High Octane Pictures delivers a twisted and suspenseful sci-fi/mystery thriller with Landing Lake, starring Emma Brown and Victorie Vecchierini. Writer/director Cesare P. Libardi di K captures cringe-inducing body horror in a claustrophobic and atmospheric survival thriller.
A team of satellite technicians enter the woods to repair a communication station but they are forced to rescue the crew of an airplane that crashed near a lake. They quickly realize that something from the lake is affecting their minds and the passing of time. As they lose their inhibitions, they are being lured on by the unseen entity. Only one person from the team is permitted to bond and be reborn in a new physical body.
Here are 5 reasons why you should see Landing Lake:
5) Victorie Vecchierini!
As an engaging protagonist, Victorie Veccchierini keeps the audience riveted as her character, Georgie, stumbles into an elaborate trap. As time ticks away, Georgie (Vecchierini) becomes even more desperate in her search for answers. Vecchierini does a great job juggling the emotional range, from fear to morbid curiosity.
4) Emma Brown!
Emma Brown is captivating to watch her character, Ann, falls deep into madness. Paranoia sinks straight into Ann (Brown)’s mind as she finds herself trapped inside a force field. She becomes invested with her own survival, rather than collaborating with others.
3) The Effects!
The body horror scares throughout the narrative will have a gross-out effect on the viewer. When the death count starts, as team members are being picked out one by one, this is when the make-effects really stand out.
2) The Director!
Writer/director Cesare P. Libardi di K provides the nail-biting mystery with interesting and well-developed characters. The cinematography by Guiseppe Pignone has a certain stylish look, with a moody filter over the lens. As the camera spies on the ensemble like a voyeur, we are watching the team unit dismantle itself before reaching the suspenseful conclusion.
1) Survival Thriller!
With a great cast, Landing Lake becomes a standout survival thriller that dives right into claustrophobia. Sci-fi/horror fans will definitely get a kick out of this one!
Landing Lake arrives on VOD July 9th, 2019.
