KILLER MOUNTAIN and GHOST STORM on dvd

I just noticed that the two SYFY movies that Aaron was in are for sale over on Amazon.com for $12.99 each if anyone is interested. And yes, they are laughably bad cheesy b-grade movies but that’s part of the fun of watching them :)

KILLER MOUNTAIN: Exclusive Pics from Fangoria

FANGORIA have posted some exclusive photos from KILLER MOUNTAIN. Aaron is in two of the photos. In the accompanying article it reads…

“Fortunately, we had a great cast that always kept things fun, even in the worst of locations. Aaron Douglas and Paul Campbell, both from BATTLESTAR GALACTICA, were hell-bent on sneaking BATTLESTAR references into the movie. I’ll be curious to see how many of those the audience catches.”

We have already heard Aaron say FRAK in the trailer. Let’s see how many other BSG references we can spot while watching.

 

Director climbs a “KILLER MOUNTAIN” for Syfy; exclusive pics
By: Michael Gingold
Date: August 26, 2011

After first winning attention on the genre scene for his 2005 chiller SHALLOW GROUND, director Sheldon Wilson has been busy bringing terror to the Syfy channel with the likes of CARNY, MOTHMAN and RED: WEREWOLF HUNTER. For his latest movie for the network, premiering this Saturday at 9/8 Central, he went up a KILLER MOUNTAIN and lived to tell Fango the tale, and send a few exclusive photos.

“KILLER MOUNTAIN very nearly was…almost,” he tells us. “We shot the majority of the movie just outside the small town of Hope, British Columbia, doing the mountain-climbing sequences at a spot known as the Hope Slide. In 1965, the entire side of the mountain there slid off, completely burying a mile-long stretch of the highway, trapping and killing four people in their cars who were never recovered. The place is creepy as hell. A few weeks after we finished shooting, another massive piece of the mountain slid off. Luckily, there were no new additions to the four unlucky souls already buried there.”

The terror in KILLER MOUNTAIN is more fantastical: slithery monsters that lurk within Gangkhar Puensum, the world’s highest unclimbed mountain, in Bhutan. A team led by an experienced climber, Ward (Aaron Douglas), and hired by a billionaire (Andrew Airlee) attempts an ascent in search of a missing research expedition that was headed by Ward’s ex-girlfriend (genre stalwart Emmanuelle Vaugier), and has a series of deadly encounters with the creature. The location may have been foreboding, but Wilson says, “Fortunately, we had a great cast that always kept things fun, even in the worst of locations. Aaron Douglas and Paul Campbell, both from BATTLESTAR GALACTICA, were hell-bent on sneaking BATTLESTAR references into the movie. I’ll be curious to see how many of those the audience catches.”

Evidently, those actors had a better time than a star who shot a movie in the area three decades ago. “Hope, as it turns out, is the same small town Sylvester Stallone shot to hell in FIRST BLOOD,” Wilson reveals. “One of the locals told me that Stallone had to stop going out to the bars there at night, because there were always two or three local guys who wanted to be able to say they were the ones who kicked Rocky’s ass. Fortunately for us, we had a much better experience with the nightlife in Hope—as little of it as there was.”

In the last photo that’s Aaron (in the grey hoodie) sitting on the rock. Look down from where the rock climbers are.

KILLER MOUNTAIN: New Trailer

Below is the new trailer for KILLER MOUNTAIN (airing Saturday August 27th @ 9/8c on SyFy).



LOL at “Let’s get the frak out of here”. So who wins for best BSG reference from a BSG actor?
Click on the links below for video clips.

Paul Campbell – Almost Heroes
James Callis – Eureka

I want to give it to Paul Campbell because I remember laughing so much when I watched this. But I guess that technically Aaron wins because he said Frak.

KILLER MOUNTAIN: Trailer and Synopsis

I found the synopsis and trailer for KILLER MOUNTAIN. This is the SyFy Movie that Aaron filmed in June. Sorry, I have no idea when it will air. But as soon as I hear anything, I’ll let everyone know.

Synopsis: Located in Bhutan, Gangkhar Puensum (“Killer Mountain”) is the highest unclimbed mountain in the world. According to local legend, 6000 meters is the abode of the Gods, and trespassing is strictly prohibited as a matter of religious law. But when a research expedition is lost, billionaire WALTER BURTON (Andrew Airlee) hires WARD DONOVAN (Aaron Douglas), the best climber in the business to lead a rescue mission. Ward initially resists until he learns that Burton had hired his ex-girlfriend KATE (Emmanuelle Vaugier) to lead the missing group. Soon Ward and his team find themselves on a flight to Bhutan. Upon arriving at base camp, they hear Kate and her team’s frantic final message for help. It sounds like there was something else up there, something attacking them, but what could it be? With Burton’s son CREIGHTON along for the climb (Burton stays at camp), Ward and his team begin their ascent. But they quickly realize why Gangkhar Puensum has never been successfully climbed. Some of them won’t be coming back alive. Unbeknownst to them, something slithers through the shadows and under the ice, following them, waiting to strike…

Synopsis: In a dramatic tale of extreme survival and mysterious legend, Ward Donovan, and his team of expert climbers are hired by billionaire Walter Burton to rescue a research team lost on the world’s highest unclimbed mountain. But amidst deep crevasses and steep rock faces, Ward discovers an abandoned temple complex… Is this Shangri-La, the mythical land of eternal life – the secrets of which Burton would attain at any cost – or is this something far more sinister?

Starring: Aaron Douglas, Emmanuelle Vaugier, Paul Campbell, Torrance Coombs, Andrew Airlee
Director: Sheldon Wilson
Producer: Jeff Schenck

UPDATE: Here are some more synopses for KILLER MOUNTAIN.

In Bhutan, creepy, slithery and deadly monsters lurk deep within Gangkhar Puensum, the world’s highest unclimbed mountain. When a team of experienced climbers led by Ward Donovan (Aaron Douglas, Battlestar Galactica) attempt to climb the mountain in search of a missing research expedition, the team discovers the legendary Shangri-La – making the most significant archaeological discovery in years. But their amazement is short lived when they come face-to-face with the deadly creature protecting it. Will they get out alive and spread word of their mystifying discovery or succumb to the forbidden mountain for eternity?

Aaron to star in the movie KILLER MOUNTAIN

Aaron has been cast as the lead character Ward Donovan in a MOW called Killer Mountain. Filming is from May 17th – June 4th, 2010. Aaron starts filming next Tuesday.
Paul Campbell (Billy Keikeya on BSG) is also in the movie. Aaron says it’s a “scifi MOW” but with the name ‘Killer Mountain’, I’m wondering if it’s a SyFy channel movie :)

Paul Campbell is playing Tyler.
Torrance Coombs is playing Chance.
Andrew Airlie is playing Walter Burton.
Emmanuelle Vaugier is playing Kate Pratt. Kate is the ex-girlfriend of Aaron’s character.

 

UPDATE (June 1st): Killer Mountain Synopsis

The in-demand actor is also currently working on an MOW entitled ‘Killer Mountain’, also starring Emmanuelle Vaugier and Aaron Douglas. Andrew plays Walter Burton, a wealthy industrialist who sponsors a climbing expedition in Bhutan. The mission goes awry and he has to hire another expert climber to rescue the members of the first climb team. With ulterior motives at play, danger and mayhem ensue. ‘Killer Mountain’ is produced by Chris Bartleman and Jeff Schenck, and directed by Sheldon Wilson. Filming is taking place in Hope and Squamish, British Columbia, this spring.
