The Shasta Triangle, (distributed by Giant Pictures), explores mystical and unsettling phenomena and touches on themes of love, loss, friendship, and sacrifice.  The movie is also deeply rooted in unexplained occurrences, conspiracy theories, and fringe science. The five main characters are drawn back together for an adventure that tests the strength of their bonds, and their understanding of the world.

“Never have there been more questions about what’s ‘real’ in our world, as we see in concepts like Simulation Theory, multiple dimensions, the Earth’s ley lines and hot spots, and mysterious ‘Sounds’ heard around the world,” said Barry W. Levy, writer and director of the film.

In The Shasta Triangle, Paula, a woman in her 30’s, returns to her hometown of Shasta, California to uncover the truth about her father’s disappearance when she was a child.

When her childhood friends discover she is back, they join her and travel deep into the Shasta woods, where they are held captive by ancient forces beyond their control forcing them to challenge the very nature of reality.

In a terrifying battle, Paula comes to know the truth of what happened so many years ago, at a cost to herself that she could have never imagined.

His producing partner and story collaborator Helenna Santos said, “I’m a minority female in the industry with a long-time love of sci-fi and horror, specifically shows like The Twilight Zone, Supernatural, and The Magicians. I really wanted to tell a story that could live in a similar world and spotlight a diverse cast of women in a way that hasn’t been seen much in the genre. And with the current hunger for female driven narratives, The Shasta Triangle delivers a complex and compelling story.”

“The Shasta Triangle’s thrilling mix of sci-fi and horror will be irresistible to genre film audiences. We are looking forward to bringing it to digital platforms,” said Courtney Cox, Manager of Content Acquisitions and Marketing at Giant Pictures.

The Shasta Triangle stars Dani Lennon (The Love Witch, FEARnet’s Bite Me), Ayanna Berkshire (Twilight, NBC’s Grimm), Helenna Santos (CW’s The Flash, ABC’s The Good Doctor), Madeline Merritt (The Guest House, Auteur), and Deborah Lee Smith (Here Awhile, Last Three Days).  The movie is produced under Levy and Santos’ Mighty Pharaoh Films banner.
