Shooting officially began last week at Swiss locations on Markus Welter’s 3D horror slasher film One Way Trip. Austrian writing duo Matthias Bauer and Bastian Zach’s screenplay focuses on a group of young people falling into the murderous clutches of a madman as they search for hallucinogenic mushrooms in Switzerland’s Jura Mountains. The cast is headlined by Sabrina Reiter (Star of both Dead in 3 Days films), Melanie Winiger, Herbert Leiser, and Martin Loos. The co-production between Zurich-based HesseGreutert Film and Vienna’s Superfilm is the first 3D feature film to go into production from Switzerland and Austria and is described by the producers as “an intelligent slasher film with gothic elements and an unexpected ending.” Check out some early sales art and the logo inside!

Everything is fine until one of the youths wants to get beer and comes back with a blood-covered and smashed face. They don’t know what happened but need to find help. As they discover that their car has a flat tire and their phones don’t work, they seek shelter in a nearby farmhouse. But that’s just where they were supposed to go. In a nerveracking countdown one after another gets killed by their dangerous haunters…”
