Camping. We can cite so many different reasons why we shouldn’t spend time in the woods. It’s a kind of foreign realm to us city folk. There are just too many variables. Especially at night. In the dark. With his new film Alluvial producer-director Geza Decsy and company are set to give us a whole new reason to fear what’s out there — ourselves.
Alluvial is a horror/survival film that chronicles the downward spiral of seven friends who, while camping in the godforsaken badlands of Panamint Valley, contract a mysterious illness, one which causes them to turn on one another in a mesmerizing display of skewed emotions and primal rage.
Already cast are Ken Lally (“Heroes”, “Enterprise”) and R.A. Mihailoff (Leatherface: Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3). Geza Decsy will produce with filmmaker Paul Hough (The Human Race, The Angel). Roy Knyrim’s SOTA FX (The Abyss, Ed Wood, Of Gods and Monsters) is attached to provide special makeup and physical effects, multi-platinum artist and music producer Fred Coury will score the film and his company Double Forte Music will handle music supervision, and Terri King will serve as costume designer.
Also set to co-produce are co-writers Jack Ulrich and our own Sean Decker. “Jack and I intended it to be a study in both horrific human behavior and philosophies on inner peace,” says Decker of Alluvial. “The fear of betrayal is sadly a tie which binds us as a species. It crosses cultures. To put it simply: How well do you know your friends?”
“My intent with Alluvial is to pay particular attention to the darker dramatic influences from classic European horror, while never forgetting the modern American cinema’s penchant for polished action and scintillating imagery”, says producer-director Decsy. “Sean and Jack came up with a truly disturbing premise which allows us to give the genre fans what they love the most, yet also serve up a brutally honest dose of human psychodrama they might not expect.”
Alluvial is positioned to be an action-filled, horrific journey into the darker aspects of the human psyche. Production will begin shooting in October. Check out our exclusive storyboards below courtesy of Martin Mercer, and keep it locked here for more details to come.
