The Innkeepers, by Glass Eye Pix
According to a press release, production has begun in Oxford, Conn., on Chiller network's newest original movie, Beneath.

The Spring 2013 monster movie stars Danny Zovatto (Innocence), Bonnie Dennison (Stake Land, Third Watch), Chris Conroy (Sorority Row), Jonny Orsini (Imogene), Griffin Newman (Political Animals) and Mackenzie Rosman (7th Heaven). Also joining the cast is Emmy-nominee Mark Margolis (Hector Salamanco from Breaking Bad) as Mr. Parks.

Following in the footsteps of Chiller's The Remains by Steve Niles, Beneath is written by Tony Daniel and Brian D. Smith, and directed by horror icon Larry Fessenden (The Last Winter, Habit) and produced by Fessenden and Peter Phok for Glass Eye Pix (Stake Land, The Innkeepers, I Sell The Dead). 

The official synopsis:
When a group of young friends commemorating their high school graduation take a trip to the remote Black Lake, their celebration turns into a nightmare with the sudden appearance of a bloodthirsty, underwater predator. Stuck in a leaking boat with no oars, the teens face the ultimate tests of friendship and sacrifice during a terror-stricken fight for survival.
