Indie horror film showcases Superstition Mountains’ legend

Dark MountainAs a kid growing up in Arizona I used to be mesmerized by tales that my Grandmother would tell about the Lost Dutchman Mine and the disappearances of those who would look for the miner’s treasure in the maze of the Superstition Mountains of the East Valley. As an adult I often wondered why no one had ever tapped into those legends and made a movie based on those mysterious stories. Well, the wait is finally over.

Indie filmmaker, Tara Anaïse, has written and directed a movie, Dark Mountain, which crosses the more eerie aspects of the Lost Dutchman saga with the modern “found-footage” genre for a film that looks like it will be a lot of fun for horror fans, especially those who are familiar with “The Superstitions.”

You can see Dark Mountain at a local screening on July 29, at the AMC Mesa Grand, but only if they sell enough tickets before July 22. So if you are interested in seeing the movie on the big screen, be sure to purchase your tickets soon at: tugg.com.

You can follow Dark Mountain on Facebook at: facebook.com/darkmountainmovie, or visit the official website at: darkmountainmovie.com. Video-on-demand (VOD) will be available starting August 1, and keep an eye out for the movie on the film festival circuit.
