IFC Heads into Greg McLean and Justin Dix's Crawlspace
Just in time for its premiere at this year's Screamfest L.A., news has come that IFC Films has acquired North American rights to the sci-fi horror Crawlspace from producer Greg McLean (Wolf Creek) and director Justin Dix.
The sci-fi action thriller features an ensemble cast of actors led by Ditch Davey ("Blessed") and Amber Clayton ("Three Rivers"). It marks the directorial debut of FX wizard Justin Dix (Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones) and tells the tale of "a squad of elite soldiers sent to infiltrate and extract the lead science team from Pine Gap, Australia’s top secret underground military compound, after it comes under attack from unknown forces. The mission is compromised when they encounter a young woman with no memory of who she is or how she came to be there. As they try to escape, the group quickly discovers all is not as it seems and the facility has become a testing ground for something far more sinister."
More as it comes.
Deep in the heart of the unforgiving Australian desert lies Pine Gap, a top-secret government facility operated by the United States military. When the base comes under attack from unknown forces, an elite team is sent in to extract the military scientists. They encounter a beautiful young woman with no memory of how she came to be in the base, and find it overrun by disturbed patients from the base’s medical sector.
But as the squad delves deeper it becomes clear that there is something far more sinister – and far more dangerous – going on at Pine Gap. A taut thriller that recalls the best classic sci-fi action films, Crawlspace is the feature debut of Justin Dix – an award winning special effects supervisor who has worked with George Lucas and Roger Donaldson.
