In the tradition of John Carpenters The Thing comes ‘Landing Lake’ from High Octane Pictures

A body-horror throwback out of the UK, writer-director Cesare Pollacci Libardi di K’s Landing Lake is now available on video on demand and DVD from High Octane Pictures.

Shot in Super35mm, and utilizing the lavish terrain of Trentino, Northern Italy, and the UK, this pulsating cocktail of The Thing and Rabid is pure lung-draining thrills.

A team of satellite technicians enter the woods to repair a communication station but they are forced to rescue the crew of an airplane that crashed near a lake. They quickly realise that something may be coming from the lake that is affecting their minds and the passing of time. As they lose their inhibitions their most primal desires take hold. Lured on by the unseen entity it seems that only one of the team is permitted to bond with it and so be reborn in a new physical body. A terrifying game of strategy not to survive, but rather to die with the promise of life anew.
