Almost Human director Joe Begos returned to the Toronto International Film Festival this past September with The Mind’s Eye (review #1, #2), an insanely gory and violent telekinetic revenge thriller set in snowy 1990 New England.
Now, Lightning Entertainment has boarded the throwback horror film with rights to blow minds internationally at the upcoming AFM in Santa Monica.
The Mind’s Eye follows a drifter (Graham Skipper) with telekinetic abilities who targets a doctor who is creating a synthetic telekinetic power serum. Lauren Ashley Carter (Pod), John Speredakos, Noah Segan (Looper), Matt Mercer, Larry Fessenden, and Jeremy Gardner also star.
“The Mind’s Eye is about Zack Connors (Graham Skipper), whose abilities have kept him off the grid for years until he’s recruited by the mysterious Dr. Slovak. The snowy New England landscape turns into a whirlwind of psychic rage, flying axes, and brutal revenge as Zack does everything in his power to stop Dr. Slovak’s deadly descent into synthetically engineered telekinetic madness.”
Back in September the hype meter went to ten with the premiere of this clip that will make you explode everywhere.
Lightning acquisitions and sales consultant Richard S Guardian said: “Joe Begos is a student and fan of seminal genre films, who has brought similar action, over-the-top mayhem, and Evil Dead-style humour to his movies. Joe is rapidly developing a worldwide legion of fans with his stylish story-telling”.
Begos added: “I’m delighted that the Lightning Entertainment team have embraced my film and responded to the spirit of escapism and fun that I sought to capture.”
