Run Time: 
1 hour 31 mins
Country: 
Canada
Synopsis: 
Northern France, 1918. Canadian tunneller ABRAHM BERTON (Rossif Sutherland) specializes in tunneling under enemy lines and exploding their trenches from below. It’s brutal, claustrophobic work – even more deadly than life above ground in the trenches. As World War One approaches its bloody conclusion, Berton allows himself the luxury of dreaming about a life after war with his French fiancé, VERONIQUE (Karine Vanasse). Berton’s superiors CAPTAIN JENNINGS (Ted Atherton) and DR. PRIEST (Charlie Carrick) have other plans. They need his unique expertise to lead a team of Allies below ‘Trench 11’ inside a secret underground German base they suspect to be the home of REINER’s (Robert Stadlober) weapon laboratory. World War One was a violent era for the development of lethal force. ‘Mustard gas’ and the machine gun were both invented during these unforgiving years. Reiner has lost control of a highly contagious biological weapon – a parasite which was intended to destroy Allied livestock, but has an even more profane effect on humans. Despite profound apathy towards his commanders and all forms of authority, Berton has to confront this sophisticated and profane evil to survive.

About the Director

David MoreauI'm a big fan of fantasy, sci-fi and horror. Unfortunately these genres are hard to find in French films today. I directed a horror movie, ILS, in 2006. At that time, there were still some bold and courageous producers willing to embark on this kind of adventure. With a tiny budget, the movie did rather well, selling more than 250,000 tickets. A small wave of genre films (known as the French Fright) followed, but by 2010 it was dead because it rather failed commercially.It's a shame because France is as fond of this kind of movie as the next country.They just have a hard time projecting themselves into such universes within a French context and with French actors.

About the Director

Tobe HooperHonored with many awards for his films and achievement in the horror genre, Tobe Hooper is truly one of the Masters of Horror. On The Funhouse (1981)] "Well, it wasn't the film I expected to be doing. I actually thought I'd come off of "Salem's" and do something like Eyes of Laura Mars (1978). But this was available and they really wanted me to do it. The writer, Larry Block, talked me into it over the course of 48 hours. It wasn't the film I expected. It surprised me, so my approach to it was probably lighter, less stressful." Tobe Hooper died on August 26, 2017, in Sherman Oaks, Los Angeles and will be missed greatly.

About the Director

Brian O'Malley
Before moving into Directing, Brian studied Sculpture in the DIT School of Fine Art. Whilst there his fascination with the exploration of three-dimensional space inevitably led to him picking up a video camera and creating his first experimental short films. Through these experiments, he discovered visual directors like Sergio Leone and Martin Scorsese, and his desire to be a highly visual commercial film director was born. His video work in college got the attention of his fellow students and before long he was making no-budget music videos for college bands. He considered abandoning art school in favour of film school, however, he felt compelled to complete his studies. After leaving college Brian worked internationally as a snow, ice and sand ...read more
