The film which was originally called THE STATION had it's screening at the Toronto Film Festival this past year. The movie must have displayed something very special to it's viewers as IFC Midnight scooped it up and are now preparing for the flick's release under the title BLOOD GLACIER. The trailer (see below) gives off a THE THING feel as the characters are shown at a remote location, a research station in the German Alps, with a deadly mystery quickly growing among them.
"Janek is a technician on a climate observation station high up in the German Alps, one of a team of scientists preparing their outpost for visit from the Environment Minister. Their routine is interrupted by a strange discovery; a red liquid pouring from a nearby glacier, melted free from the ice crust that is shrinking with climate change. When the 'glacier blood' comes in contact with the local wildlife, it causes changes that are at first curious, then horrifying."
Blood Glacier stars Gerhard Liebmann, Edita Malovcic, Hille Beseler, Peter Knaack, Felix Römer, and Brigitte Kren. The film is directed by Marvin Kren.
BLOOD GLACIER is coming to VOD and select theaters May 2nd.
