‘Descend into fear’
Black Water: Abyss is a 2020 Australian action-horror feature film about a group of friends exploring a remote cave system in Northern Australia. Unfortunately, they find themselves threatened by a pack of crocodiles.
The movie is a sequel to Black Water (2007) and will apparently “retain the feel of the original, which largely eschewed CGI and was shot with live crocodiles.”
Directed by Andrew Traucki (The Jungle; The Reef; Black Water) from a screenplay written by John Ridley [as Ian John Ridley] and Sarah Smith, the movie stars Jessica McNamee (Mortal Kombat; The Meg; The Loved Ones), Luke Mitchell, Amali Golden (Monster Problems; The Invisible Man) and Anthony J. Sharpe (Hunter’s Moon).
Adventure-loving couple Eric and Jennifer convince their friends, Yolanda and Viktor, to explore a remote, uncharted cave system in the forests of Northern Australia. With a tropical storm approaching, they abseil into the mouth of the cave, knowing they’ll be safe underground. However, when the caves start to flood, tensions rise as oxygen levels fall and the group find themselves lost, disoriented, and trapped.
Little do they know, the dank air and rising water are the least of their worries. They discover the storm has brought in a pack of apex predators – dangerous and hungry crocodiles. As danger mounts, long-kept secrets emerge and the friends turn on each other in a frantic fight for survival…
In the UK, Altitude is releasing the film theatrically on 10th July 2020. Screen Media will release Black Water: Abyss in the USA on August 7, 2020.
