The Dyatlov Pass Incident (2013)
The Dyatlov Pass Incident
"The New Blair Witch Project!" - Scream Magazine

Opens in UK cinemas Friday 23rd Aug. 2013

Based on the bizarre but true events surrounding the mysterious deaths of nine ski hikers who went missing in the Ural Mountains in 1959, “The Blair Witch Project” meets “The Descent” by way of “The X Files” in this unnerving supernatural shocker from the director of “Die Hard 2” and “Deep Blue Sea”.

Key talent:

Directed by Renny Harlin (Deep Blue Sea; The Long Kiss Goodnight; Cliffhanger; Die Hard 2; A Nightmare On Elm Street 4: The Dream Master) and starring Gemma Atkinson (Night Of The Living 3D Dead; Casualty; Airborne; Hollyoaks), Matt Stokoe (Misfits; The Village; Black Mirror) and Holly Goss (Trinity).


In February 1959, nine ski hikers went missing in a remote area of the Ural Mountains in Russia. Two weeks later all nine were found dead, half dressed and hundreds of yards from their camp, their bodies giving off high levels of radiation and bearing severe internal injuries, including broken ribs and fractured skulls, but showing no discernible external wounds or any signs of a struggle. Their deaths have remained a mystery, with rumours attributing the incident to everything from alien encounters, government conspiracies and the supernatural.

Now, five American college students are hoping to solve the mystery of what has become known as the Dyatlov Pass Incident by retracing the steps of the original ill-fated expedition and documenting their findings on film. But what they are about to discover in the remote, icy wastes will prove to be more shocking and unexpected that anything they could possibly have imagined.
You'll Love It Because

Based on a true story that to this day remains shrouded in mystery, “The Dyatlov Pass Incident” takes the known facts of the tragedy and spins them into a truly chilling horror experience that brilliantly combines elements of contemporary history, conspiracy theory, sci-fi and the supernatural that all contribute to a knock-out twist and a breathtaking finale. Acclaimed Hollywood blockbuster action movie director Renny Harlin adds a unique level of flair to the claustrophobic atmosphere and, as in his previous work, gleefully pulls out all the stops when delivering the thrills.

Sounds good to me.

I think i've enjoyed every Renny Harlin film i've seen. Cliffhanger and The Long Kiss Goodnight are masterpieces of action cinema. I even love Cutthroat Island.

Mmm, Gemma Atkinson :lol:
I once sat behind her on a banana boat in Magaluf, I'll have to see if I can dig the photo out ;)

Im not sure the Blair Witch Project is the worst film ever released but your right to avoid this if your not a fan of said fail as this film was a little in the same vein imo. it actually had tense moments until the reveal. im not sure i bought into the ending, it will be good to know what you guys thought.

The whole "found footage" documentary thing is so overplayed now with dozens of crap films blurring the way to the couple that worked. Blair Witch worked as it was one of the first and therefore presented something new but if you want a film to quickly fall away into obscurity then this is the genre to do it in.
Between tepid, pointless remakes and hand-held "home video" garbage the horror genre is going through one of the worst dips in creativity since Abbot and Costello met the monsters.
