Daniel O'Reilly & Makenzie Sconce in 'The Girl on the Mountain' Trailer
"I know you're scared… but I made a promise and I intend to keep it." Saban Films has revealed an official trailer for The Girl on the Mountain, a survival thriller from filmmaker Matt Sconce shot in the Sierra Nevadas. The film is opening in select theaters and on VOD starting this March for anyone interested. When a reclusive backwoodsman finds a mute little girl named Aria wandering alone in the forest, he must protect her from the forces determined to end her life. When the girl tells Jack of her past, he learns that evil people are out hunting her. Confronted with this knowledge, he must decide if he will fight the coming danger or retreat into his world of isolation. The director adds his thoughts: "The Girl on the Mountain is the powerful and poignant story of the human experience of love, grief, brokenness and healing." The film stars Daniel O'Reilly, Makenzie Sconce, Megan Elizabeth Barker, Rease Etzler, Ryan Kos, and D.T. Carney. It reminds me of something like Cliffhanger, with very bad men going into the wilderness to find someone.
Here's the official trailer (+ posters) for Matt Sconce's The Girl on the Mountain, from YouTube:
The film is an intense thriller set against a backdrop of beautiful, yet treacherous wilderness. Haunted by a family tragedy, reclusive backwoodsman Jack Ward (Daniel O'Reilly) is given a chance at redemption when a young girl (Makenzie Sconce) fleeing abuse and murder, comes into his life. Safety and security are short-lived as the girl's vengeful father and his posse converge on the two. Now Ward must summon his instincts as a paternal protector and face off against the sadistic intruders. The Girl on the Mountain is directed by American filmmaker Matt Sconce, director of the movies Sleeper, Stricken, Firefall: An Epic Family Adventure, and Altar previously, plus many other short films and production work. The screenplay is also by Matt Sconce, from a story by Christopher Mejia and Matt Sconce. This hasn't premiered at any festivals or elsewhere, as far as we know. Saban Films will debut Sconce's The Girl on the Mountain in select US theaters + on VOD starting on March 8th, 2022. For more info, visit the film's official site. Intrigued?
