Haven’t heard much about director Kaare Andrews’ tentacle monster in the sky movie “Altitude” since we posted the trailer for it a while back. As it turns out, Anchor Bay Home Entertainment has the film scheduled for a DVD/Blu-ray bow on October 26, 2010. Cover art to your left, and official press release below.
There’s nothing like the rush of flying through the air, soaring through the clouds…and coming face-to-face with pure evil! A supernatural thriller that reaches new heights in terror, Anchor Bay Entertainment presents Altitude on Blu-ray™ and DVD October 26th. Produced by Escape Factory’s Ian Birkett and directed by award-winning graphic artist and music video director Kaare Andrews (best known for his artwork on Spider-Man, The Incredible Hulk comics and the upcoming Astonishing X-Men), Altitude features a hot young cast headlined by Jessica Lowndes (“90210,” The Haunting of Molly Hartley, “Greek”) in this unique sci-fi/horror thriller that gives new meaning to “fear of flying!” SRP is a low $26.98 for the DVD, and $34.99 for the Blu-ray™. Pre-book is September 29th.
Altitude follows a group of teens on a weekend getaway aboard a small plane that suddenly turns deadly for the rookie pilot (Lowndes) and four young friends: Julianna Guill (Friday the 13th, “90210”), Ryan Donowho (Bandslam, “The O.C.”), Landon Liboiron (“Degrassi: The Next Generation”) and Jake Weary (“As the World Turns”). Minutes after the group takes-off, an unexplained malfunction sends the aircraft climbing out of control into the heart of a mysterious storm. Unable to get their bearings or contact the ground, the survivors gradually realize they are locked in combat with a terrifying supernatural force.
