Around these parts we’re pretty dead friendly, and any time a new tale featuring those who have passed on comes around, we jump on it like a gold digger on a millionaire. Read on for the first look at and details of Encounter.
Directed, written, and produced by Susannah O’Brien and co-directed by James Bowling, Encounter stars Justin Arnold, Andrea Nelson, and Don Scriber.
Ted McBride (Justin Arnold) and his new wife, Lauren (Andrea Nelson), move to the country to film his thesis project, a study to investigate atmospheric phenomena commonly known as “orbs.” They rent a room in a farmhouse from an unsettling man named Jim (Don Scribner) and set up Ted’s motion-activated video cameras around the house and surrounding property. As the days and nights pass, Jim becomes increasingly on edge and it all comes to a head when Ted angrily confronts Jim in the middle of the night, frustrated with the unhinged old man.
Ted soon realizes that he and Lauren are being stalked and affected in strange and frightening ways by the same force that drove Jim out of his mind. In the exciting conclusion of the film, Ted and Lauren fight to save each other from the horrendous evil they have discovered.
