Mark Margolis (pictured; The Wrestler, “Breaking Bad”) will join Daniel Zovatto in Larry Fessenden’s Beneath, the latest production from Chiller. Bonnie Dennison (Stake Land, Third Watch), Chris Conroy (Sorority Row), Jonny Orsini (Imogene), Griffin Newman (Political Animals) and Mackenzie Rosman (7th Heaven) round out the cast.
Penned by Tony Daniel and Brian D. Smith, “The story will follow six kids stranded on a rowboat who are attacked by a man-eating fish. The horror takes a page out of Hitchock’s book as, in order to survive, the kids one-by-one vote each other off the boat.”
Margolis plays Mr. Parks, a hardened local authority on the lake’s murky history.
Shooting this month in Connecticut (go behind-the-scenes here and here), producer-writer-director-actor Fessenden gets back behind the camera for the creature feature, which he’ll produce through his Glass Eye Pix. Fessenden directed Habit, Wendigo and The Last Winter. He also produced The Innkeepers, House of the Devil, Stake Land and 30+ other films.
