Our favourite little US independent studio, Deftone Pictures Studios, have been very, very busy indeed.
We first happened upon Deftone when we covered their violent exploitation-style short series, Black Guy On A Rampage. However, now, those guys from Buffalo, NY have been hard at work on their latest film, the ambitious sci-fi flick, Ombis.
We have spoken to writer/director Adam R. Steigert many, many times and followed the progress of Ombis from its inception up until today, with the release of the latest trailer.
The synopsis is as follows,
DefTone Pictures Studios’ Ombis is a 1950′s styled sci-fi movie set in modern times. It’s the tale of an invasion of an alien virus which lands via meteorite in the small town of Metzburgh. Metzburgh is a former industrial town whose glory days are long past but whose residents are carrying on with their daily lives: loving each other and living life as best they can. In the midst of this idealistic backdrop, enter the hideous virus Ombis, which is intent on taking over the planet Earth and changing its residents into a host for a new species.
The only thing that can stop Ombis is Nemesis, an alien from the same home planet as the virus who was sent here to contain the alien scourge. The Nemesis’ disregard for the human race puts him in a position to ensure that the Ombis virus will be eradicated since he doesn’t care about collateral damage and will use any means necessary to destroy his enemy. The real story of Ombis, however, is the human struggle of the residents of Metzburgh: to fight for their village and for their very survival.
