Voltage Pictures has opened up international sales rights for the Distant Horizon creature thriller Serpent at AFM. The film, which is the directorial debut of Amanda Evans and is based on her script, is being produced by Anant Singh, Greig Buckle, and Evans.
The film takes place during a romantic getaway as a couple find themselves trapped in their tent with a venomous snake. As it becomes clear there may be no escape and the situation sparks a heated exchange, the lovers realise only one of them can make it out alive.
Singh explains, “We are very proud to be working with our friends Jonathan Deckter and John Fremes at Voltage, with whom we have worked for many years. Amanda Evans is a very talented director and is passionate about her genre.”
Serpent stars Sarah Dumont (Scouts Guide To The Zombie Apocalypse) and Tom Ainsley (“Versailles”).
Okay, riddle me this: why don’t they toss a sleeping bag on top of the snake and then stomp the unholy shit out of that venomous fucker? Why does one have to die, according to the synopsis? I have so many questions!
