Jay Weisman’s Shockwave, Darkside 3D, featuring “The Walking Dead’s” Sonequa Martin-Green, has been ten years in the making; but this past August it finally premiered at the prestigious Film4 FrightFest in London.
While we wait to hear when we might be able to check it out in the States and elsewhere, we have additional info on the writer/director’s ambitious project in the form of a teaser video, a handful of stills (including one at the bottom in 3D so grab those anaglyph [red/blue] glasses you no doubt have stashed in a drawer), and more.
Shockwave, Darkside stars Martin-Green, Meim Melancon, Bill Sage (We Are What We Are), Rich Ceraulo, and Alexander Cendese. Its producers include Christian Arnold-Beutel, Dan DeFilippo, Kevin Fox, Dave Marken, Isen Robbins, and Aimee Schoof.
Five soldiers find themselves marooned on the dark side of the moon, shot down behind enemy lines in a battle over water which is frozen in the deep craters of the lunar surface. With depleting air and supplies, they have no choice but to start a dangerous trek through hostile territory. As their numbers dwindle and nerves fray, they make an amazing discovery about the moon that may just save their lives but destroy the very cause they are fighting for.
