20 Comments

Set in a small town in Poland but shot in Canada, the new horror flick from “Jack Brooks: Monster Slayer” director Jon Knautz is called “The Shrine”, one of those “American teens go missing while backpacking through Europe” cautionary tale. Plus, ritual sacrifices and creepy Polish country bumpkins. You know, the usual. Check out the teaser trailer and images from the movie, which is set for 2010.

After a young American backpacker goes missing in Europe, a group of journalists link his disappearance to a remote village in Poland called Alwainia. Upon further investigation, the journalists discover that Alwainia has a history of bizarre cult activity revolving around human sacrifice. Hell bent on discovering the truth, they travel to the small village, but quickly find themselves pursued by a mysterious group set on killing them. Forced into the gruesome reality of true survival horror, the journalist’s soon discover that Alwainia hides a much darker secret than they could ever imagine.

Starring Aaron Ashmore, Cindy Sampson, Meghan Heffern, Trevor Matthews, Debra McCabe, Connor Stanhope, Ben Lewis, and written and directed by Jon Knautz.

Expect it on DVD in 2010.

    I’ve heard that the ation takes place in Polish village and now, when I saw this trailer… WTF? Well, it looks rather like amish village in US. It’s a lot easier to find Lexus in Polish village than a torch. Someone here has never been in Europe. Hope it’ll be a comedy. Well done guys…

      Yeah, some kind of ill imagination and complete lack of knowledge about the world, particularly about Eastern Europe.

        OMG, I’m Polish and I’ve never seen such a village in my whole 33-year life :))) As you guys said – complete lack of knowledge and someone here has never been in Europe. It’s gonna be so stupid movie, I guess…
