It’s incredibly tough to make a horror film when nature is the villain. The audience has a hard time identifying without someone specific to point a finger at, especially with creatures of the wild. This is the reason the protagonist is so important, and why a strong lead is necessary in a film of that nature. A new indie film is heading deep into the woods and is taking a chance on both Charisma Carpenter (The Expendables, “Buffy the Vampire Slayer”) and Ty Olsson (Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem) as the leads (bad idea). Crash Site centers on a family vacation in the woods, during which a couple must fight their way back to civilization through injuries, creepy critters and wild animals after their Jeep crashes. Jason Bourque is directing the film, which recently began principal photography in Vancouver.
