Shot in the Poconos - "Hostage" Available September 10th
The film Hostage, shot in the Poconos last summer by Pennsylvania Producer Michael Yurinko, is now being distributed nationwide. The film used locations in Hawley, Honesdale, Lake Ariel, and other local places. Hostage used local crew and services for most of the production. "Paranormal movie fans are in for a treat, Hostage available everywhere Sept 10th and in Walmart now." said Producer Michael Yurinko.
The Pocono Film Commission assisted with the hiring of local crew and identifying locations for the film. Hostage was one of several films that the Pocono Film Commission attracted to the region and contributed to over $6 million dollars worth of regional film production.
