'Inventive, original and atmospheric - a low budget sci-fi movie with tension, mystery and unease'.
A low budget inventive and improvised indie sci-fi shot with a hand-held camera offering a documentary feel that brings to mind 'The Twilight Zone' and manages to engender tension, mystery and unease.
A comet passes close to Earth during a dinner party in Santa Monica, California. Diverse characters around the table. Is there tension? The wine's poured, glasses raised and it's table chatter, a little awkward at times with an unexpected guest, the ex-girlfriend of one of the guests there but strange things are happening in the house. Suddenly there's no power. No means of communication. They're isolated. A text suggests quantum physics. Would it be co-existing parallel universes and multiple versions of people? Are the dinner party guests replicated once or will there be multiples out there? How will the characters react and interact and will they figure it out? Does Hugo (Hugo Armstrong) know what's happening?
James Ward Byrkit has produced a unique sci-fi move on a shoe-string budget - he's to be congratulated.
