Dave Yarovesky's feature directorial debut THE HIVE first caught our attention when Chris Hardwick's Nerdist Industries picked it to become the first film released under their Nerdist Presents distribution banner. With the release of a new trailer, the project has now piqued my interest even more.
Starring Gabriel Basso, Kathryn Prescott, Jacob Zachar, and Gabrielle Walsh, the film
tells the story of Adam, a teenage camp counselor who wakes inside a boarded up cabin, with absolutely no memory of who he is or where he is. The only clues as to who he is and what’s happening are messages Adam has scrawled for himself onto the walls and disturbing changes to his physiology. As he begins to piece together the events that led him to his strange imprisonment, he realizes that the only memories he does have are not his own, and they may be the key to his survival.
Campgrounds are a traditional setting for genre stories, but this looks unlike any other camp-set horror movie I've ever seen before. There are some very surprising and impressive visuals within the trailer, promising that, although THE HIVE contains some familiar elements, it will be presenting them in its own unique way.
Nerdist plans to show us what exactly is going on in THE HIVE when it releases the movie to theatres and on VOD this fall.
