Laura Ramsey is no stranger to horror, you may remember her from the quite brilliant The Ruins and the dreadful, The Covenant. Anyway, she is heading back to horror in George Bessudo’s Glimmer. Bessudo has previously directed Farm House and Lake Dead, and his new supernatural horror sounds quite interesting. The film also stars the gorgeous Amy Smart (Crank) and also Shaun Roberts (X-Men). No details yet of a release date, but here is the synopsis:
When 16-year-old Annie Tuttle takes a walk at her lakefront home, she spots a young girl standing on the ice-covered lake. As Lucy falls through the ice, Annie hurries to rescue her and sees a figure at the center of the lake; the figure seems to shimmer and disappear before her eyes.
Nine years later Annie is happily married to Jack Cole. Annie gets a letter which reads: “It’s going to kill you. Come alone”. The letter leads her to the Granger Institute and Lucy Talbot – the girl from the lake. Lucy explains that the GLIMMER will never let her live.
Outside Annie meets up with Gabe, the local deputy and a former boyfriend. In Lucy’s room Annie and Gabe discover two pictures and a page torn from a book dating back to 1698; in them the figure of Eldridge Peck appears, a man executed for being a witch. Meanwhile Annie has discovered a link between the Peck family and her husband, Jack.
Annie must race against time to save herself and her unborn child from the GLIMMER.
