Writer/director Jordan Rubin, who previously brought 2014’s madcap Zombeavers, is tackling technology in his latest horror offering, The Drone.
In the new film, which will debut later this month at Slamdance Film Festival in Park City, Utah, a serial killer manages to transfer his consciousness into a consumer drone moments before he is killed. Using his new found freedom, the drone escapes into the air and begins terrorizing a newlywed couple.
The couple, played by Alex Essoe (Starry Eyes) and John Brotherton (The Conjuring), must fight to stop the evil device before it destroys them.
The film also stars Neil Sandilands, Simon Rex, and Anita Briem.
Details are scarce as to how exactly the killer’s consciousness is transferred, but it’s apparent from the trailer that Rubin’s signature dark sense of humor is present in the film.
“God, I hate upgrades” is, after all, some serious meme fodder.
The Drone will screen January 28, 2019 at 10:30 PM at the Slamdance Film Festival and will feature the world premiere of the teaser for the new film Skyman from director Dan Myrick in associate with Joseph Restaino of Character Brigade and iHorror! Tickets are available online! The festival is entering its 24th year and prides itself on showcasing emerging filmmakers as well as low-budget independent films from all genres.
