Cut Off is one of the latest thrillers from director Christian Alvart (Pandorum). Shot in Germany, this dark yarn is based on novelists: Sebastian Fitzek and Michael Tsokos' work. To be released in the U.S. this July, the film's story follows a coroner and a strange mystery. Paul finds an even stranger clue, which leads to the location of his kidnapped daughter. But, each clue leads to another character and another twist. Cut Off stars: Moritz Bleibtreu (Run Lola Run), Jasna Fritzi Bauer (Dogs of Berlin) and Fahri Yardim. A U.S. trailer and poster are hosted here.
