Dyatlov Pass Incident Poster. Renny Harlin‘s Dyatlov Pass Incident movie poster or the as yet unnamed horror movie Renny Harlin is directing has been released. The film is supposedly going to a modern day investigation of an event that happened in 1959. This event was later dubbed the “Dyatlov Pass Incident”. Because of the investigation aspect of the film, the film sounds like The Blair Witch Project.

The Dyatlov Pass Incident is an real event that transpired:
The Dyatlov Pass incident refers to an event that resulted in the deaths of nine ski hikers in the northern Ural mountains on the night of February 2, 1959. It happened on the east shoulder of the mountain Kholat Syakhl (a Mansi name, meaning Mountain of the Dead). The mountain pass where the incident occurred has since been named Dyatlov Pass after the group’s leader, Igor Dyatlov. The lack of eyewitnesses has inspired much speculation. Soviet investigators determined only that “a compelling unknown force” had caused the deaths. Access to the area was barred for skiers and other adventurers for three years after the incident. The chronology of the incident remains unclear due to the lack of survivors.Investigators at the time determined that the hikers tore open their tent from within, departing barefoot into heavy snow and a temperature of -30°C. Though the corpses showed no signs of struggle, two victims had fractured skulls, two had broken ribs, and one was missing her tongue. Their clothing, when tested, was found to be highly radioactive.
Instead of investigating this event with contemporaray characters, I would rather see a film in 1959 with characters based on the people that died.
On the film’s production and why it is being made:
Producers will be Alexander Rodnyansky, Kia Jam, Harlin and Sergei Bespalov.
Harlin said: “I was fascinated by this story, which remains one of the great unsolved mysteries of modern paranormal lore. The facts, the script and the very dramatic setting convinced me that there is a thrilling movie there, just waiting to rivet audiences.”
Filming on the unnamed film, possibly Dyatlov Pass Incident, will begin in March on location in Russia.
