What do you mean you don't think 'Belgium' when you think 'horror'? Okay, fine, the nation known best for its monastic beer has never been much of a player in the horror scene but director Jonas Govaerts is looking to change that with Cub. With a string of (rightfully) acclaimed short films behind him, Govaerts is now preparing his debut feature with a talented team around him including Bullhead cinematographer Nicolas Karakatsanis and executive producer Richard Christian Matheson.
Cub a horror movie about Sam, a twelve-year-old imaginative boy who
goes to camp in the woods with his pack of cub scouts. Together with the
other cubs and the leaders of the pack Sam finds himself in a dark wood
where a psychopathic poacher and his masked helper live. What the cubs
don't know is that the poacher has laid out ingenious, lethal traps all
over the forest.
Yep, Govaerts is getting his slasher on with this one and the production is running a crowd funding campaign with all money raised going directly towards creating the traps used in the film. Want to know more? Check out the video below and the IndieGoGo page here.
