First 4K Ultra-HD Horror Movie Lurking14 Jan, 2014 By: Erik Gruenwedel
The 4K Ultra-HD hype continues as independent horror film 'Muck' is championing itself as the first movie in the genre available in 4K.
4K technology offers video resolution of 3,840 x 2,160 pixels or 8.3 million pixels — four times the number of pixels of standard full HD.
Directed by Steve Wolsh, Muck is described as a “highly stylized and hyper-violent middle chapter” of a horror trilogy that unfolds like a “love letter” to horror fanatics. It was filmed completely in Ultra-HD and is currently in post-production. Theatrical release is set for July 4, with retail dates pending.
The cast includes Kane Hodder (Friday the 13th Part VII: The New Blood) and 2012 Playboy Playmate of the Year Jaclyn Swedberg, as well as Lachlan Buchanan (“Newcastle,” “Pretty Little Liars"), Lauren Francesca, Puja Mohindra, Bryce Draper, Grant Alan Ouzts, Stephanie Danielson and Laura Jacobs (Fox’s “Almost Human”).
