Lionsgate Goes Under the Mountain in August

The director of the splattery good gore-fest Black Sheep (review here), Jonathan King, has a new flick coming out from Lionsgate and Lightning Media called Under the Mountain, and though it’s been given a PG-13 rating, we’re still confident enough in King’s filmmaking chops to insist that this one is worth a look!

Look for the flick to hit DVD courtesy of Lionsgate on August 10th. Sam Neill, Sophie McBride, Tom Cameron, Leon Wadham, and Oliver Driver star.

When teenage twins Rachel and Theo investigate the creepy old house next door, they discover the Wilberforces – shape-shifting creatures that lurk beneath Auckland’s ring of extinct volcanoes.

Guided by the mysterious Mr. Jones and with the help of their older cousin, Ricky, the twins must rekindle the unique powers they once shared if they are to destroy this ancient evil – before it destroys them.

You're such an inspiration for the ways that I will never, ever choose to be.

    This is the 2nd time DC has posted this story.

    Once again: I have seen this movie and it is ABSYMAL. It is a cliched, poorly made movie for children that will bore it’s target audience and adults as well.

    Black Sheep was a great concept with a lackluster execution. Under the Mountain is a poor concept with a poor execution. Even Sam Neill doesn’t come off well in this turkey.

      Oh man… cue DC staff hissyfit in three… two… one…

      But seriously folks, what’s the deal with Sam Neill? I mean the guy looks evil even when he’s a good guy! AmIright?!

      Actually the first time we mentioned it we had no firm date for the DVD release. Now we do. Just an update dude.

        Fair enough.

        Now I dare you to watch this crap fest and then tell me Johnathan King has crafted a good movie.

        Hell, I double dare you!

        Triple dare with a scoop of ice cream!
