Ric La Monte, writer/director on 2002's 'Night Terror' is following up with another horror pic, this time 'The Tenant'. The tale of Dr. Walter Newman who has high aspirations to cure all disease through genetic manipulation. Which ultimately leads to the creation of a deformed creature that defies nature. Check out a couple of pics below.
'The Tenant' has all the required blood, gore, deaths cheesecake and beefcake, while incorporating a sophisticated and terrifying story line. The movie is also filled with nerve-racking tension, intense fear, shocking turns, exciting character development, and a never done before particularly effective special effects shot. Presented through stunning High Definition cinematography (CineAlta Cameras with Panavision prime lenses), complimented by a strong, powerful, and hypnotizing sound track in surround sound, with intertwining musical interludes and disturbing sound effects. An astonishing twist, coupled with a chilling surprise at the conclusion, serve to position the movie for a franchise sequel.
