The independent survivalist-thriller Mountain Fever will receive its world premiere at the Frightfest Film Festival in London on Saturday, August 26h. In anticipation of the premiere screening, a new teaser and poster have been released!
“Mountain Fever is an ice-cold thriller about a hapless Englishman who, hostage in his own home, is forced to team up with his captor to fight off the survivors of a fatal pandemic.
“Set during an unforgiving Alpine winter, featuring a sledgehammer-wielding villain and an ass-kicking female lead, Mountain Fever promises genre fans bone-shattering new chills.”
The film is the feature debut of director Hendrik Faller, an independent filmmaker working in London looking to bring this unique British-led alpine thriller to international audiences.
“I wanted to explore human nature in extreme circumstances. What are we capable of when life becomes a pure act of survival?,” Hendrik Faller explained. “Mountain Fever is a nail-biting survivalist thriller that pits its characters against each other as their situation devolves into maximum desperation. I think genre fans are going to love the cat and mouse game that ensues.”
There’s also literally a cat, Hendrik Faller points out. “We have a one-eyed kazak cat who plays a fantastic little role, we even have a horse… But the most surprising character is Kara. She’s this mysterious, gas mask wearing stranger who pistol-whips her way through the men in our film. She’s a real dark horse, twisting our snow-heaped tale in ways the audience just cannot predict. It’s a really wild journey and I believe our viewers are going to be on the edge of their seats from start to finish!”
