Jim Ojala Makes Directorial Debut with STRANGE NATURE

Acclaimed FX artist Jim Ojala makes his directorial debut with Strange Nature, an eco-thriller released on DVD and VOD October 2. The practical effects are sure to be killer when you’ve got an artist who brought life to the likes of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Hellboy II: The Golden Army, and Thor both directing and coordinating makeup and creature FX.

ITN distribution and Ojala Productions have released the film. Check out the trailer and full release below!


This October, It’s man versus nature when wrestling superstar John Hennigan and acclaimed actor Stephen Tobolowsky (‘’Silicon Valley’’, ‘’Deadwood’’) play ‘leapfrog’ with mutated amphibians in Ojala Productions’ highly-anticipated eco-thriller Strange Nature.

By moving in with her estranged hermit father in the backwoods of a small town, Kim (Lisa Sheridan, The 4400) and son Brody find themselves in the middle of a horrendous phenomenon where deadly offspring mutations spread from animals to humans.

Based on true unsolved outbreaks of wildlife mutations, fall fright-fest Strange Nature marks the directorial debut of fx maestro James Ojala (Hellboy II: The Golden Army, Thor, Tron: Legacy, Buffy the Vampire Slayer) and stars Lisa Sheridan (“Invasion”), Stephen Tobolowsky (Memento), John Hennigan (Minutes to Midnight), Tiffany Shepis (Victor Crowley), and Carlos Alazraqui (The Funhouse Massacre).

Strange Nature is available on DVD and VOD from October 2.
