Director Gerald Rascionato has transitioned from deep-sea predators to a prehistoric one.

Rascionato, whose shark thriller CAGE DIVE was released as OPEN WATER 3, has now helmed and co-written/co-produced (with Joel Hogan) a film called CLAW, set to be released by ITN Distribution. Chynna Walker, Richard Rennie, Mel Mede and Ken Mertz star in the movie, which is about two friends who are forced to spend the night in a ghost town, and find themselves hunted by a vicious velociraptor. Check out the poster below and stay tuned for more on CLAW as it nears release.
