As people become more and more reliant on “Alexa” and “Siri”, the more the specter of Artificial Intelligence (A.I.) looms large. And if sci-fi and horror movies have taught us anything, it’s that it’s only a matter of time until technology outsmarts and enslaves mankind. In the trailer AMI, we see the emergence of what could possibly be the first psychotic A.I.—or maybe it’s just the pills Cassie (Debs Howard) keeps popping.
Check out the trailer for AMI (which we’re hypothesizing stands for “Artificial Mother Intelligence”) at the top of the article and read the film’s synopsis below.
Young Cassie comes across a discarded cell phone with the latest artifical intelligence on it called AMI. Cassie customizes the AI to sound like her deceased mother which soon fulfills the void in Cassie’s life. As their relationship deepens, the nurturing and seemingly caring AI drives Cassie to perform heinous acts of murder that AMI convinces her are totally justifiable.
AMI is written and directed by Rusty Nixon; in addition to Howard, the film stars Sam Robert Muik, Phil Granger, Havana Guppy, and Bonnie Hay. AMI is represented by IndustryWorks Studios, who will be shopping the film at EFM in Berlin.
