Abduct is a new Horror/Sci-fi film that is currently finalizing post-production and will be attending film festivals before its release and Zombie Popcorn wants to make sure you know about it, but first…
Crystal blacks out again and awakens to find Malvin dead. She flees in his truck down the highway, but a strange Man in Black pursues her.
Panicking, Crystal calls the only person around who seems to know anything about the paranormal…the voice talking on the radio Ridley Kay. At first, Ridley doesn’t believe her story, but she shows up on his doorstep with a Man in Black on her heels. Ridley calls upon three of his friends for help; the rancher Zane, Alien abduction researcher Laura and the Cherokee scientist
White Path. The Man in Black taunts the men over the phone and warns them that helping Crystal will be a death sentence. His name is Alistair Cruel.
Unfazed, the three men resolve to help Crystal, but strange occurrences harass them. Electronic gear malfunctions. Ridley begins suffering night terrors. They lose whole blocks of time; their memories wiped of any activities that might have occurred. Alistair Cruel enjoys tormenting them with his unexplainable abilities. He teases them that no one truly understands the paranormal, nor can they fight it.
Finally, the Man in Black lures Crystal to a far-away cave, teasing her with the possibility of saving Malvin. The men pursue Crystal determined to defeat Alistair Cruel. Whether he’s an alien, an entity or even a government agent, they don’t know…
…but they’re going to stake their lives to find out the Truth.
The Crew and Cast
Abduct is directed by Ilyas Kaduji. He has a long list of great films under his belt where he play a variety of roles from Visual Effects Supervisor, Technical director, Director, Writer, Digital Artist, just to name a few. He worked as a Technical Director for Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street, CG Lighting Artist for Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, several Doctor Who episodes, Alien vs/ Predator, The Hichiker’s Guide to the Galaxy…. I could go on and on. The point is this guy knows his stuff.
The team behind this film has put together a wonderful cast of experienced actors/actress’ that include Mark Arnold (Teen Wolf), Sienna Guillory (Love Actually, Resident Evil), Jack O’Halloran (Superman, King Kong), William B Davis (The X-Files, Smallville, Stargate SG-1), Buffy Davis (The Machinist, Anna Karenina), Andrei Claude (Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels), Petra Bryant (The Last Scout), Franco Flammia (Mission Impossible 2), and Mhairi Calvey (Braveheart).
Speaking of the team behind this film, it is also a strong list of players. The Executive Producers are Josef Brandmaier who is known for his work on The Illusionist (2006), Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines (2003), Lucky Number Slevin (2006) and The Expendables 2 and Malcolm Winter, who is the Head of Investments in this project. The writer is Phil Day, is an award-winning Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror screenwriter and songwriter. Charles Heals is the Director of Photography. Charles was awarded the first ever Warner Bros. scholarship and has worked on TV Commercials, over 50 short films, features and documentaries seen worldwide. You can’t have a great film without great music, so Ed Watkins is on the team as the Composer. Neil Maguire is the Storyboard and Conceptual Designer. I could list all the projects and background of Neil, but I think I can sum it up with this sentence; Neil has worked on the BBC’s Red Dwarf – period, enough said.
