The highly-anticipated sophomore feature from ALMOST HUMAN writer-director Joe Begos now has an official trailer, which was unveiled today by Entertainment Weekly… and it’s completely bonkers. In a good way, of course.
THE MIND’S EYE is an extreme sci-fi/horror tale (think an ultra-gory and dark twist on X-MEN) about a deranged scientist who wants to harness the lethal powers of a select group of psychokinetic mutants for his own diabolical scheme. The film’s official release comes in the wake of a strong festival showing, shocking and delighting audiences with its sly nods to ’80s genre classics like David Cronenberg’s SCANNERS.
ALMOST HUMAN star Graham Skipper (whose directorial debut, SEQUENCE BREAK, is currently in production) heads up the cast, along with Lauren Ashley Carter (DARLING), John Speredakos (WENDIGO) and a virtual who’s-who of indie horror names (including STARRY EYES’s Noah Segan, THE BATTERY’s Jeremy Gardner, CONTRACTED’s Matt Mercer, POD’s Brian Morvant, ALMOST HUMAN’s Josh Ethier, and of course the forever awesome Larry Fessenden).
THE MIND’S EYE hits theaters and On Demand services on August 5… so get yourself charged up with the trailer below!
