Telekinetic patients revolt against a sinister doctor, who’s tapping their spinal fluid to increase his own mental powers, in this unabashed homage to SCANNERS and THE FURY. Packed with more cranial detonations, popping veins, and full body explosions than both films combined, the blood runs free in this retro gorefest that boasts practical effects, a propulsive Carpenter-esque synth score, and a grungy ‘80s look. Featuring a genre-friendly cast including Jeremy Gardner (THE BATTERY), Larry Fessenden (WE ARE STILL HERE) and Noah Segan (STARRY EYES), this assured sophomore feature from writer-director Joe Begos (ALMOST HUMAN) comes to Monster Fest direct from its TIFF 2015 premiere as part of the prestigious Midnight Madness programme.
