In The Metamorphosis (written by Franz Kafka and first published in 1915), Gregor Samsa wakes up one morning to discover he’s turned into a cockroach. Over 100 years later, Seeds looks and sound like a modern reimagining of the classic tale. Look for Seeds in theaters September 13th and on VOD/DVD September 24th via Dark Star Pictures and Uncork’d Entertainment.
Give our exclusive clip from Seeds a spin at the top of the article, followed by the synopsis and trailer below.
After a night of debauchery spirals out of control, Marcus retreats to his family home along the New England coast. Solitude is disturbed when his brother asks Marcus to look after his estranged nephew and niece. As days pass, solace escapes him; he feels baited by a dark force. Is he losing his mind or has something terrible burrowed deep within him? Incubating. Waiting until the climate is right. Haunted by his deepest fears, Marcus struggles not to succumb as he fights to protect Lily, his beloved niece from a monster that lies in wait.
Seeds is directed by Owen Long from a screenplay penned by Steven Weisman; the film stars Trevor Long, Andrea Chen, Garr Long, and Kevin Breznahan.
