Exclusive: The Sickness Pics

The Sickness Exclusives (click to see it bigger!)Director Carl Paolino sent us a few exclusive images from his new flick today so we figured we’d share. The Sickness tells us the story of five laboratory workers who become “trapped in a secret disease development facility when a highly transmittable virus infects one of the workers.

Don’t think of this as just another horror flick. Mr. Paolino has a message: “When I conceived of The Sickness, one of my goals was to take on the particular social issue of how our government is not really looking after us as well as they lead us to believe. This appeared to be a good subject for a horror film, a scenario that could and does happen to us all every day. When one Hollywood agent read my script, he told me that in this day and age, no company or government would put its own people in danger like that. Later that month a news story broke out across the U.S. that twelve miners were trapped in a mining shaft due to the negligence of the mining company.” Go figure, huh?

For more information and the trailer check out the official site for The Sickness. Check out the exclusive pics below.

Mike Phalin

Since 1997, Michael Patrick Phalin has been a contributing writer to various websites including Dread Central, iMockery, Bloody Disgusting and KrytenSyxx. During the early 1980s, Phalin's love of the movie industry was fueled by the VHS tapes he found during his time spent at the video rental store his mother worked at. Rather than attending a daycare regularly, young Michael would form a tower of tapes with interesting cover art and go watch each one, the very first of these being the original 'A Nightmare on Elm Street.' From that point he was hooked on horror and the process behind creating special effects. In his twenties, Mike met Steve 'Uncle Creepy' Barton and was soon aiding the horror website Dread Central with film reviews. As the site grew in popularity, Phalin soon started writing news stories and conducting interviews on a daily basis. After a few years, he decided to take a break from writing to focus on other opportunities. After moving to a beach community with his wife Michelle, both were cast to appear in the final season of A&E's home improvement show 'Fix This Yard' in 2013. This event rekindled Mike's love of the entertainment industry. Between the time he spends being with his family, Michael continues to contribute to Dread Central both with writing and photography. In his mid-thirties, Phalin took up oil painting after being inspired by an episode of Bob Ross. Pieces of his artwork and photography can be found on his Tumblr and official website.
