From Dark Sky Films (House of the Devil, Hatchet 2) and producer Larry Fessenden (House of the Devil, The Roost, I Sell the Dead, The Last Winter) comes Hypothermia, which wraps production tomorrow under the watchful eye of James Felix McKenney. Bloody Disgusting scored an exclusive look behind-the-scenes of the shoot with McKenney and star Michael Rooker! In a remote winter hideaway devoid of any sign of life, two unsuspecting families on an ice-fishing vacation discover something sinister lurking in the frozen lake. One thing is for certain – the creature is hungry and the only prey left is human. Blanche Baker, Greg Finley, Don Wood, Ben Forster and Amy Chang also star.
“The story takes place in Maine in the dead of winter. Ray Pelletier and his wife Helen have been ice fishing the frozen expanse of Lake Noyade for over two decades but this year something is different: no fish bite. Is it their new neighbors on the ice — Stevie Jr. and his overbearing Dad — with their high-tech gear and over-sized rig that is driving the fish away? Or is it something else? The answer comes in an onslaught of ferocious attacks that unites the two families against a mysterious creature from under the ice.”
