Looking as though it is going all ‘The Thing’ on us, Austrian flick The Station seems set to offer up a potent mix of eye-catching gore and frosty locations.

Set amongst a research crew busy at work in the German alps, things take a turn for the very nasty when they discover that a glacier is leaking a liquid that appears capable of mutating the local wildlife.

Naturally this turns the wildlife into ravenous, bloodthirsty creatures – with the research crew seemingly on the menu.

Directed by Marvin Kren, who put together solid virus thriller Rammbock back in 2010, The Station stars the likes of Gerhard Liebmann, Edita Malovcic and Brigitte Kren.

The trailer seems to suggest we’ll get plenty of action, even if it does lose points for shamelessly lifting the ‘no one can hear you scream’ tagline.

The Station plays at London’s Frightfest all-nighter on October 26.
