An unlikely mixed group of strangers bond during a mile-long highway traffic jam, when a vicious, 60-foot other-worldly monster terrorizes the stretch of unsuspecting stranded drivers and passengers.
A diverse group of strangers become unlikely friends, when a mile-long highway traffic jam bonds them. Mysteriously, a waist-level layer of gas surrounds the area. Unable to proceed forwards or backwards, the group is relieved to learn that the gas is declared non-hazardous, and a dangerous sense of hope blankets the entire trapped community. As the hot summer day turns to night, an unseen and unspeakable monster lurks between the vehicles, under the dense floating gas, stalking individuals. Upon the darkness of night, and the loss of the on-site authorities, the monster with a thousand human arms reveals itself and its capabilities publicly! The hundreds of terrified people take shelter inside or on top of their vehicles, leading to more mayhem and carnage! With members of their core already eaten by the smart vicious creature, the group is led by two very different heroes, moving them to the front (and cause) of the traffic jam, and to a final showdown with the otherworldly beast!
Franky Films optioned the script to The Thousand-Legged Terror, a fantastic film that pays homage to 70s monster flicks. We have shot the proof of concept and we are aiming to produce this film with the collaboration of Atlanta, Gerogia production houses to benefit from their great locations and tax credits. We currently acquired a letter of interest from renowned horror icon, Brad Dourif (The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers, Child's Play) to play one of the lead roles for this ensemble cast. This project will be the first of its kind coming out of Montreal; utilizing Montreal's world renowned VFX and practical effects studios.
