iPhone “RECOVERY” Leads to Terror in New Tech-Horror
Kirby Bliss Blanton and Samuel Larsen will lead RECOVERY, a film that plans to expand everyone’s fear of their iPhone getting stolen into something far worse.
In RECOVERY, Blanton’s character has her iPhone stolen on the night of her high school graduation. It’s tracked down with a “find my iPhone” app to a house where the demented tenants plan on kidnapping her and making her part of the family. Darrell Wheat, who’s making his directorial debut with the film, says “With our increased addiction to technology, especially our smart phones, I wanted to explore the lengths people would go to retrieve something stolen… especially something with personal information on it, even when you know you’re in over your head.”
Wheat co-wrote the film with Kyle Arrington, of TV’s THE ORIGINALS. Find the film’s first poster, above.
