The Dyatlov Pass Incident Gets a New Name, One-Sheet, and TrailerSome surprising news has come in for Renny Harlin’s The Dyatlov Pass Incident. The flick is now known as Devil’s Pass and even nuttier? IFC Midnight is suddenly releasing it on August 23rd. Talk about going from dead silence to deafening scream!

The fact-based film concerns a mysterious incident in 1959, when nine experienced hikers were found dead. It finds contemporary students on a trek to investigate the mystery. Producers are Alexander Rodnyansky, Kia Jam, Harlin, and Sergei Bespalov.

Harlin said: “I was fascinated by this story, which remains one of the great unsolved mysteries of modern paranormal lore. The facts, the script, and the very dramatic setting convinced me that there is a thrilling movie there, just waiting to rivet audiences.

Want to know a bit more? In a nutshell the Dyatlov Pass Incident refers to an unsolved mystery that occurred in the northern Urals which saw a group of ski hikers tear open their tent from the inside and leave barefoot in a heavy snowstorm. Though there was no sign of a struggle, two victims had fractured skulls, one was missing her tongue, and clothing belonging to the victims contained high levels of radiation. Soviet investigators concluded that “a compelling unknown force” had caused their deaths.

Synopsis
Devil’s Pass follows a group of students on a trek to investigate the true life mystery of nine Russian skiers who befell an unexplained death while skiing in the Russian mountains in 1959. To this day, their deaths have been one of the most bizarre unsolved mysteries of the 20th century.

    Nice to see them re-using the horrid, 3D monsters from I AM LEGEND here in an effort to save money. :)

      See, THAT would have been a great movie. Even tossing the “what if” UFO or government testing into the mix. Oh well, I have not made a movie, so they still one-upped me, right? :)

    That poster amuses me. “From Renny Harlin, director of these other two movies featuring snow!”
