Sometimes all you have to see is the poster for a film, and it will immediately grab you and make you want to see it. This is one of those times. On tap right now you’ll find the artwork and trailer for the latest sliver of alien-inspired lunacy, The Montauk Chronicles. Dig it!
Christopher P. Garetano (Horror Business) writes and directs. The flick is headed to a self-distributed DVD and Blu-ray release on January 14th.
Montauk is a remote U.S. town located on the very eastern tip of Long Island, New York. High on a hill, above the rocky waters of the Atlantic Ocean, looms a giant rusted radar tower. It’s a ghost relic of the past that local fishermen use as a marker to help guide their ships safely to shore. The old military tower is also a landmark for what once was an active Camp Hero Air Force Base.
The base has a recorded history that dates back to the Revolutionary War. During World War II, Camp Hero was used as a defense station and was equipped with giant mark seven cannons that were loaded and ready in the event of a Nazi attack. There are those who say that in the 1970’s the base was used for a much different purpose.
Montauk Chronicles is the story of three men who claim they were brainwashed and forced against their will by a clandestine organization to take part in secret experiments. Evil atrocities are said to have occurred deep beneath the surface of the Camp Hero Air Force base. Alfred Bielek, Stewart Swerdlow, and Preston Nichols all tell tales of experiments that were conducted on nearly one hundred thousand people over the course of about ten years. Kidnappings, murder, torture, time travel, mind control, and extraterrestrial contact are all said to have occurred at Camp Hero. Montauk Chronicles is the very first and honest (cinematic) examination of the Camp Hero Legends.
It raises many questions of our place in the universe and what the future may hold for humanity. It’s an entertaining journey into the unknown and a study of fear, lies, paranoia, and the truth.
