Starring: Milo Ventimiglia, Amanda Schull, Shawn
Ashmore, Bridget Regan, Jonathan Frakes (Dir. Clay Staub)
What It's About: No-nonsense FBI agent Daria Francis
(Schull) is sent to the small, rural town of Devil’s Gate, North Dakota, to
investigate the disappearance of a mother and her young son. While their prime
suspect is the husband (Ventimiglia), the agent's world is shaken when she
becomes trapped in the basement of his farmhouse and must face down
inexplicable terrors as horrifying mysteries unfolds.
Why We Want to See It: A lot of mainstream horror has
become stale and predictable, but this claustrophobic horror/sci-fi thriller
sounds like it could present a fresh and original story, which is only
heightened by the fact that it apparently takes place in a 24-hour period of
time, heightening the stress and tension. Who couldn't use a fresh take on the
creepy, small-town farm basement thriller?
