We last told you way back about a nature-amok opus called SSSLITHER that we figured would probably undergo a title change in deference to James Gunn’s SLITHER. Now Dread Central has reported that the movie does indeed have a new moniker, RAZORTOOTH, and posted a link to a trailer, which you can see directly here at the website of the Push Worldwide company.
The movie follows an animal control officer, a small-town sheriff and (of course) a group of college students as they confront a giant, flesh-eating eel in the Florida Everglades. Patricia Harrington directed from a script by Jack Monroe and Matt Holly; the cast is headed by Kathleen (AMERICAN PIE PRESENTS BAND CAMP) LeGue, Doug Swander, Simon Page and Kate Gersten, with Obscure Artifacts’ Jeff Farley and Chris Bergschneider behind the design of the creature (brought to life for the movie via CGI).
In addition to the in-development sequel RAZORTOOTH 2, Push also has a fright film called HOSTILE in the hopper; a survival-horror opus about a group of thieves who trek into the mountains to recover buried loot and are stalked by a mysterious killer, it was originally (very briefly) released on DVD by York Entertainment back in 2001 as RAVEN’S RIDGE. Mike Upton directed and produced from a script by Garrett Clancy, with a cast including William Kendall, Dawn Howard, John Rizzi, Phillip Connery and Jorge Garcia in a pre-LOST role. You can see a trailer and find out more about that movie here.
