New: Serpent Lake

JFT Productions Film Corporation (basically an independent writer/director/producer by the name of Joel Trujillo) has announced that a new giant monster film will go into production later this year, for a 2009 release. The film is called Serpent Lake and it is based on a Loch Ness-type cryptozoological critter said to appear in Astaire’s freshwater lake in Minnesota every 30 years.

You can find out about the filmmaker and watch a teaser trailer for the film (albeit somewhat less inspiring than the poster) on the JFT Productions website.

Trujillo has also made three zombie flicks: Dusk of the Living Dead (2006), Fields of the Living Dead (2006) and the most recent, Eclipse of the Dead (2007) — the latter of which at least sounds like it reworks the cannibal zombie apocalypse background enough to have potential.

    I’m excited about this new production.The director seems very ambitious and a true genre fan.He says it’s not to be taken serious-sort of a comedy/horror.It looks fun in a no-budget,”Monstroid”[It Came From The Lake] or “Loch Ness Horror” sort of way.He plans to make it like the early 1980’s style creature features.It sounds like a lot of fun.

    I hope you’re right, Avery. But really Trujillo’s decision to make such a weak, unprofessional trailer available — to be taken seriously or not — doesn’t fill me with optimism. However, given that it sounds like production hasn’t really started on the film yet may mean that there’s better things to come.

    I think it’s great that indie filmmakers are becoming daring enough to make attempts at other types of horror films.Some are not just making another run-of-the-mill,dime-a-dozen, slasher or zombie flick.While I love both of those sub-genres of horror too,I just find it refreshing to see them be creative enough to take a stab at other kinds of films.The advances of the computer age definitely benefits them now more than ever.I’m very anxious to see what this director’s finished product will be like.Good luck Joel!!
