‘Plaster Rock: Terror on the Tobique’
With an all New Brunswick cast and crew, Plaster Rock: Terror on the Tobique was filmed in the rural community of Riley Brook. The thriller-horror begins with a test of athletics that turns into a quest for survival. Director Jackie Giroux caught wind of a murder story in the area in the 1930s and Plaster Rock became her next project. While four former female and male athletes are set to participate in a wilderness cross-country skiing contest, set in a remote location only accessible by boat, they quickly realize there’s more than $250,000 on the line. It’s their lives. The quest to survive includes a solid cast of New Brunswick actors, including: Jessica Holt, Christine Johnson, Eric Leffler, Michael Mascucci, Frank Molina, Jason Nicholson, Lalesha Railsback, Kelsey Wilson and Peter Loughran.
