Christopher Webster [Celluloid 01.12.09] movie trailer news horror thriller

I first read about Nine Miles Down during this year's AFM reporting spree but wanted to wait for footage before writing anything about it. The film originally caught my eye because it was written by Australian Everett De Roche (Storm Warning, Long Weekend) and directed by Anthony Waller who made a truly fantastic thriller called Mute Witness back in the 90s.

In the remotest reaches of the Australian Outback, a sandstorm batters a deserted drilling station. Three days earlier, radio contract was lost, so security patrolman Jack is enlisted to investigate. He finds abundant food and resources in the complex but, oddly, not a living soul. Jack encounters a beautiful American geologist named JC who claims to be the last remaining member of the research team. She tells how they had successfully breached the roof of a vast cavern at the unprecedented depth of nine miles. Following the discovery, a series of mysterious sightings and hallucinations were experienced by the increasingly fearful drilling crew. Violence had broken out, and the team fled the site, abandoning her with two scientists' corpses, which she keeps stored in a freezer. Although her explanation seemed logical, Jack suspects she's hiding something more sinister. To him, all the evidence points more towards a supernatural phenomena.

Despite being presented in a full frame aspect ratio (even though the film was lensed in 2.35:1 *tsk tsk*) the trailer features some great moments and atmosphere. Pay particular attention at 1:31 and you'll even see a full on monster which was unexpected.

Nine Miles Down does not have a US release date attached yet.
