Throughout history we have seen different styles of horror film, and each decade has either catapulted or created something new, and Taylor Scott Olson and Livingston Oden’s Solitude, will take us back through time and unleash an intriguing anthology.
Thanks to our good friend Avery, for the heads up, we have scored the first details for the upcoming anthology film.
The film is set to star Armin Habibovich, Victoria LaChelle, Brent Latchaw, Alex Cotant, Glen Stone, Kelly Lavasseur, Amy Correll, and Nicole Kruex.
Synopsis: Solitude is a horror feature film that takes place over a span of 75 years on a mysterious riverfront piece of land where an ancient evil dwells. The story will be told in six segments, each of them taking place in a different time period and each of them made to look like horror films of when they take place.
In 2014, James Erikson finds an old storage locker filled with journals and newspapers of his family’s history. As he researches it, he finds out about the evil that his family has tried to contain for several generations.
Besides present day, the other segments in this film are as follows:
1939 – Frank Erikson is a scientist doing research in North Dakota when a mysterious monster attacks his research team. This will be reminiscent of classic monster movies of the time period, such as “The Mummy” or “Frankenstein”.
1961 – Frank Erikson returns to the Solitude River to try to destroy the monster once and for all. This segment is influenced by Alfred Hitchcock’s films, as well as other B-movie’s of the 50’s and 60’s.
1977 – The 1977 segment follows Donald Erikson, Frank’s son who is a real estate broker and is planning on building river homes in Solitude, but does not realize what the land holds. It is in the style of supernatural horror films of the 70’s, such as “The Omen” or “The Exorcist”.
1986 – And here’s the slasher! A group of college friends are planning on spending a weekend camping and partying near the Solitude River, not knowing of the evils that dwell there. This segment takes influence from classic 80’s slashers such as the “Friday the 13th” or “Nightmare on Elm Street” series.
1999 – The last segment before present day is going to be found footage, similar to “The Blair Witch Project”. It follows a group of film students who heard the rumors of the deaths near Solitude and are shooting a documentary about them.
Hopefully they can pull this one off. If they can deliver on each segment and live up to what they have planned, this could be a very exciting film. Watch this space.
