Shortwave Trailer

"They're here." The teaser trailer has debuted for an indie sci-fi psychological thriller called Shortwave, directed by Ryan Gregory Phillips, and produced by the same people who made the indie horror hit The Invitation. The film is based on a theory of the origins of shortwave radio frequencies, and the more they investigate, the more weird things start to happen. The cast includes Cristobal Tapia Montt, Juanita Ringeling, and Kyle Davis, along with music by the indie band Mantaraybryn. This teaser is visually appealing and quite thrilling, with so many crazy shots that will make you wonder what the heck is going on. I can't tell if this has aliens or monsters or something else (or none of the above) but they got my attention.

Here's the official teaser trailer for Ryan Gregory Phillips' sci-fi Shortwave, direct from YouTube:

Shortwave Poster

Josh and Isabel Harris, after suffering the loss of their only child, relocate to a secluded hillside research facility with the hopes of repairing their broken family. After years of trying, Josh and his research partner, Thomas, have a breakthrough involving a cryptic shortwave radio signal and its universal origins. Something within the signal resonates with Isabel and she begins experiencing seeming hallucinations and visions of distant memories. Upon further investigation into the phenomenon, the scientists fear for Isabel’s health while Isabel fears the signal has attracted something sinister to their new home. Shortwave is both written & directed by up-and-coming American filmmaker Ryan Gregory Phillips (Southern Comfort), from a story by Frank Ponce. The film is premiering at the Dances With Films Festival this month, but doesn't have a release date yet. Visit the official site for more info. Your thoughts?

It looks more like some retro-futuristic 1970s style of the movie. I hope it won't be only horrific and mysterious but also sexy like those from 1970s ...
