I have been following this project on social media for quite sometime now and have been waiting for the right time to post about it and as a release is soon forthcoming, it’s now time to unleash the beast. The film is called War Gene and it is a glorious blend of military action and sci-fi thrills from Stefan Chopavskiy. Check out the official poster below that radiates awesome throwback thrills from the 80’s and 90’s!
Official Synopsis: 1984, a team of rangers on a punitive expedition in Colombia jungle gets abducted by aliens. During the experiment, conducted on the space station, humans are forced to pass deadly tests, competing with warriors from other worlds.
Chopavsky, is a product of the great action films of the 80’s & 90’s and it really radiates through with this short film project that combines all the best elements of Rambo, Predator and other classic adrenaline rushes from the past. In the film, Chopavskiy takes on the persona of the great Sly Stallone as Sergeant Rabek who leads an elite group of men against the ultimate alien threat.
Chopavskiy wears all the hats for this one serving as producer, writer and director.
Along with the above poster, a new trailer has dropped online confirming what I already know and that this short film is a true love letter to the VHS glory days and it looks like filmmakers all over are embracing the classic throwback feel.
Check out the new trailer below and get ready to be transported into the past… and the future for that matter! Stay tuned and keep it locked and loaded right here for more to come!
