Independent Entertainment has send us information about their upcoming film "Snow Sharks: Ancient Snow Beast". The film is the first feature from 26-year-old writer-director Sam Qualiana, who may be best known to indie horror fans as the lead in "Porkchop II: Rise of the Rind".
Special Features on the DVD includes three short films, behind the scenes, outtakes and trailers. "Snow Sharks: Ancient Snow Beast" hits stores on December 11th.
In the tradition of TREMORS and SHARKTOPUS comes the newest entry in the annals of rampaging monster movies! SNOW SHARK: ANCIENT SNOW BEAST tells the story of a small town terrorized by a prehistoric creature and the fearless citizens who defend it.
In 1999, a team of animal biologists investigating a rash of wildlife killings disappeared in the lonely woods near a small town. Years later, a local resident claims to have killed a prehistoric carnivorous creature living in the snow. Now, someone – or something – is making lunch of the locals.
As curiosity-seekers and crypto zoologists descend on the small town, drawn by the legend of the Snow Shark, Mark - sole survivor of an earlier attack - leads an armed and dangerous posse into a deadly battle.
Dive into Snow Shark, the outrageous and spine-tingling tale of the world’s greatest predator, frozen for thousands of years, freed by an earthquake, and really, really hungry.
The first (and proudly micro-budget) feature film from 26-year-old writer-director Sam Qualiana, who may be best known to indie horror fans as the lead in PORKCHOP II: RISE OF THE RIND, received support from a variety of independent genre veterans: producer Richard Chizmar (Cemetery Dance Publications), award-winning horror novelist and filmmaker Gregory Lamberson (SLIME CITY MASSACRE), Michael Gesel, Michael Faust and John Maclay. Brett Piper (SHOCK-O-RAMA) and Mark Polonia (SPLATTER BEACH) tackled post-production, and creature FX were supplied by John Renna and Arick Szymecki and Andrew Lavin of Anomaly FX
Greg Lamberson states in the SNOW SHARK’S production press release,
“Qualiana originally made a Snow Shark short seven years ago. After winning the Buffalo Screams Horror Film Festival’s “Filmmaker to Watch” award for his short crime drama No Road Out, he decided to remake the Snow Shark short using the skills he had developed in the intervening years. Reaction to the project was so positive he turned it into a feature instead and started shooting on weekends, before the script was completed, to beat the spring thaw. “
SNOW SHARK was acquired by media licensing and marketing company Independent Entertainment in the midst of a series of theatrical and festival screenings that include the Buffalo Screams Film Festival, the Bronx Week Film Festival, and the HorrorFind Film Festival.
Available to digital and home entertainment markets for the first time, SNOW SHARK: ANCIENT SNOW BEAST is presented with behind-the-scenes material, short films and outtakes.
