As the COVID-19 pandemic forces creatives around the world to find new opportunities to share their work, Arrow Video has announced the virtual premiere of Lake Michigan Monster, an action-packed black-and-white nautical nightmare.
Ahead of the film's arrival on the Arrow Video Channel, Altavod will host a 24 hour virtual premiere for the film on July 31st, complete with a filmmaker introduction and a prerecorded Q&A with Ryland Tews, Beulah Peters and Mike Cheslik. Tickets for the virtual premiere are available now.
Lake Michigan Monster will then be available on Arrow Video Channel and Digital HD August 3rd in the UK and the US.
"All aboard! The combined spirits of H.P. Lovecraft, early Sam Raimi and Mystery Science Theater 3000 inhabit this action-packed tale of nautical derring-do and monster mayhem!"
In the film, "On the shores of Lake Michigan, the eccentric Captain Seafield (Ryland Brickson Cole Tews, who also writes and directs) enlists a colourful crew of misfits in a bid to slay the hellish sea monster that prowls the murky depths. But as Seafield’s obsession with exacting revenge on the creature that killed his father threatens to consume him, can weapons expert Sean Shaughnessy (Erick West), sonar whiz Nedge Pepsi (Beulah Peters) and former N.A.V.Y. – Nautical Athletes and Venture Yunit – officer Dick Flynn (Daniel Long) hold the show together?"
Lake Michigan Monsters is an absurdist urban legend guaranteed to appeal to the big kid in all of us.
