“Alaska 1993. A snowstorm has trapped the small mountain town. Now it’s up to a group of rebellious teenagers to save their town that don’t believe in monsters.” So reads the synopsis—poorly. Is the “small mountain town” supposed to be named “Alaska”? That’s how the synopsis makes it sound. And they’re out to save a town that “don’t” believe in monsters? Is it the town that collectively DOESN’T believe in monsters? Or is it supposed to be the rebellious teenagers (redundancy, much?) who don’t believe? Lousy synopsis. I hope they didn’t pay anyone to write that.
Ah, okay, it looks like it’s a foreign effort, which means that English probably wasn’t the first language of the person who wrote it, so we’ll give ‘em a pass, especially since the film itself is pretty damn rad. Check it out here. It’s a short film. They didn’t have time to film a full feature, as they had planned, because the ‘Rona shut down their production. “Our plan was to make this into a feature film with a worldwide release,” said the filmmaker, “but we only had time to make the first 20 [minutes] before Covid came and shut us down. So we decided to make a kick-ass short out of this and release it as a first chapter for free for all the fans around the world.” Good for them. I hope they get to make their full-length movie.
