THE MIND’S EYE blends horror, science fiction, and thriller elements in a retro-style film recalling the concept-driven genre films of the 70s and 80s and particularly the early work of David Cronenberg. Following years remaining off the grid, Zack (Skipper) captures the attention of the mysterious Dr. Slovak (Speredakos), a telekinesis expert with ambiguous intentions. After uncovering Slovak’s nefarious plot to empower himself using a telekinesis-enabling serum harvested from the blood of his “patients,” Zack must stop Slovak and rescue his fellow telekinetic Rachel (Carter) before it’s too late.
The climactic, mind-bending showdown between Zack and Slovak treats audiences to an array of mind-blowing special effects, engrossing narrative twists, and vivid cinematography.
