Rowena Bentley, Winterskin Trailer, High Octane Pictures

High Octane Pictures and Dark Temple Films has released the terrifying trailer to their upcoming horror flick, Winterskin, starring David Lenik and Rowena Bentley. Filmmaker Charlie Steeds has put together a chilling frostbitten frightfest that will send shivers down your spine!

Gunned down in the snowy wilderness and desperate for shelter, Billy Cavanagh is taken in by kooky old lady Agnes, unaware that her isolated log cabin is being stalked by a bloodthirsty skinless creature hellbent on getting inside.

Here are 5 reasons we love Winterskin trailer:

5) All That Snow!

I’m always interested in seeing how films use the weather as part of its story. I think when done right, the weather becomes another character. The footage captures the snow in all its white beauty and harsh frigidness. 

4) Cabin Fever!

David Lenik plays poor Billy Cavanagh, who unfortunately gets shot in the leg. With his leg still banged up —see what I did there—Billy is unable to leave the old cabin in the woods. Would he rather stay cooped up inside or face the monsters out there in the snow?

3) She’s Crazy!

The House Of Violent Desire actress Rowena Bentley is all kinds of crazy as Agnes. Is she messing with Billy’s head? Or is he trapped in the old cabin with her!?! Agnes appears to be overpowering Billy both physically and mentally.

2) Knocking At The Door!

Someone or something is knocking at the door! This thing trying to get into the cabin looks like it’s covered in ooey-gooey blood! Billy (Lenik) is so frightened of the hideous intruder that he just starts shooting!

1) The Ensemble Cast!

The cast includes Barrington De La Roche, Peter Cosgrove, Kate Davies-Speak, John Lomas, Harrison Nash and Dylan Curtis.

Winterskin will be available May 21 on digital.
