Joe Davison, star of 100 Tears (review), Fearmakers and more indie horrors, has just announced his debut as both writer and director. It’s called Experiment 7 and will feature a virtual who’s-who of the indie scene, including directorial pieces shot by two other well-known indie horror helmers.
First, some plot: Dr. Felix Copper is a dedicated scientist who has vowed to save mankind. And in the post nuclear world he just might be its only hope. While traveling through the devastated ruins of city after city he teams up with two unlikely heroes, Sam and William, two survivalists who have made it a habit of saving him from the onslaught of mutants that constantly get in their way. It isn’t until they meet Aco, a supermodel turned weapons expert, that they realize their full potential and really start to get the upper hand. Now Dr. Copper just may be able to do what he was sent out to do, save mankind.
Alan Rowe Kelly, Timo Rose, Rod Grant, Raine Browne and Dwight Cenac all have starring roles in the film with Kelly and Rose set to directs segments in New York and Germany, respectively. Not a bad way to get a lot of locations for little money; the bulk of the film will be shot in Davison’s hometown of Tampa, FL.
Cameras roll in March for a planned October debut in Tampa. Keep it here for more updates as they come in!
