Midnight has landed U.S. rights to horror-thriller "The Station
," two days after the film's Midnight Madness world premiere at the Toronto Film Festival
directed from a screenplay by Benjamin Hessler. "The Station" stars Gerhard Liebmann, Edita Malovcic, Hille Beseler and Peter Knaack and was produced by Helmut Grasser.
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.
Kren broke into horror films in 2011 with his debut feature "Rammbock."
The deal was negotiated by Arianna Bocco for IFC with Sebastien Chesneau of Rezo on behalf of the filmmakers.
