Unidentified, a clever mix of sci-fi, thriller and comedy, is the feature directorial debut of Jason R. Miller (co-producer and second-unit director of the Adam Green’s Hatchet 2 and Frozen). It stars Parry Shen (the Hatchet franchise, Better Luck Tomorrow), Colton Dunn (Key and Peele), Eddie Mui (Call Back) and Eric Artell (Pair of Kings). Considering the fact that I love Adam Green’s films and think that Parry Shen is an amazing under-rated actor, I am definitely intrigued by this one.
The plot is as follows: “During a wild weekend in Las Vegas, four young friends get into trouble with a loan shark and must skip town in a hurry. But gambling debts may be the least of their worries after they get stranded in the vast Nevada desert. One of the guys discovers a mysterious metal fragment and then promptly goes missing during the night. When the remaining three catch up with their lost friend, they notice something oddly different about him. As his condition worsens, the others realize that some unearthly being may be stalking them in the wilderness.”
Unidentified arrives on Digital Download and DVD from MPI/Dark Sky Films on February 11, 2014. Check out the official trailer, located below.
