IFC Midnight has recently released the trailer to a sci-fi slasher flick it picked up at last year’s Toronto International Film Festival. Having also played at Fantastic Fest, the film, Almost Human (not to be confused with the FOX TV series) from Joe Begos has been described as being like John Carpenter’s earlier work.
The premise involves New Englanders who discover their alien abductee buddy, Mark, has returned home with some newfound killer instincts.
Much like Carpenter, Begos did multiple jobs on the film including acting as his own Director of Photography (not to mention wrote, directed and produced). His friend Josh Ethier also produced, as well as edited, did sound and acted in the production.
IFC plans to give Almost Human a limited theatrical/VOD release beginning February 21, 2014.
