A new trailer has arrived for Harbinger Down ahead of the film's release tomorrow. Also in this round-up: a new teaser trailer for Cherry Tree, The Barn Indiegogo campaign, and DVD release details for horror-thriller Run, Hide, Die.

Harbinger Down: "A group of grad students have booked passage on the fishing trawler Harbinger to study the effects of global warming on a pod of Orcas in the Bering Sea. When the ship’s crew dredges up a recently thawed piece of old Soviet space wreckage, things get downright deadly. It seems that the Russians experimented with tardigrades, tiny resilient animals able to withstand the extremes of space radiation. The creatures survived, but not without a mutation. Now the crew is exposed to aggressively mutating organisms. And after being locked in ice for three decades, the creatures aren’t about to give up the warmth of human companionship.

Starring: Lance Henriksen, Camille Balsamo, Matt Winston, Reid Collums, Milla Bjorn, Winston James Francis, Mike Estime, and Edwin Bravo.

Cherry Tree: "Faith’s world is turned upside down after she finds out that her beloved father is dying. When the mysteriously alluring Sissy Young becomes her field hockey coach, Faith finds a compassionate spirit and much-needed mother figure. Little does she know that Sissy is the head of a centuries-old witches’ coven that uses the fruit of an ancient cherry tree in a secret ritual that restores life to the dead and dying. Offering to cure her father in exchange for a child, Sissy strikes a bargain with Faith, who suddenly finds herself pregnant with a baby that’s growing at an alarming rate. But with the clock to the child’s birth ticking down and the true intention of Sissy’s plans for humanity becoming more apparent, Faith and her father must stand together in order to save both their lives. From David Keating, the critically acclaimed director of Wake Wood."

Distributed by Dark Sky Films and written by Brendan McCarthy, Cherry Tree stars Naomi Battrick, Patrick Gibson, Sam Hazeldine, and Leah McNamara.


The Barn: Press Release: "Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania - From writer-director Justin M. Seaman, THE BARN is a new film created to give fans of 1980s horror a bloody good time. An Indiegogo campaign for finishing costs is currently underway (ending August 16, 2015), offering contributors many fun retro perks for backing the project. The film’s second trailer has also been released this week introducing the film’s main baddies- Hallowed Jack, The Candycorn Scarecrow and The Boogeyman.

On Halloween night in 1989, best friends Sam and Josh are trying to enjoy what’s left of their final All Hallow’s Eve before graduating high school. However, diabolical trouble arises when they and their friends take a detour on the way to a rock concert. After finding an old abandoned barn and awakening the evil inside, it’s up to Sam and Josh to find a way to protect the group by defeating the demonic creatures that lurk within THE BARN. The film stars Mitchell Musolino, Will Stout, Lexi Dripps, Cortland Woodard, Nikki Darling, Nickolaus Joshua and Ari Lehman (the first Jason Voorhees from ‘Friday the 13th’).

Nevermore Production Films has gained attention through its successful series of promotional avenues, such as the retro-style poster by Sadist Art Design’s Marc Schoenbach, an original film score provided by Rocky Gray (former member of the Grammy award- winning rock band Evanescence), and the contributions of Screen Junkies’ Honest Trailers’, Jon Bailey, who provides the voice-over track for both official trailers.

Additionally, the film’s 1980’s style marketing merchandise consists of a Big Box VHS, action figures, T-shirts, a motion picture soundtrack on vinyl/cassette/cd, NES style 8 bit video game and a board game with art provided by Horror Hound/Scream Factory artist Nathan Thomas Milliner.

THE BARN is scheduled to premiere in Pittsburgh in October of 2015 if the Indiegogo campaign is successful.
