Fantastic Fest and Fantasia sci fi hit RADIUS is now set to make it’s VOD run. Coming from filmmakers Caroline Labrèche and Steeve Léonard the story follows a man who wakes up to find out that anyone who comes near him dies. Epic Pictures plans on delivering the plot twister on November 10th. Check out the official release details for RADIUS ahead!
RADIUS opens up with Liam (Diego Klattenhoff, THE BLACKLIST, HOMELAND) waking up from a car crash: dazed, confused and lost. He has no memory of what happened or how he got there. Survival instinct kicking in, Liam tries to reach civilization; in this instance, any house or farm he might find. However, as he gets closer to people and wildlife, he discovers that there’s a truth he is not aware of: any living being that comes within a certain radius of him will die instantly. Now his journey takes a complicated turn; he needs to not only discover what happened to him, but do so without endangering the rest of humanity.
Mixing science fiction, mystery and compassion to amazing effect, directors Caroline Labrèche and Steeve Léonard’s inventive movie uses a unique hook to draw the audience in: the idea of a man whose radius is deadly is perhaps one of the most interesting visual cues in a long while. This is a frightening idea made even more impressive by its execution.
As Liam’s journey progresses, he will run into Jane (Charlotte Sullivan, ROOKIE BLUE, THE KENNEDYS) another amnesiac, and the two of them will slowly unravel the bond they share. -Fantastic Fest
