After premiering at Tribeca earlier this year, we’ve just learned that Christopher Denham’s survival horror flick Preservation (review) has just been acquired for distribution by The Orchard, who are going to be unloading it at the start of next year. The film is set to hit both limited theaters and VOD outlets on January 9th, 2015.
In the meantime, you can learn more about Preservation below, by checking out the plot crunch, a clip and a couple stills!
Written & directed by Christopher Denham, the film stars Wrenn Schmidt (“Boardwalk Empire”), Pablo Schreiber (“Orange Is The New Black”), and Aaron Staton (“Mad Men”).
Preservation follows brothers Sean (Pablo Schreiber), a recently returned veteran, and Mike (Aaron Staton), a hedge fund manager, who head out of town to hunt in a closed nature preserve with Mike’s wife, Wit (Wrenn Schmidt) – a brainy anesthesiologist – in tow. With Sean unhinged from his stint in the military, and Mike distracted by career ambition, this was not the romantic getaway Wit was hoping for. But soon the trio is threatened by an unseen menace, and the hunters become the hunted. A camping trip in the woods turns into a contest for survival. When the brothers are stalked and ensnared, Wit must unleash her own animal instincts or else end up a trophy.
