Now that Jonathan King has made his big debut, Dread Central get to track his next movie from inception onward and have every intention of doing so. That being said, we must’ve missed the news a few weeks back about his follow-up feature, called Under the Mountain. It’s all right cause we’re making up for it now!
King recently spoke with Gameplayer and made mention of the feature. "I’m in pre-pre-production on a dark fantasy-horror adventure kinda thing called Under the Mountain," King told the site. "It’s based on a New Zealand novel from the ’70s that has had a cult following for years. We’re working with Weta again on the creatures and looking forward to making something really creepy and unique.”
From what could be found, Under the Mountain is about a set of twins who are contacted by a stranger from their past who reveals that he’s an alien, and he needs their help to fight off another race of aliens who have less than pleasant plans for Earth. While it doesn’t sound as horror as we may like (not like mutating were-sheep or anything), King’s proven himself to us already so we’ll take his word for it.
