of his short films, so I believe in him." That poster, as seen to the right, comes from the website for the Escape Factory, the production company behind the project. The tag line at the top of the poster reads: "Lost in a Storm… Trapped in a Climb… Things Are About to Get Worse."

While that synopsis we posted above was already enough to convince me to keep an eye on this, Lowndes adds a bit more mystery and intrigue to the story. "I play a student on her way to getting her pilot's license and I take my friends to a concert," Lowndes told STYD a few weeks ago. "As I'm taking off, there's a technical malfunction and everything goes wrong. You don't know if there's something wrong with the plane, if there's something out there. It's pretty intense." She continues, "it's going to be crazy because it feels like a thriller, then it turns sci-fi, then horror. It's a mix of everything." I'm definitely loving the sound of this.

Arclight Films was present at the American Film Market last year trying to find a buyer for Altitude, but I don't think they were successful. The film is currently shooting in Vancouver. We'll definitely let you know when we have more info on this, and if any photos or a trailer show up online anytime soon.

    Nice poster, interesting concept. I'm excited to learn more about this. And yes, it would be sweet if there was a cthulhu connection.
  • chris
    I think 'The Langoliers' was pretty good for a plane based horror sci fi (people land from a plane trip and everyone else has been eaten by interdimensional teeth)
  • solider
    Hahaha, #4, that's EXACTLY how I felt too!
  • MonkeyMowse
    Looks gangsta.

  • Hey Ya
    Nice poster, cheesy plot. I may see it, pending the job situation. I just love seeing movies.
  • Unyverse
    Sounds like an extra long episode of Supernatural. Although in Supernatural the plot was a little different, they did base the 42 minute episode almost all in the air, so it's a meh from me
  • Salber on Cinema
    SQUIDS ON A PLANE!!!!! Cool poster, but then THE DAY THE EARTH STOOD STILL remake has a cool poster also and that was the only good thing about the movie. striaght to video.
  • Goudos
    I'll give it a go
  • Holy crap was The Day The Earth Stood Still (2008) AWFUL! Reeves plays an omniscient but thick skulled alien. Professor Barnhardt: Well that's where we are. You say we're on the brink of destruction and you're right. But it's only on the brink that people find the will to change. Only at the precipice do we evolve. This is our moment. Don't take it from us, we are close to an answer. Klattu: Duh... whoa. My brilliant alien civilization never thought of that.
  • Bry from Chi
    Agree with #4 too..I was intrigued..then the kids. I love kids movies..but dang..I was hoping for more meatier stuff for this monster to swallow. :) Yet..I still may check it out.I have to see.
  • Darrin
