Marina Antunes [Celluloid 01.12.17] scifi thriller

Dagen Merrill's latest movie has gone by a lot of names since we first heard about it last year. Once known as Half Life and then Deep Burial, the sci-fi thriller has been re-titled Atomica and with the shiny new name comes some release news.

The movie, which stars Dominic Monaghan, Tom Sizemore and Sarah Habel, has been picked up by Syfy which plans to release it in theaters on March 17 followed by VOD and Digital HD on March 21. Though it has yet to be announced, I expect a release on Syfy won't be too far behind.

In Atomica, Habel plays Abby Dixon, a safety inspector who is sent to fix the communications network at a remote nuclear power plant isolated in the desert. "Once inside the facility, mysterious clues and strange behavior cause Abby to have doubts about the sanity and, perhaps, identities of the two employees onsite;" the two employees being Monaghan and Sizemore.

An early trailer for the movie suggested an interesting story and some solid performances and though the effects are a bit rough, it feels like Atomica may be able to overcome the VFX shortcomings.
