TEENAGE CLONES SET TO INVADE COMIC-CON

TEENAGE CLONES SET TO INVADE COMIC-CON

Werewolves, vampires, superheroes and storm troopers, give way for dangerous doppelgangers at this year’s Comic Con when the highly anticipated sci‐fi thriller Recreator hosts a midnight screening Thursday July 23 at Landmark’s Hillcrest Cinemas. Recreator stars Stella Maeve (The Runaways & Gossip Girl,) Alexander Nifong and Jamal Mallory McCree as three friends on a camping trip who discover a secret laboratory and accidentally trigger a deadly experiment that creates their duplicates‐‐clones who are stronger, faster, and better than the original teens and who threaten to kill them and take over their identities. The film co‐stars Star Trek: TNG alum John de Lancie as the mysterious owner of the island where the friends come ashore.

“It’s a nightmare scenario,” says writer‐director Gregory Orr, who shot the film in the rugged Adirondack Mountains of upstate New York, and will be on hand after the screening. “The idea of being replaced by someone superior to you, who is you!”

The film was recently awarded Best Picture at Philadelphia’s Terror Fest, and praised at the Sci‐Fi London Film Festival where Empire magazine called it, “A witty twist on the mad scientist and teens in peril scenario (and) an enjoyable romp that more than merits a sequel.”

During Comic‐Con Recreator will be represented by a team of “lab assistants” who will perform double‐duty handing out fun souvenirs and administering DNA tests. Fans are encouraged to follow us on Twitter @RECREATORmovie for exclusive Comic Con giveaways, news and events.
