I don't even know what to say anymore. Every bit of horror news that percolates up from the sediment of the internet has '3D' tacked onto the end of it. .We're just going to have to deal with it until it dies down. I imagine that it's a prerequisite for a film to get greenlit. Scripts are probably littering the floors of storage rooms for years, only to be resurrected if they can make an extra buck from its third dimensionification (No, that's not a word. Shut-up.).

Now Simon Crane, an erstwhile second-unit director-cum-stuntman, gets his turn at the helm of a picture, the Peak. Carr has helped steer a number of high adrenaline flicks, as you'll see from his IMDB listings, and his pairing with this premise could make for some thrill-driven scares.

According to our fellow degenerates over at Bloody Disgusting, the facts are these:

"The Peak is a 3-D supernatural thriller set in the Himalayas on the world's most dangerous mountain. Its name is Nanga Parbat, but the locals call it "The Killer Mountain" because they believe it is haunted. Although it is only the sixth-highest peak in the world, more climbers have died on its slopes than even on Mount Everest.

This is the story of an American man who led a rescue up the peak a year ago, saw things that defy explanation, and has refused to climb again. Instead, he hides out, hermit-like, in a Himalayan village waiting for the annual visit of his 10-year-old daughter.

And then his worst nightmare happens: her plan crashes atop the peak. She's alive. But an air rescue is out of the question. He is her only chance of survival - he has no choice but to lead a small team on a climb where no-one dares to tread.
