In 50 words or less, what’s this film about?
DARK ALP. After having been away for a long time, a hunter returns to his chalet in the Austrian mountains. Up there he discovers terrifying things, but that’s just the beginning of a series of sinister events.

What inspired you to make this film?
The movie "The Dark Valley" from Andreas Prochaska was a big inspiration. It was great to see a western film take place in the middle of the Alps. So we thought, if you can do it with western, why not take a genre like horror and put it in a thumping surrounding like that.
