I believe I've said it before, but if you're ever wondering how to make a film that will guarantee my money being slapped down for admittance, you need only take a page out of the Altitude play book. If you make a poster that features tentacles reaching out of the sky, I will see your movie. I will see it as soon as is humanly possible. Such imagery is like crack for someone, like me, with an H.P. Lovecraft addiction.

It's no surprise, then, that I've been looking forward to Kaare Andrews' Altitude ever since first glimpsing the poster, which feels like forever ago at this point. That's why the news that Anchor Bay has picked up Altitude for distribution in the United States and the United Kingdom makes me exceedingly giddy. They haven't dated the film's release yet, but just news that it's finally in a distributors hands is enough to re-ignite my passion for tentacles from the sky reaching toward a plane.

As for the specifics behind Altitude's plot and just what exactly those tentacles are extending from, I remain willfully in the dark beyond knowing that it stars Jessica Lowndes, Ryan Donowho, Landon Liboiron, Jake Weary and Julianna Guill (best recognized as the" stupendous rack" girl from Platinum Dunes' Friday the 13th) and that IMDb briefly sums it up thusly: "After a mysterious malfunction sends their small plane climbing out of control, a rookie pilot and her four teenage friends find themselves trapped in a deadly showdown with a supernatural force."

Below you can find a temp sales trailer for Altitude, though you can expect a more polished version once Anchor Bay gets around to pushing this thing.
