From actor turned director Michael Manasseri comes the new Creature Features ‘Sucker’. Michael and J.P. Epstein wrote the script for this action-scifi-horror film, in which the combination nuclear radiation and a toxic vaccine create one pissed off big bug who takes revenge on those who harmed him and protects the one person who loved him.
Lovable loser Jim Crawley is having a pretty bad day. He gets fired from his job at the Nuclear Power Plant he’s worked at for 11 years, his car gets impounded, and he discovers his wife is having an affair with his ex co-worker. To make matters worse, Jim gets abducted by an evil scientist who is conducting tests of a controversial vaccine against a deadly virus that is spreading across the planet. It turns out that years of being exposed to nuclear radiation and a serum full of a rare insect DNA doesn’t mix very well with Jim…he mutates into a six foot, blood sucking, half human, half-insect that sets out for revenge.
‘Sucker’ is a mix of comic book adventure/live action/3d animation and stylized photography and will be released here in the USA on August 15.
