A new website has launched for Carlo Ledesma’s indie The Tunnel that also features a brand new teaser, which can be viewed beyond the break. The plan for the movie is to get you guys to pay for it so they can give it away for free. That’s pretty goddamn stupid. At least their poster and teaser are well made…
“In 2007 the NSW government suddenly scrapped a plan to utilise the water in the disused underground train tunnels beneath Sydney’s St James Train Station.
In 2008, chasing rumours of a government coverup and urban legends surrounding the sudden backflip, investigative journalist Natasha Warner led a crew of four into the underground labyrinth.
They went down into the tunnels looking for a story – until the story found them.
This is the film of their harrowing ordeal. With unprecedented access to the recently declassified tapes they shot in the claustrophobic subway tunnels, as well as a series of candid interviews with the survivors, we come face to face with the terrifying truth.
The Tunnel also marks the first time that missing sound recordist, Jim “Tangles” Williams, speaks about his experience during those chilling hours…
This never before seen footage takes us deep inside the tunnels bringing the darkness to life and capturing the raw fear that threatens to tear the crew apart, leaving each one of them fighting for their lives.”
