Canada based Raven Banner have acquired worldwide sales rights for Brit creature feature The Barge People with a sales launch planned for Cannes next week.
Directed by Charlie Steeds the tale takes place in the British canal system where two couples head off for a relaxing weekend. The tourists aren’t aware they’re are being pursued by flesh eating fish mutants that lurk in the canals waiting for victims.
Written by Christopher Lombard, The Barge People is a throwback coined as The Hills Have Eyes meets H.P Lovecraft.
