It was more than 18 months ago when we first brought you word on Imagination Worldwide's TREEHOUSE, sharing an elongated synopsis and a very cool poster with you. Now we've gotten word that the film is headed to Cannes and, along with that tidbit of info, we have a creepy new trailer to toss your way.
Directed by Michael Bartlett from a screenplay by Alex Child and Miles Harrington, TREEHOUSE has been described by the director as a “siege film…in the same vein as John Carpenter’s Assault on Precinct 13 (1976).” The story for TREEHOUSE focuses on missing teenagers and unknown shadows in the local Missouri woods. A brother and sister are kidnapped and two brothers find one of the victims, Elizabeth. Elizabeth is alone and afraid, in an isolated fort; several shadows lurk below. All three classmates will have to face an unimaginable evil, if they are to survive the night.
Elizabeth (Dana Melanie) arrives home from school to witness the abduction of her younger brother. She gives chase and is not seen again. Soon, news breaks to the local community, coinciding with sightings of strange humanoids and animal abductions and mutilations. The town descends into paranoia and a curfew is enforced. Brothers Killian (J. Michael Trautmann) and Crawford (Daniel Fredrick) stumble upon Elizabeth by chance when sneaking out to party with some local girls and that is when all proverbial hell breaks loose! A confrontation looms between these youths and their hunters.
The film stars Dana Melanie, J. Michael Trautmann, Daniel Fredrick, and Clint James.
