‘Sequence Break’: Haunted Arcade Game Delivers a Retro-Horror Vibe (Exclusive)

Premiering tomorrow April 6th, 2007, as the opening night film of the Chattanooga Film Festival is Graham Skipper‘s retro-themed sci-fi horror film Sequence Break, which harkens to classics like David Cronenberg’s Videodrome and Ken Russell’s Altered States.

In the film, “A reclusive video arcade repair technician (Chase Williams) experiences bizarre biomechanical mutations and Cronenbergian hallucinations when a mysterious new arcade machine appears in his shop. Reality itself threatens to fracture as he works to solve its mystery and the new chaos that has entered his life.”

While Bloody Disgusting has an exclusive look at the festival art, here’s a trailer for the surreal sci-fi romance wherein a beautiful young woman and strange metaphysical forces threaten the reality of a reclusive video arcade technician, resulting in bizarre biomechanical mutations and a shocking self-realization.

Sequence Break stars Chase Williamson (SiREN, John Dies at the End), Fabianne Therese (Southbound, Starry Eyes, Teenage Cocktail), Lyle Kanouse (Firefly, Auto Focus), Audrey Wasilewski (Big Love, RED), and Johnny Dinan (The Village).  Skipper also produced the film with Kanouse and Wasilewski.

Skipper has also starred in a wide variety of genre films from Almost Human to The Mind’s Eye, Carnage Park and even Beyond the Gates. We’re excited to see what he does behind the camera!

Below you’ll find a a look at the festival one-sheet designed by Christopher Shy of Studio Ronin.

    That was a cool trailer.

    Reminds me of a film from 1983 called ‘Nightmares’ by Joseph Sargent. One of the shorts was called ‘The Bishop of Battle” with Emilio Estevez. It was about an arcade gamer’s obsession with a game leads to deadly consequences. The game graphics from the short are similar to the game graphics in Sequence Break’s trailer. Brainscan is another that comes to mind with a similar premise. Anybody remember those films?

      Nightmares is decent, but I love “The Bishop of Battle” so awesome

      I LOVED Brainscan the first time I saw it. I was 17 working at a movie theater at the time and took my girlfriend to the late showing after my Saturday shift. Just a damn fun night at the movies!

    While you’re at it, maybe fix the rest of the site. Right now it’s an overbloated pile of garbage code.

    Interesting idea but what a boring trailer.
