Based on the bizarre but true events surrounding the mysterious deaths of nine ski hikers who went missing in the Ural Mountains in 1959, THE DYATLOV PASS INCIDENT is Renny Harlin's take on the found footage genre. We've just received a large number of images from the thriller, and you can check them out below. Bundle up!
In February 1959, nine ski hikers went missing in a remote area of the Ural Mountains in Russia. Two weeks later all nine were found dead, half dressed and hundreds of yards from their camp, their bodies giving off high levels of radiation and bearing severe internal injuries, including broken ribs and fractured skulls, but showing no discernible external wounds or any signs of a struggle. Their deaths have remained a mystery, with rumours attributing the incident to everything from alien encounters, government conspiracies and the supernatural. Five American college students are hoping to solve the mystery by retracing the steps of the original ill-fated expedition and documenting their findings on film. But what they are about to discover in the remote, icy wastes will prove to be more shocking and unexpected that anything they could possibly have imagined.
THE DYATLOV PASS INCIDENT comes out in the U.K. on August 23rd; no word on when it hits other territories, but we'll be sure to tell you when that info thaws.
