Novel Adaptation ‘Mark of Kane’ Gets New Teaser Poster

Ahead of the Fantasia Frontieres Co-Production Market, a new teaser poster has just been released for Mark of Kane, the feature-film adaption of New York Times bestselling-author Michael Prescott’s horror novel Kane (originally published as Douglas Borton). The poster is by prolific designer Omar Hauksson (The Raid 1 & 2, Proxy, Stage Fright, Resolution):

SYNOPSIS: Kane is a force of nature. Walking out of the desert into the dying town of Tuskett, which only 23 people still call home, he has only one purpose: to kill every resident. Relentless, stealthy, and without mercy, Kane won’t stop until every last man, woman and child is nothing but a memory. Soon the surviving townspeople must band together to fight this seemingly-unstoppable evil, or die trying. Brutal, action-packed, and most importantly, character-driven, Mark of Kane is a thrilling story of survival at any cost.

Mark of Kane is one of the ‘Off-Frontieres’ Selections at Fantasia Film Festival’s upcoming Frontieres International Co-Production Market. The adaption is co-scripted by Serena Whitney (writer at DreadCentral) and Justin McConnell (The Collapsed, Skull World). Whitney and McConnell also co-produce, along with Canadian-producer Avi Federgreen (Still Mine, One Week, High Life). The team is rounded out by two highly-respected genre directors, who currently serve as consulting producers: Adam Mason (Blood River, The Devil’s Chair, Broken), and George Mihalka (My Bloody Valentine, 24 Hour Rental). A director has yet to be named.
