Jessica talks “Altitude” in this article from Hollywood Outbreak. Read an excerpt below or the full version at Hollywood Outbreak!
Altitude is a supernatural thriller that stars Jessica Lowndes as a young woman who has just gotten her pilots license. Bummer for her that on a flight to take her friends out for fun, she runs into a dark cloud – actually a sinister dark cloud – with a gigantic beast floating in it out to annihilate the group.
The actress says she was so serious about the role that she actually took flying lessons to make it appear as realistic as possible. But, the real challenge came from actually shooting the movie in closed quarters in a set designed within the interior of a small airplane.
“For the whole movie we’re sitting in a six-person plane and I think Kaare Andews, the director, did such a great job of keeping it interesting,” she says. “Each angle is different and you kind of forget that you’re still in a plane. He had such a great creative vision, I think that’s what really made the movie.”

Anchor Bay Entertainment announced today the acquisition of the supernatural thriller Altitude through its Anchor Bay Films label. The agreement covers distribution in the U.S. and U.K. as well as Australia and New Zealand. Directed by award-winning graphic novelist Kaare Andrews, the film is written by Paul A. Birkett (The Keeper).
Altitude follows a group of teens on a weekend getaway aboard a small plane that suddenly turns deadly for the rookie pilot, Jessica Lowndes (“90210”), and four young friends: Julianna Guill (Friday the 13th, “90210”), Ryan Donowho (Bandslam, “The O.C.”), Landon Liboiron (“Degrassi: The Next Generation”), and Jake Weary (“As the World Turns”). Minutes after the group takes off, an unexplained malfunction sends the aircraft climbing out of control into the heart of a mysterious storm. Unable to get their bearings or contact the ground, the survivors gradually realize they are locked in combat with a terrifying supernatural force.
“Anchor Bay has an outstanding reputation for releasing films that provide audiences with the thrills and chills they crave, and Altitude is a work that delivers both in a very fresh, new way,” states Kevin Kasha, senior vice president, acquisitions, Anchor Bay Films. “Altitude is edgy, mysterious and has a very hip sensibility. With such a talented young cast, it’s sure to have great teen appeal.”
Executive producers Gary Hamilton and Mike Gabrawy, in a joint statement, said, “Anchor Bay understands the horror genre better than any other company, and they have a great team who are a pleasure to work with; we know we have the best partner in the business to bring Altitude to a wide audience.”
Anchor Bay Entertainment president Bill Clark adds, “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.”
Altitude is produced through the combined efforts of Ian Birkett at Escape Factory, Rob Merilees and Dave Valleau at Foundation Features, Gary Hamilton and Mike Gabrawy at Arclight Films. The deal for Altitude was negotiated by Kevin Kasha, James Shapiro and Richard Turner for Anchor Bay Films: Gary Hamilton, and Mike Gabrawy of Arclight Films.

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.
