JAWS made everyone afraid of the ocean, but there is just something unsettling about swimming in the murky waters of a river. Maybe it's the fact that you can't see what is underneath you, swimming alongside you, or waiting to devour you in that dirty water. Those are the fears that director Cayce Mell is hoping to exploit with MONONGAHELA, a river monster fright flick that stars Alex Russo, Scott Sullivan, Jake Mulliken, and Erin Ryan. We have a look at the trailer and artwork for this wildly-titled film below.
MONONGAHELA follows Kate Walsh (Alexandra Russo, Dying to Meet You) after she misses her flight, loses her job, and meets two men in the airport bar: Mick (Scott Sullivan, Brothers at Last) and Ben Munroe (Jake Mulliken, “Breaking Bad”). Mick and Ben reveal to Kate that they are cryptozoologists, researchers who spend their time chasing down Bigfoot and camping out on the shores of Loch Ness. When Kate asks them what they are doing in Pittsburgh, they inform her that they have come to investigate sightings of a mysterious creature lurking in the Monongahela River.
No word on as to when we'll be able to check this little indie out, but we'll keep you updated on news as we hear it.
