Film centers on a melting glacier that triggers a major biological disaster
IFC Midnight has nabbed U.S. rights to “The Station,” the company said Monday from the Toronto International Film Festival.
The horror film boasts a plot about a global warming gone horribly, horribly wrong. It centers on a group of scientists stationed in the German Alps who discover a rapidly diminishing glacier is leaking strange red liquid that leads to all sorts of biological monstrosities.
The film stars Gerhard Liebmann, Edita Malovcic, Hille Beseler and Peter Knaack. Marvin Kren (“Rammbock”) directs.
It made its world premiere in the Midnight Madness section of the Toronto festival.
Terms for the deal were not disclosed. The sale of the film was negotiated by Arianna Bocco, senior vice president of acquisitions & productions for Sundance Selects/IFC Films with Sebastien Chesneau of Rezo on behalf of the filmmakers.
IFC Midnight is a sister label to IFC Films and Sundance Selects, and is owned and operated by AMC Networks Inc.
