The movie tells the tale of five friends vacationing at a remote lake house, expecting nothing less than a good time. Unbeknownst to them, Earth is under an alien invasion and in the thralls of a mass-abduction.

Director Borelli is a former collaborator of director Tim Burton and the film illustrator for blockbuster films such as Pirates of the Caribbean and Captain America.

The Recall will also be shot for the new Barco Escape three-screen, panoramic theatrical format, which fully surrounds audiences and offers the ultimate immersive cinema experience.  Portions of the films will also be shot in Virtual Reality.

Minds Eye International has North American distribution rights to The Recall, while VMI Worldwide has international rights. The Recall will be produced by Kevin Dewalt (Forsaken, The Tall Man) and Danielle Masters (Forsaken, Wolfcop), and will be executive produced by Guy Griffithe (WTF: World Thumbwrestling Federation, School Spirits), Andre Relis (War Pigs, The Perfect Weapon), Frank White (The Tall Man, Faces In The Crowd), and Isabella Ragona (Forsaken, Stranded).  The Recall is the first film of a six-picture production slate announced by the companies at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival.
