308 Enterprises shared the first trailer for The Ninth Passenger, which follows a group of college students on a spontaneous midnight sea voyage that turns to horror when they drift to a dark island and are hunted by a mysterious ninth passenger… a mutant creature. The mystery of the trailer is that we don’t catch a single glimpse of the monster. Uh-oh?
The thriller which stars Jesse Metcalfe (“Dallas”, John Tucker Must Die), Alexia Fast (Jack Reacher), Tom Maden(“Scream: The TV Series”), Veronica Dunne (“K.C. Undercover”), Sabina Gadecki (“Entourage”), Corey Large (Heist, It Follows), David Hennessey (The Girl Who Invented Kissing), Cinta Kiehl (After the Dark), Timothy V Murphy (The Lone Ranger), was written by Corey Large and Steve Albert and is to be directed by Ian Plaff.
Here’s the long synopsis:
“The Ninth Passenger follows a spontaneous midnight sea voyage by a group of partying college students. There are eight people aboard the luxury yacht, owned by an evil biotechnology CEO who’s the father of one of the passengers. Another on board is a mechanic who’s quickly embroiled in a trip he’d rather not take since his job entails ulterior motives. The trip goes sideways when they drift to a dark island and both their engine and radio fail. At the same time, ‘something’ sneaks onto the yacht — the ninth passenger. Some of the crew go to the island looking for help but instead find that it is home to a vicious creature. Just a few make it back to the yacht only to discover grisly havoc. In the end, two are left, and when a “rescue” boat comes, we discover that the mechanic was working for a rival company the whole time. But instead of getting paid, he and the other passenger are left for dead, drifting alone in the vast ocean…until something breaks the surface heading straight for them.”
