Camping is always a good time for friends to get out in nature, get to know each other better, and apparently have your blood drained by giant ticks. The new trailer for Quiver will make you re-think your next camping trip. Director Trevor Zurkan taps into a childhood fear of getting ticks in the woods and having them suck out all your blood only these ticks are giant.
Zurkan’s directorial debut looks to be great B-Movie monster fun will most likely scare us and make us never go camping again. Despite the fact this is Zurkan’s first stab at directing, he is not a stranger to film with a background in acting. And in the true independent spirit Zurkan wears many hats in the creation of this project with job titles as Special Effects Coordinator, Actor, Editor, Producer, and Director. If there is one take away from this trailer, if you like it or not, it is important to understand that these independent filmmakers went out and made something, and Zurkan created a film that will likely be a lot of fun.
If you browse through Quiver‘s Facebook, it documents the interesting and troubling journey independent filmmakers are used to. From missing deadlines to hard drive failures to budget issues they persevered and came out with a final product in which they are so excited to show the world.
The official synopsis for Quiver is as follows:
Rudy and Claire decide to go on a camping trip for their anniversary. Unbeknownst to them, there are mutated ticks lurking in the same woods, ready to drain them dry.
The film stars Robert Beck, Lisa Marie DiGiacinto, Andrew Paulsen, Dave DelBen, Tracey Stevens, and much more.
