The Stanley Film Festival, an inaugural festival celebrating the best in independent horror, launches today in Estes Park, Colorado at the famous Stanley Hotel, the haunted landmark that inspired “The Shining”‘s Overlook Hotel. To kick it off, Indiewire is pleased to debut the poster for one of the features screening at the festival, Larry Fessenden’s “Beneath.”
The horror pic centers on a group of friends celebrating their high school graduation at a remote lake location. Things take a turn for the dire when they are confronted with a horrifying deadly underwater predator who tests the bonds of their friendship as they fight for survival. The group ends up stuck in the lake in a sinking boat with no oars. Paranoia soon sets in and the friends soon begin to turn on one another.
Take a look at the haunting poster below:
