From the Press Release
Friday the 13th may be a day of bad luck for some but not for the busy distribution label Raven Banner Entertainment, who just signed a deal to pick up Canadian rights to horror-thriller The Station, following the film’s jam-packed Midnight Madness world premiere presentation at the Toronto International Film Festival.
Marvin Kren directed from a screenplay by Benjamin Hessler. The Station stars Gerhard Liebmann, Edita Malovcic, Hille Beseler, and Peter Knaack and was produced by Helmut Grasser.
The story is set in the German Alps as a trio of scientists and a technician discover that a rapidly retreating glacier has begun to leak a strange red liquid that seems to be affecting local wildlife.
The deal was negotiated by Annick Mahnert, Michael Paszt, and James Fler for Raven Banner with Sebastien Chesneau of Rezo on behalf of the filmmakers.
