With the popularity of giant creature/monster movies like GODZILLA making headlines, that particular sub genre seems to have built up some momentum. Yet another creature is about to be born. POSEIDON REX is coming soon courtesy of director Mark L. Lester. These days Lester has been directing lower budget films but is known for titles such as COMMANDO and FIRESTARTER. In the spirit of films like JAWS, POSEIDON REX looks to merge the fear of the open sea and the fear of the unknown like never before. If you dig these kinds of films, check out the trailer below.
"A small, secluded island off the coast of Belize suddenly finds itself terrorized by a deadly predator from the planet's distant past, when deep-sea divers accidentally awaken an ancient evil. Jackson Slate and his team of underwater cave explorers unearth much more than long-lost Mayan treasure while plumbing the depths of a world famous blue hole. They disturb a creature that's been hibernating for over 60,000 years - a rampaging behemoth of death and destruction not only at sea but also on land."
Starring: Brian Krause, Anne McDaniels, and Steven Helmkamp.
POSEIDON REX is coming to select theaters and iTunes April 18th.
