Check Out The Teaser Poster & 3 New Stills For THE DROWNSMAN

Check out this crazy good teaser poster for Chad Archibald's upcoming horror flick The Drownsman! That is fantastic and creepy stuff. We also have three new stills from the film to share with you as well. You will find those and a larger version of the teaser poster below the official press release.

THE DROWNSMAN is a new horror/suspense film that echoes the legendary era of horror movie making when films such as Nightmare on Elm Street, Halloween and Hellraiser haunted movie theatres everywhere. Below is the official teaser poster for THE DROWNSMAN as well as the first exclusive stills from the film. THE DROWNSMAN is set to have its market release at this year's Cannes Film Market.

After almost drowning in a lake, Madison finds herself bound to a life of fear. Unable to describe what happened to her during the moments she was underwater, Madison begins to develop hydrophobia: an abnormal fear of water. Crippled by her post trauma, Madison attempts to shut out the world around her but, her fear intensifies when she begins to be haunted by the vision of an evil figure. After watching her struggle for over a year, Madison's four friends stage an intervention in a desperate attempt to help. In doing so, they accidentally open a floodgate to a dark place where none of them are safe. As Madison and her friends dive deeper into the dark history of the evil that haunts them, they're dragged one by one to a horrifying place where they may never return.

"We set out to make a film that created a new supernatural villain like the classic horror films of Clive Barker and Wes Craven, something that has become rare in the horror industry over the last decade," explains writer/director Chad Archibald. "Similar to Freddy Kruger, Michael Myers, Pinhead and Jason Voorhees, we wanted to create a villain with a rich history and a juicy hook that could make an appearance in a few viewers nightmares."

Directed by Chad Archibald (Neverlost, Ejecta). Written by Cody Calahan (Antisocial) and Chad Archibald. Starring Michelle Mylett (Antisocial), Caroline Korycki, Gemma Bird Matheson, Sydney Kondruss, Clare Bastable and in the horrifying title role, Ry Barrett (Neverlost, Kingdom Come, If A Tree Falls). Produced by Christopher Giroux (Antisocial, Dead All Night) and Chad Archibald. Executive Producers of the film are the team at Breakthrough Entertainment: Peter Williamson, Ira Levy, Marina Cordoni, Nat Abrahams and Michael McGuigan.

The Drownsman will screen at the Market in Cannes this year. No word yet on when the film will have its World Premiere. Word is coming down the pipes (pun intended) that there will be a trailer closer to Cannes.

    I guess they mean Aquaphobia? "Hydrophobia" is rabies.
