AREA 407 flew under the radar (it was released by IFC and is currently available on Netflix Instant) with little fanfare, but AREA 407: PART II is coming anyways, and it looks like my kind of direct-to-video trash! I’ve been wrong before, but I imagine a film with zombies & dinosaurs trying to kill anything with a pulse should be a lot of fun. Check out the promo trailer below, and marvel at the use of sound effects & prop head from JURASSIC PARK!
The original Area 407 features lost footage too real for reality and too disturbing for fiction. The film opens with two teenagers flying from New York to Los Angeles on New Year’s Eve, whose nightmare begins when their plane hits extreme turbulence mid-flight. The plane crashes in a remote government-testing area and the handful of survivors from the crash, bloody and disoriented, are pursued in the darkness by unknown predators that are part of the government’s top-secret Mesa Experiment. The film takes moviegoers on a whirlwind ride, with a twist ending that will leave you breathless, shocked, and terrified.
AREA 407: PART II should be crash landing on VOD soon.
