From The Press Release:
[SKINWALKER RANCH] is inspired by true-events and reports around “Skinwalker Ranch” (http://skinwalkerranch.org/) in NE Utah, which started gaining media attention a few years ago (including Jesse Ventura’s ‘Conspiracy Theory’ and most recently ‘Joe Rogan Questions Everything’ on SyFy) after years’ worth of reports of a wide range of unexplained phenomena. The film touches on these reports ranging from mysterious orbs and alleged UFO sightings to giant wolf-like creatures and livestock mutilation.
It is a found footage movie that starts with the disappearance of ranch owner Hoyt Miller’s eight year old son, Cody on November 11, 2010. Modern Defense Enterprises (MDE) sent a team of experts to document and investigate the mysterious occurrences, which only escalate upon their arrival… The incidents become more violent, causing tensions to rise as the team must decide how far they will go to unlock the mysteries of “Skinwalker Ranch.” The group debates whether the answers are worth risking their lives for, or if they should just call off the investigation and leave the ranch – that is, if leaving is actually an option…
Produced by Deep Studios, SKINWALKER RANCH was directed by Devin McGinn, written by Adam Ohler, and stars Jon Gries, Kyle Davis, Erin Cahill, Devin McGinn, Matthew Rocheleau, & Steve Berg. Right now the film is shooting for a Theatrical/VOD release on October 30th. That’s right, boils ‘n ghouls, just in time for our favorite holiday, Halloween!
