Watch: First Trailer for Larry Fessenden's Rowboat Horror 'Beneath'
"We're going to die if we do nothing." How about a bit of wacky, contained horror to kick off the week. Our friends at horror site Bloody-Disgusting found the trailer for a film called Beneath, the latest from actor-turned-filmmaker Larry Fessenden. The contained horror-thriller involves a concept with five high school friends trapped on a rowboat in the middle of a lake infested by a giant man-eating fish. If you think this looks straight-to-TV quality, that's because it pretty much is, as it's being released by Chiller TV. It doesn't look that great, but horror fans may get a kick out of the crazy concept and gore-on-a-boat idea. Have fun!
Here's the first official trailer for Larry Fessenden's Beneath, first found via Bloody-Disgusting:
When a bloodthirsty, underwater predator leaves a group of teens trapped on a leaking boat in the middle of a lake, the high school friends must choose between loyalty and survival in this monstrous morality tale.
Beneath is directed by American horror actor-writer-producer-filmmaker Larry Fessenden, director of the films Habit, Wendigo and The Last Winter most recently. The screenplay was written by Tony Daniel & Brian D. Smith. The film just premiered at the Stanley Film Festival in Colorado this week, and Chiller Films will be releasing later this year. For more info on the film, head to their official website or ChillerTV.com.

I met the director of this film. He came to my school and showed "The Last Winter". I'm not a huge fan of his work, but I thought it was pretty cool to meet the guy. He's quite an interesting character.

"I am not going back out there' That's what the actor said when he was in make-up.

The concept seems like the makings of a good short film. Can't imagine how they could stretch it past 10 mins
