Marina Antunes [Celluloid 07.28.14] Canada horror

The concept of finding something in the snow that you shouldn't mess around with isn't a new one. The concept has been at the center of any number of horror movies, most famously The Thing, but that's not to say there isn't mileage left on the idea. At least that's what writer/director Nick Szostakiwskyj is hoping for.

Black Mountain Side stars Shane Twerdun, Michael Dickson, Carl Toftfelt, Marc Anthony Williams and Andrew Moxham as a group of researchers who uncover a stone structure which features archaic writing none of them recognize. When the group begins to research where the structure came from, things start to go wrong: some expedition members go AWOL while the rest are struck by a mysterious illness which begins to spread through camp.

Black Mountain Side will make its debut at Fantasia on July 30 and if we're lucky, someone will see fit to pick this one up. It looks like a promising bit of horror.
