Fango has nabbed an exclusive photo (see below the jump) from THE SHRINE, the new Canadian chiller from the creators of JACK BROOKS: MONSTER SLAYER, which makes its US premiere at LA’s Screamfest this Thursday, October 14 at 7:30 p.m.
Co-written and directed by Jon Knautz, THE SHRINE stars SMALLVILLE’s Aaron Ashmore, SUPERNATURAL’s Cindy Sampson, INSECTICIDAL’s Meghan Heffern and Jack Brooks himself, Trevor Matthews, who helped develop THE SHRINE’s storyline. Per the official synopsis: “After a young American backpacker goes missing in Europe, a group of journalists link his disappearance to a remote village in Poland. They travel there hoping to get the story, but as they unravel the secrets behind this mysterious village, they are suddenly pursued by hostile locals. Unable to escape, they soon become the next victims of ritualistic human sacrifice. Forced into the gruesome reality of true survival horror, the journalists soon discover that this village hides a much darker secret than they could ever imagine.”
THE SHRINE won Best Canadian Film at last summer’s Fantasia film festival in Montreal. “We had a fantastic time screening at Fantasia, and we’re really excited about our U.S. premiere here at Screamfest,” Knautz (pictured below with Ashmore, right) tells Fango. “It’s the perfect place for THE SHRINE, and I can’t wait to show it to everyone.”
The 10th edition of Screamfest, now running through October 17, takes place at Grauman’s Mann Chinese Theater 6 (6925 Hollywood Boulevard). Knautz, Matthews and Sampson will conduct a Q&A after their screening. For more on THE SHRINE, go the official website.
