A Gooey New Ombis Trailer Arrives





We've been writing about Adam Steiger's Ombis since the beginning of the year, and from the looks of the film's stylish new trailer, things are progressing pretty nicely.

Ombis is based on a short story by Steigert and was written by him, Janeen Avery, Mark Mendola, and Terry Kimmel. The cast features Richard Satterwhite (Sheriff Thomas Brackett), Sara Manzella (Lucy), Jason John Beebe (Mark), Alexander Sloan McBryde (Mr. Gray), and Michael Sciabarrasi (Mayor Logan) with Lynn Lowry (News Anchor), Aryn Fitzgerald (Haley), Richard Winiatowski (Nemesis), Brenda Rickert (Sara), and Daniel George (Blake) co-starring.

Synopsis:
DefTone Pictures Studios’ Ombis is a 1950's styled sci-fi movie set in modern times. It's the tale of an invasion of an alien virus which lands via meteorite in the small town of Metzburgh. Metzburgh is a former industrial town whose glory days are long past but whose residents are carrying on with their daily lives: loving each other and living life as best they can. In the midst of this idealistic backdrop, enter the hideous virus Ombis, which is intent on taking over the planet Earth and changing its residents into a host for a new species.

The only thing that can stop Ombis is Nemesis, an alien from the same home planet as the virus who was sent here to contain the alien scourge. The Nemesis’ disregard for the human race puts him in a position to ensure that the Ombis virus will be eradicated since he doesn’t care about collateral damage and will use any means necessary to destroy his enemy. The real story of Ombis, however, is the human struggle of the residents of Metzburgh: to fight for their village and for their very survival.

NEXT STORY

I have never commented on an article before but have to say for a indie director to refer to themselves as "Visionary" and their film as "epic" in their own credits indicates an ego of "epic" proportions.

The trailer is nice and the movie looks like a fun low budget flick but there is nothing I can see that is groundbreaking, "visionary" or even overly original.

Get over yourself, seriously.

Normally I would order a dvd for a film like this and support the artist but must say the ego presented is a real turnoff.

"Epic journey?"

"Visionary director?"

Holy crap. There isn't an interesting non-cliched idea or well acted line in the entire clip! These guys are delusional.
