SYNOPSIS: After one of her tribe sets an American camp ablaze, a young Mohawk warrior finds herself pursued by a contingent of military renegades set on revenge. Fleeing deep into the woods they call home, Oak and Calvin, along with their British companion Joshua, must now fight back against the bloodthirsty Colonel Holt and his soldiers – using every resource both real and supernatural that the winding forest can offer.
From Ted Geoghegan, the director of We Are Still Here, Mohawk will hit select theaters and VOD on March 2nd. Starring Kaniehtiio Horn (Hemlock Grove), Justin Rain (Fear the Walking Dead), and Eamon Farren (Twin Peaks: The Return) along with Noah Segan (Looper), Jonathan Huber (WWE’s Luke Harper), Robert Longstreet (I Don’t Feel at Home in this World Anymore), and Sheri Foster (Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt). Dark Sky Films has released new poster art and an official trailer.
As you can see in the trailer, Mohawk looks intense. It takes place over a single day during the War of 1812. The press release describes it as Last of the Mohicans meets Last House on the Left. The film is a co-production of Dark Sky films (House of the Devil, Stake Land) and Snowfort Pictures (Starry Eyes, Cheap Thrills), so you know this is quality art. I’ll be writing a full review of the film after I see it next month at The Palace in Syracuse.
