Peter Szewczyk, known for his CG creatures and effects in blockbuster films such as Avatar, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, and Thor: The Dark World, and Shrek, is making his feature directorial debut with Behemoth. And we’ve got the first look.
The film centers on Joshua Riverton, who has spent ten years working for a global chemical behemoth, notorious for their environmental negligence. When his daughter develops a mysterious illness, he steps forward as a whistle-blower, throwing his life into chaos. He’s convinced that his company’s negligence has made his daughter sick, and there are dark forces hiding the truth.
When given the chance to confront his old boss, Dr. Woeland, he allows a standoff to escalate into violence, and Josh is shot in the process. Now Josh is on the run, eating painkillers, and holding Woeland hostage. Josh demands answers about his daughter’s illness, but with each passing moment around Woeland, Josh’s grasp on reality begins to unravel.
Is it the painkillers, or is Woeland more than he seems? Are the dark forces all in Josh’s head, or has he stumbled into a terrifying league of evil?
Josh Eisenberg, Paul Statman, Jennifer Churchich, Richard Wagner, Whitney Nielson, and Vadym Kranenko star with Nolan Farrell producing and Derrick Ligas and Peter Szewczyk executive producing.
Behemoth lands on digital platforms on Friday, August 27th, from Level 33 Entertainment. The trailer should be released soon. In the meantime check out the first images from the supernatural horror film.
