Two weeks ago we first told you about a new sci-fi horror thriller in the vein of SLITHER and NIGHT OF THE CREEPS entitled GROWTH. Now, if you click on over to the film’s official website you can check out the AFM promo trailer for the film that is said to be “a killer step in evolution.” Beyond the break you’ll find the synopsis.
In 1989, a breakthrough in advanced parasitic research on Cuttyhunk Island, gave scientists a jump in human evolution. Initial tests proved promising as subjects were experiencing heightened physical and mental strength and awareness. But, something in the experiment went horribly wrong and the island mysteriously lost three quarters of its population.
Jamie Akerman (Mircea Monroe, Tekken) fled the outbreak, which took her mothers life, twenty years ago. She now returns with her boyfriend (Brian Krause, Charmed) and step brother (Chris Shand, Bumper), to sell the family property. There, they uncover the key to Jamie’s disturbing past, and the horrifying secrets long suppressed by the town leader, Larkin (Richard Riehle, Hatchet).
Now, a new strain of parasite has emerged, and threatens the island once again. Jamie struggles to survive and escape the obsessive pursuit of the local islanders who suspect that she has inherited more than she could ever have imagined….
Gabe Cowan’s GROWTH stars Alexi Wasser, Richard Riehle, Brian Krause, Robert Culp, Chris Shand and Nora Kirkpatrick.
