Do you dig “end of the world” thrillers? If so, then you will want to keep an eye out for Hendrik Faller’s upcoming Fever (aka Mountain Fever).
The film screened at FrightFest in 2017, where it received a strong reception, and was also the recipient of two awards at the 2017 Unrestricted View Film Festival for Best Director (Hendrik Faller) and Best Actress in a Feature Film (Anya Korzun).
Check out the film’s poster to the right and the movie’s trailer along with some stills below. Then let us know what you think!
“We camped out in the French Alps for three weeks in the midst of winter,” writer-director Hendrik Faller says. “We wanted to make every second of our snowbound thriller an epic and violent ride for our viewers. The pain the actors go through in the film is real, and I think audiences are going to be on the edge of their seats from the get-go.”
The film is the debut feature from writer-director Faller; stars Anya Korzun, Tom Miller, and Julien Caplan; and was shot in Monnetier-Mornex, a small town in the mountains of Haute-Savoie, France.
Fever hits DVD in the UK on March 12 and iTunes on April 30.
Inspired by the action cinema of James Cameron and the minimalism of Nicolas Winding Refn, and heavily influenced by apocalyptic fare like The Road, Fever follows Jack (Tom Miller), a hapless young Brit as he takes refuge from a deadly pandemic in a snowy Alpine village.
Ill-equipped to survive the harsh winter, things only get worse when renegade Kara (Anya Korzun) breaks into his house and commandeers his dwindling food supplies. His inept plan to get rid of her disintegrates when outsiders (Julien Caplan) also invade, turning his captor into his only ally. As a siege ensues, Jack must choose a side if he hopes to survive.
