I'm a sucker for a good 'nature run amok' film, especially those featuring killer bears (William Girdler's 1976 GRIZZLY is a personal fave of mine), so imagine my excitement when I learned of a new killer bear thriller starring the exciting cast of James Remar ("Dexter"), Sherilyn Fenn ("Twin Peaks"), Ray Wise ("Twin Peaks", DIGGING UP THE MARROW), and Graham Greene (THE GREEN MILE). That's what we have in store with CHEMICAL PEEL director Hank Braxtan's upcoming UNNATURAL, and today we've got the trailer to share with you.
Here's what we know about UNNATURAL:
A photographer and his group set out in the dead of winter for the Alaskan wilderness to take advantage of the limited, but beautiful daylight. They are met by an experienced hunter and local lodge owner who instills fear within the group by telling them the legend of Maneater, a bear that has fangs and claws sharper than man made metal.
This epic tall tale quickly becomes our groups real living nightmare as they are unaware of a bear experiment that has gone wrong. The bioengineering company, Clobirch Industries, has genetically altered a polar bear so it can better survive climate change, but the end result is a relentless, deadly, man eating machine.
It is up to our lodge owner and his native guide to protect the group from harm, but this bear proves to be more than he or anyone else ever expected.
Here's hoping it fares better than David Hackl's GRIZZLY (aka RED MACHINE), which The Arrow recently got to check out and was rather disappointed in.
Peep the trailer for UNNATURAL below.
