The La Brea Tar Pits in Los Angeles have found themselves at the center of the story for a new horror movie coming out titled Tar. The story revolves around the legends of an ancient creature that awakens thanks to some underground construction and terrorizes those that get in its way.
Here’s the synopsis that was released:
For 40,000 years, a long forgotten wetland teemed with ancient creatures, but now all that’s left is a pit of hot, sticky tar surrounded by a vast urban landscape. For Barry Greenwood and his son Zach, there’s not much left of their family business either. With the city’s subway expanding under their feet and their office building slated for demolition, Barry, Zach and their employees are forced to shut down their shop and move out. Three family generations and three lifetimes of hard work to be turned into rubble. But when something primal is awoken by the underground construction, a night of somber packing becomes a desperate fight for survival.
The movie was written and directed by Aaron Wolf and it stars Timothy Bottoms, Graham Greene, Tiffany Shepis, and Max Perlich. It looks like it could be a fun low-budget horror movie.
It’s coming to Drive-Ins and theaters on October 2nd. It will then be available on Digital and On Demand on October 20th.
