Writing for a horror site has its ups and downs but the biggest problem I have ran into is the abundance of films that pass through the site’s doors. So many films are reported on and this leads to a huge laundry list of flicks that I want to see. Heading that list is the sci-fi thriller simply titled ‘Worm’ from director Doug Mallette.
The film looks super cool and unique which is something a lot of films have been lacking recently. Today, I received the following press release:
In a future where we no longer have the ability to dream, people have
turned to ‘Fantasites,’ genetically engineered worm-like parasites,
for sleep relief. Delivered right to your door, these “worms”
allow you to experience your wildest nocturnal fantasies by just
dropping one in your ear canal right before bedtime!
Charles (John Ferguson), a socially awkward young man, begins using
this new miracle dream aid hoping it will bring excitement to his
mundane life and get him closer to the girl of his dreams. Soon,
things squirm out of control for Charles and his friends, when the
Government bans the product and people seek the addictive
‘Fantasites’ through underground illegal means…
A fascinating, genre-bending, sci-fi thriller, WORM (
http://synapse-films.com/dvds/worm-dvd/ ) is an outstanding
independent production that took film festivals by storm. Originally
conceived as a short for Nashville’s “48 Hour Film Project”
(also included as an extra on this release), this feature-length
version was developed without a written script and the actors
improvised their dialogue during filming.
This release is being handled by Synapse so you know your money will be well spent. You can grab the flick by going to Synapse!
