Almost Human director Joe Begos returned to the Toronto International Film Festival last September with The Mind’s Eye (review #1, #2), an insanely gory and violent telekinetic revenge thriller set in snowy 1990 New England.
Now, RLJ Entertainment will release the film, which follows a drifter (Graham Skipper) with telekinetic abilities who targets a doctor who is creating a synthetic telekinetic power serum, in theaters and on VOD and iTunes August 5.
Lauren Ashley Carter (Darling, Pod), John Speredakos, Noah Segan (Looper), Matt Mercer, Larry Fessenden, and Jeremy Gardner also star. Zak Zeman (V/H/S, Under the Bed, Aggression Scale, Late Phases) produces.
Mike Pereira called the film “a highly entertaining ode to the telekinetic subgenre,” while also boasting a “third act [that] erupts in a full-on display of hilariously gargantuan acting and buckets of bloody fireworks that satisfies in spades.”
“Zack Connors and Rachel Meadows were born with incredible psychokinetic capabilities. When word of their supernatural talents gets out, they find themselves the prisoners of Michael Slovak, a deranged doctor intent on harvesting their powers. After a daring escape, they are free from his sinister institution, but the corrupt doctor will stop at nothing to track them down so that he may continue to siphon their gifts for his own use.”
Back in September the hype meter went to ten with the premiere of this clip that will make you explode everywhere.
