The team at SpectreVision – Elijah Wood, Daniel Noah and Josh C. Waller – are finding success with their new banner. Their latest film, LFO, has just been picked up by MPI Media Group for distribution. It will be released by Dark Sky Films.
Writer-director Antonio Tublen's film is a darkly satiric look at our modern obsession with technology and the toll it can take on human interaction. Robert Nord (Patrik Karlson), a loner whose sole passion in life is the analog sound equipment in his basement, stumbles upon a frequency that allows him to hypnotize people. Testing it on his attractive new neighbor and her unassuming husband (Izabella Jo Tschig, Per Löfberg), he soon realizes the power he now wields. As Robert indulges in the increasingly twisted possibilities of having complete control over others, it quickly becomes clear that he is losing control of himself.
A fall 2014 release is being planned.
Says SpectreVision's Elijah Wood, "One of the reasons we started this company was to get behind great new genre films that deserve to be discovered by broader audiences. This is a subversive, funny and deeply unnerving low-techno thriller we're proud to present."
SpectreVision is also behind the upcoming Cooties, which was acquired by Lionsgate.
