Anchor Bay has locked down North American, Australian, and U.K. distribution rights to director Kaare Andrews’ in-flight frightener Altitude. The film stars “90210″ babe Jessica Lowndes and Julianna Guill, endearingly known to horror fans as the topless chick from the Friday the 13th reboot.
Says Anchor Bay president Bill Clark:
Altitude is a film that seems destined to fly high with anyone who likes a good scare. Just like The Blair Witch Project or Paranormal Activity, this is a new type of high concept thriller which is loaded with attitude and style.
Lowndes horror creds include The Haunting of Molly Hartley, Autopsy, and the Masters of Horror episode “Dance of the Dead.”
In addition to Friday the 13th, Guill has headlined MTV’s My Super Psycho Sweet 16 and stars opposite Ashley Greene and Tom Felton in director Todd Lincoln’s upcoming ghost story Apparition.
