A new sci-fi horror has just made a deal to be distributed here in the UK and in the US. Called Scintilla, the first trailer shows a lot of promise, and plenty of creepy and also freaky imagery to get your horror juices flowing.
The film has been picked up by Metrodome for release here in the UK later this year, and Mongrel Media have acquired North American distro rights.
Directed by Billy O’Brien (Isolation), Scintilla stars John Lynch, Craig Conway, Antonia Thomas, Jumayan Hunter, Morjana Alaoui, and Beth Winslet.
An elite team of mercenaries is chosen to carry out a covert operation deep in a former Soviet state. They must first battle the ferocious armed militia at ground level before descending through a maze of tunnels inhabited by dark, menacing creatures. When the team members arrive at an underground laboratory, they discover the purpose of their mission: A genius scientist has been genetically splicing alien DNA with human, and the results of this revolutionary work must be secured. The soldiers must protect and save the specimens whilst avoiding the threats of multiple predators, both human and otherwise.
