The Sci-Fi thriller Recreator premieres tonight at SCI-FI-LONDON, The International Festival of Science Fiction and Fantastic Film.
The SCI-FI-LONDON festival runs Saturday 23 April – Monday 2 May and features many free events, world, international and UK premieres.
The highly-anticipated sci-fi thriller Recreator will premiere at SCI-FI-LONDON The International Festival of Science Fiction and Fantastic Film – on Wednesday April 27 at 8 p.m. at the Apollo Piccadilly. The film tells the story of three teenage hikers who accidentally trigger a deadly experiment that creates their duplicates clones who are stronger, faster, and smarter than the original kids and who plot to kill them and take over their identities. The award-winning film (Best Picture, Philadelphia Terror Fest) arrives for its UK premiere two days before the Royal Wedding of Kate Middleton and Prince William, who have had their own experience with duplicates. With a tagline of You Will Be Replaced, the movie offers a frightening scenario of confronting an enemy who knows everything about you, and has plans to kill you and take over your identity. Its about out-thinking yourself in order to survive, says the films writer/director Gregory Orr who is looking forward to attending the festival. Sci-Fi London is the perfect audience for a smart, sexy film with characters you actually don’t want to see dismembered.
The film stars Stella Maeve, who portrayed drummer Sandy West in last years The Runaways, and John de Lancie, best known to fans of Star Trek: The Next Generation as the galactic-hopping bad-boy Q. Recreator also stars Alexander Nifong (fresh from a recent appearance on the TV series Glee), and Jamal Malory-McCree. Teenage test audiences have compared the film to the sci-fi classic Invasion of the Body Snatchers, and the Twilight series. The film is not yet rated and is recommended for mature teens and older, due to some violence and a sexual situation.
