First trailer unveiled at Cannes for horror-sci/fi LANDING LAKE

After a successful market screening during the Cannes Marché Du Film, Filmablast and EuroObscura  present the first trailer for the upcoming British science fiction movie LANDING LAKE.  From the trailer it’s clear the intention of the director Cesare P. Libardi Di K. is to push the envelope for an extreme and bloody throw back to the science fiction movies of the ’80s like THE THING or ALIEN.

The movie has been shot in Super35mm using the Kodak 500T Vision 3 and the Fuji 250D Vivid Eterna film stock. The locations include the region of Trentino, Northern Italy, and the UK. Victoire Vecchierini, Emma Bown, Aaron Stielstra and Phil Zimmerman star in the movie. It marks the debut of Italian director Cesare P. Libardi Di K., founder of Filmablast.

The story revolves around a mountain lake where a team of technicians find themselves trapped. It seems that something fell in the lake in the past, and it’s now waiting to claim new lives. A standard repair procedure turns into a fight for survival for the members of the team, who will have to confront the unknown menace lurking under the surface of the seemingly tranquil water.

    It’s time for horror films to stop including the word ‘Lake’ in the title. Eden Lake is the best of the bunch but there have been dozens. Wolf Lake, Lake Mungo, Lake Eerie, Lake Placid, Lake Bodom… The list goes on and on and on.

    If you can’t come up with an interesting or at least not totally cliched title, why should we believe the film will be any better?

    Andy: Are you slow? It’s about making an effort to choose a name that hasn’t been used a hundred times before. Making a movie is, in theory, a creative process. Do you think it unreasonable to ask the people doing so to be creative?
