Eureka Co-Creator Questions: Who is Subject 7?


First details on new vampire film

Andrew Cosby is about to put his stamp on the bloodsucker genre with Subject 7. The film plays on voyeurism and the digital age, where everyone has a recording device and nothing is secret. Watchmen‘s Lloyd Levin, Nate Bolotin and Nick Spicer will produce what sounds like a promising twist on a genre that has, pardon the pun, been bled dry thanks to Twilight and its brethren.

Cosby is the co-creator of SyFy’s series Eureka. He’s also serving as a producer on the supernatural thriller Tag, starring Cerina Vincent. Here’s a full plot crunch for Subject 7.

A group of film school students decide to follow random strangers, discreetly filming them without their knowledge in an effort to piece together their story and create a compelling narrative – literally a picture of modern life in the big city. It’s an ambitious project, and each does their part, working in shifts to maintain surveillance of their various subjects, meticulously keeping track of their habits, their daily routines, following them to work, on weekend excursions, stolen moments, clandestine rendezvous.

Fortunately for them, everyone has secrets. The trick is discovering them… and more importantly, getting them on film. But when one of the students mysteriously vanishes, the others suspect that one of their subjects might be responsible. They soon discover their friend had been following someone the others weren’t even aware of… Subject #7.

Subject #7 is not like any of the others, he’s very difficult to follow, and they never see him during the day. Who is he? Where did he come from? How did she find him? Every answer only leads to more questions, and what follows is a suspenseful game of cat a mouse as our intrepid filmmakers concentrate all their efforts on this one person, stalking him, hoping to find some clue as to his true identity and what might have happened to their friend. As more of the students disappear, we soon learn the terrifying truth, that the person they’ve been following isn’t a “person” at all… he’s something more, or less, than human… a vampire… and not at all like the ones you read about in books or see in the movies. This is a creature of pure evil, a malevolent, predatory thing that lives in the shadows, hidden from prying eyes… that is, until now.
