He was one of the big name directors of 1990’s for action films Renny Harlin (Die Hard 2, Cliffhanger), he was always involved in some shape or form. Since then his career it’s been mostly direct to DVD flicks and tonight we the UK trailer (courteys of Anchor Bay UK) for The Dyatlov Pass Incident.
Called The Devil’s Pass in USA,The Dyatlov Pass Incident follows 5 American students who head into the Urals in Russia to investigate the mysterious deaths of 9 skiers in 1959 from extremely odd circumstances. 50 plus years on as the team try to uncover the mystery, strange phenomena start to affect them looking like history is about to repeat itself.
A found footage film might not be the biggest draw for many people, however when done right it can be highly entertaining if not downright silly. For those fortunate to have caught this have enjoyed the questionable CGI, which we don’t mind if we get a decent outcome.
The Dyatlov Pass Incident gets a limited release in UK &USA and Film Four Frightfest on 23rd August . The film stars Gemma Atkinson, Matt Stokoe, Richard Reid, Holly Goss and Luke Albright.
In February 1959, nine ski hikers went missing in a remote area of the Ural Mountains in Russia. Two weeks later all nine were found dead, half dressed and hundreds of yards from their camp, their bodies giving off high levels of radiation and bearing severe internal injuries, including broken ribs and fractured skulls, but showing no discernible external wounds or any signs of a struggle. Their deaths have remained a mystery, with rumours attributing the incident to everything from alien encounters, government conspiracies and the supernatural.
Now, five American college students are hoping to solve the mystery of what has become known as the Dyatlov Pass Incident by retracing the steps of the original ill-fated expedition and documenting their findings on film. But what they are about to discover in the remote, icy wastes will prove to be more shocking and unexpected that anything they could possibly have imagined.
