Related Posts Plugin for WordPress, Blogger...
Atomica was originally titled Deep Burial. The film, from director Dagen Merrill (Beneath, 2007), stars: Tom Sizemore, Sarah Habel and Dominic Monaghan. This intriguing title has had a few theatrical showings already. The film is set for a few more on March 17th, 2017. And, the film involves a nuclear power plant, which has gone offline. An inspector finds the plant's workers, but they are acting strangely and possibly murderously. Atomica will also have a Video-on-demand launch this March 21st. The film's official trailer is hosted here.

The trailer, for Atomica, is an interesting one. It shows the character Abby infiltrating the plant, which appears to be abandoned. But, one of the plant's managers eventually turns up and he may not be who he seems to be.

From early reviews, the film covers a few themes. Heidi Honeycutt, at Rue Morgue, has mentioned the nihilism of this title and the cynicism: "Atomica's message is the one that usually makes sense in movies like these: corporations suck, people suck, life is too short to do anything about it." The trailer also shows a serious tone. Fans of sci-fi and horror will want to keep this upcoming release on their radars. More details on Atomica are below.
