Six college students go into the wetlands to find their missing professor after he takes off in search of the mythical and deadly monster known as the ‘Swamp Freak’.
Not much information accompanied the trailer for Swamp Freak. According to IMDb, a projected release date will be sometime in 2017. The deliverable platforms for DeCoteau’s upcoming creature feature is also a mystery. Swamp Freak is the latest release from Rapid Heart Pictures LLC. Therefore DeCoteau’s film eyes either a VOD or DVD distribution.
As void of information, the trailer announcement was the trailer for Swamp Freak. The total running time for the promotional clip is one minute fifteen seconds. Ominous music greets the viewer and plays for the duration of the clip. There is a lack of dialogue yet it is doubtful this production is a silent film.
The footage with its subtleties supports the synopsis well. Most filmmakers choose not to reveal the terror within trailers. Its wise to give a sense of mystery for a successful final reveal. DeCoteau chooses otherwise. The creature haunting the group of campers lacks fright in its silhouette profile.
At first glance, the creature appears to be a man in a ghillie suit.
It is evident this monster does not fall into any cryptozoological category. Documented record of a mutated hunter or sniper terrorizing areas is nonexistent. Unless a backstory surfaces for the Swamp Freak we’re left with unanswered questions.
Names for some of the cast members superimpose on screen with dramatic flair. It is good to see notable performers in horror cinema be a part of this production. Yet, it would be preferable to showcase their lines as well.
