There is Something in the Water with James Ojala's Strange Nature: A Preview

Tagline: "Our Waters are Hiding a Killer."

Strange Nature is a horror film from spfx guru James Ojala (Hellboy II: The Golden Army ). In Strange Nature, a real life ecological disaster is brought to the screen. In 1995, deformed frogs began to appear in Minnesota ponds. The film shows those deformities in some of the characters! Strange Nature stars: Stephen Tobolowsky (Groundhog Day), Tiffany Shepis (Victor Crowley) Carlos Alazraqui and John Hennigan. A trailer for the film was released late last year (found below). Now, a concept poster is available, here.

For more on the story, the real life events for the film were investigated by the U.S. government, until 2001. A cause, for the amphibious deformities, was never found. Within the film, a single mother struggles to deal with a number of strange incidents. She must protect her son as a small town, in Minnesota, begins to turn into something unrecognizable.

Strange Nature was completed earlier this year. Currently, the film is being promoted by sales agent Devilworks. This film is expected to show at the American Film Market, in November. A release date will soon follow. For now, indie horror fans can find the film's trailer below, in case they missed it. The concept poster shows actress Lisa Sheridan as Kim Sweet, armed and ready to fire. All of the latest details, on Strange Nature, are hosted here.
