First Look at Gabriel Cowan’s Growth

Don’t worry! Luckily it’s nothing we are going to have to lance ourselves! Instead we speak of the sci-fi thriller that is looking to send more than a few gross-out induced shivers up and down your spine.

Director Gabriel Cowan dropped us a note today to let us know that the official trailer for his latest film Growth is up online – as are the first few minutes of the film.

According to Cowan this experience was pretty unique. “We shot on the RED ONE and have over a hundred VFX shots,” Gabe tells DC. “Perhaps even more exciting, we shot an entire scene in Korea remotely from Los Angeles. We had a high definition feed to our computer, and our laptop had Skype and Google video working for us to communicate with the crew, director of photography and the actors. It was an incredible experience!”

So how did it all turn out? Judging from what you will see below, I’d say pretty damned well. Look for more on Growth starring Brian Krause, Mircea Monroe, and Richard Riehle very soon! In the interim — dig it!

In 1989, a breakthrough in advanced parasitic research on Cuttyhunk Island, gave scientists a jump in human evolution. Initial tests proved promising as subjects were experiencing heightened physical and mental strength and awareness. But, something in the experiment went horribly wrong and the island mysteriously lost three quarters of its population. Jamie Akerman fled the outbreak, which took her mothers life, twenty years ago. She now returns with her boyfriend and step brother, to sell the family property. There, they uncover the key to Jamie’s disturbing past, and the horrifying secrets long suppressed by the town leader, Larkin. Now, a new strain of parasite has emerged, and threatens the island once again. Jamie struggles to survive and escape the obsessive pursuit of the local islanders who know that she has inherited more than she could ever have imagined.

You're such an inspiration for the ways that I will never, ever choose to be.

    Looks like a mutation of CABIN FEVER and SLITHER, but ok, I’ll see it.It does actually look pretty cool!!! I just watched GRACE on DVD this weekend and right now watching paint dry while having my fingernails pulled from my fingers with plyers ever so slowly would be entertaining to me. And more fun.

    This looks like some good fun. I’m not a fan of the fast moving parasites (vs the slow ones…like in zombies, where as in zombies – I like all modes of undead fast and slow…), but regardless, lots of gooey goodness abound, I’m in.
