The new flick from Rammbock director Marvin Kren, Blood Glacier (aka The Station), will be hitting DVD across the pond on January 20, 2014, and right now we've got a giant sized image gallery and more for you! Dig it!
Janek is a technician on a climate observation station high up in the Alps. He is a loner; the regularly changing scientists who share the rocky idyll with him are just tolerated by him. Making things more difficult is the approaching visit of the environment minister, which brings rivalries at the station to the boil.
So everyone involved is grateful when their barren routine is interrupted by a strange discovery. A red liquid pours from a nearby glacier, melted free from the ice crust shrinking with climate change. This »

Blood Glacier aka The Station will arrive on DVD to the UK on January 29 2014. The film comes from director Marvin Kren who is best known for Rammbock Berlin Undead which we gave a 4.5 out of 5. Synopsis Janek (Gerhard Liebmann) is part of a team working at a weather research station in the Alps where they are investigating climate change. They discover a glacier that has been dyed red by a mysterious substance which turns out to be organic and has the ability to transform both animals and humans into terrifying mutations. With their lives under threat the situation gets only gets worse for the crew before government official Bodicek (Brigitte Kren) and her team which includes Janeks former girlfriend Tanja (Edita Malovcic) »
Rammbock director Marvin Kren turns his hand to an ecological themed monster-movie that sees a group of technicians and scientists at an alpine research station discover a glacier of blood high in the mountains. Testing the red liquid oozing from the ice, they discover a new alien organism with the astonishing capability of transforming the local wildlife into horrific hybrids and monster mutations. With the Minister of the Environment hiking to the station for an official visit, many frightening questions must be answered if the bickering team are to survive and cope with the giant wood lice, the beetle-foxes, crossbred flying predators and much, much worse.
It’s hard to believe that The Station is actually Kren’s feature-film debut. 2010′s Rammbock was such a cause-celebre that it can be easy »

After several shorts, Austrian helmer Martin Kren got horror fans’ attention with 2010′s hourlong “Rammbock,” a sufficiently offbeat and character-focused spin on the zombie-siege formula. He makes a competent transition to full feature length with “The Station,” but this time there’s not much novelty to regular collaborator Benjamin Hessler’s more routine mutant-monster-menace script. Set at a climate-research center high in the Alps, the pic hits a pitch of hysteria about halfway through, and unfortunately stays on that plane to diminishing effect until the end. Some theatrical sales are likely, but wider exposure will come via home formats.
Crusty technician Janek (Gerhard Liebmann) has signed on four years in a row at this isolated outpost, presumably still in retreat from a wounding breakup with a scientist once posted there. When a mysterious red tincture is discovered on a nearby glacier, it turns out to contain unique organisms that can infect multiple hosts, »

Copy Creature: Kren’s Sophomore Feature a Hybrid Derivative
Following his Berlin set zombie debut Rammbock, Austrian director Marvin Kren returns with The Station, an eco-horror-ish creature feature which was originally titled Glazius, now saddled with a downgraded vagary of a title that neither exudes originality or menace. Likewise, the film immediately establishes itself as a curious amalgamation of classic genre titles, with several of its select scenes blatant copies of memorable sequences from other films, most notably, John Carpenter’s The Thing (and no, Kren doesn’t seem to be making a meta statement by giving us a copy of a copy of a copy). While the film isn’t a complete misfire, its ever so light creature twist isn’t enough to make this memorable, and unless you’ve had the misfortune of never seeing anything else in the same vein, the film won’t really feel satisfactory »

The story is set in the German Alps as a trio of scientists and a technician discover that a rapidly retreating glacier has begun to leak a strange red liquid that seems to be affecting local wildlife.

All of the ingredients are in place for The Station to be a thrilling exercise in crowd pleasing horror. You've got a hot young director in Rammbock's Marvin Kren being given a significant boost in resources to prove what he can do. You've got an absolutely gorgeous location to spread across the screen and give the film scope. And you've got a compelling central premise that promises thrills and chills a'plenty with a multitude of bizarre creatures for shock value. It's all there, all of it driving expectations that are never met with the film sadly ending up as just a pale shadow of the superior pictures which are its primary influences.The action takes place high in the Austrian Alps, with a team of environmental...

Announcing nine out of ten titles from its 2013 lineup, Tiff’s Midnight Madness blazes in with a fever pitch, promising to be one of the most notable programs we’ve seen from the most perennially pleasing film festival sidebar dedicated to the horror genre.
Colin Geddes has placed the latest film from Lucky McKee, All Cheerleaders Die (co-directed by Chris Sivertson of I Know Who Killed Me fame) as the section’s opener and this marks the first time for horror alum McKee in the lineup (he usually premieres at Sundance, and if you remember, his last film, 2011’s The Woman got quite the notable reaction there). While Siverston’s name as co-director may arouse some naysaying, McKee is an excellent and exciting name to open with (see pic above).
