Originally called Black Lagoon, the newly titled creature feature Dead Sea has released some new pics, and a gorgeous new poster. While we still wait for a trailer to arrive, the pics will have to make do for now, and I am positive the poster will be a key selling point to fans of monster movies and horror in general. Check out the new stills and poster above and below.
The creature feature is written and directed by Brandon Slagle (2012 Shockfest Award Winner – Best Director, The Black Dahlia Haunting) and stars Alexis Iacono (The Penny Dreadful Picture Show, Blue Caprice), Britt Griffith (Syfy’s “Ghost Hunters”), Devanny Pinn (Nude Nuns with Big Guns), James Duval (Independence Day, Donnie Darko), Chanel Ryan (Bad Kids Go to Hell, BASEketball), Candace Kita (Barb Wire, “Nip/Tuck”), Jw Wiseman (“Deadliest Warrior”), Tawny Amber Young (The Guilt Trip, Bloodsucka Jones), and KJ McCormick (Syfy’s “Ghost Hunters”).
Creature effects are being provided by Phil Nichols of Facades FX Lab (Arlington Road, Boggy Creek, the upcoming Bigfoot Wars).
THE LOCH NESS MONSTER, OGOPOGO, THE WHITE RIVER MONSTER, LUKWATA – these mythical creatures have captured the imaginations of people the world over…and also tested their fears.
However, all legends have some basis in FACT.
2002 – Afghanistan, American troops KIER THAN and CASTOR POLLUX investigate the disappearance of a squadron of SEALS over a reservoir near the Afghan border. The disappearance is attributed to a “serpent beast” which is said to re-appear every thirty years in various areas of the planet to feed. Though their initial instinct is to brush off the story and investigate further, they have a special connection to this “beast”.
Present Day, Southern California – Castor and Kier – back at home and now involved in various miscreant activities in the region – witness what to many may be an unexplained phenomena – the mass of water that the town which they call home is located on is experiencing the drastic dying off of its marine life. The state is called in and a specialist named Victoria Amissus – herself a native of the
town – is called in to investigate.
However, Castor and Kier know what is actually going on – they know that this great serpent has returned to their home, and now must prepare the town for their “offering”.
