Check This Out: 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 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.
