100% Entertainment is raising the fear factor on environmental issues by developing a slate of fright-generating ecologically themed thrillers to be produced under a new division of the company called Echoes Of Fearô. To insure that the “Green” issues are presented with dramatic realism, the company is consulting with environmental agencies and concerned citizens of the entertainment industry, most notably environmental activist and multi-talented actor Ed Begley Jr., with regard to the content of each picture. Classic horror/monster films of the 1950’s like Godzilla, Them and Invasion Of The Body Snatchers have stood the test of time. Lingering in our consciousness not only because they gave us a good scare but also because they were allegories of the times-the fear of Communism and the anxiety of The Atomic Age. The twenty first century presents us with unprecedented challenges, global warming, the pollution of our air and water and our ever-increasing dependence on fossil fuel. Echoes Of Fearô taps into these concerns with stories that have strong moral centers, multi-ethnic casting, dynamic female heroines and state of the art special effects. And 100% Entertainment is putting its money where its conscience is by pledging 20% of its net profits from Echoes Of Fearô to ecological and environmental organizations around the world. The first two Echoes Of Fearô being readied for production are:
Salvation -- When crude oil prices skyrocket past two hundred dollars a barrel, the U.S. government determines it has no alternative but to tap into the rich oil reserves buried beneath Alaska's frozen tundra. With construction nearing completion a group of heavily armed eco-terrorists storms the compound, taking the crewmembers hostage. When the terrorists blow up the rigs, “for the good of the planet”, they accidentally release a ravenous prehistoric creature from its cryogenic tomb, resulting in a threat to mankind’s survival far greater than anyone could ever have imagined.
Crush Depth -- It’s an underwater war of the worlds when a team of oceanographers diving into the uncharted depths of the Atlantic Ocean comes face-to-face with a ferocious amphibious alien species. In a race against global devastation, the oceanographers must prevent the aliens from launching an invasion that would enslave the people of earth and strip-mine all life sustaining nutrients, minerals and bacteria from our oceans.
