After an enormously successful festival run across North America, winning raves from critics and audiences alike, and sweeping the 2017 Toronto After Dark Film Festival awards with Best Feature Film, Best Horror Film, Best Canadian Film, and Scariest Film, Trench 11 comes to Montreal on August 31st, as well as other locations across Canada. See the list of locations below.
We all know (or at least we should know) that the Nazis were responsible for some of history’s most horrific atrocities against mankind, which makes the premise of Trench 11 all too plausible. And if you liked the vile worm creatures that infected humans in the short-lived TV series The Strain, then, judging from the Trench 11’s trailer, this is the movie for you!
Trench 11 Synopsis:
Northern France, 1918. World War One is reaching its bloody climax and the end can’t come soon enough for Canadian tunneller Berton. His superiors, however, need his expertise to get a team of British and American allies inside a secret underground German base. It seems that the Germans have lost control of a highly contagious biological weapon they were developing that turns its victims into mindless killers. Berton and his team soon find themselves 100 feet underground with hordes of the infected, a rapidly spreading disease, and a platoon of Stormtroopers dispatched to wipe them out.
Trench 11 stars Rossif Sutherland, Karine Vanasse, Charlie Carrick, Shaun Benson, Ted Atherton, and Robert Stadlober.
