I first reported on this indie Sci-Fi/Action flick back in August which you can view here and now I’m happy to report that director Thijs Meuwese’s thriller Kill Mode is finally hitting the video shelves this June and we have some updated artwork to show you as well right below! The film tells the story of a man thrust back into action with his former team as they try to find a cure for a plague but instead come face to face with the untilmate horror.
Official Synopsis: Years after a bacterium killed 31 million people, David Oscar must come out of hiding and face his past. He is tracked down by the remaining members of his former rebel group, who persuade him to take part in an important mission which they believe will lead to a cure for the infected and will destroy the pharmaceutical company they believe to be responsible for the sickness. As they break into a secure facility expecting to find the cure, they discover a young girl who has been held captive and subjected to experiments for years. As David and his companions help her escape the company facility, the mutation inside her body manifests itself and the rebels discover why she has been kept under lock and key all this time.
Meuwese, who also helmed the acclaimed thriller Molly, also penned the script which derives from a short story idea of his and it reunites him with his Molly actress Julia Batelaan and also stars Dave Mantel, Yasmin Blake and Cyriel Guds.
The film debuted last year at the Toronto International Film Festival and now it’s locked and loaded for a June 16th launch on DVD courtesy of RLJ Entertainment.
Check out the original teaser that hit last Summer while we wait for a newer one to drop!
