Bloody Disgusting has an exclusive clip from the sci-fi thriller Chimera Strain, which shows scientist (“Lost’s” Henry Ian Cusick) playing a bit of Frankenstein to keeps his children alive. He resorts to transplanting organs from animals into his children to buy him time to cure a rare disease that is killing them. We’re told that the film, in limited theaters and on VOD platforms March 15th, is as much thriller, borderline horror, as it is science-fiction.
“Imagine a world without aging, injury, disease or death. Quint’s obsession with this utopian dream pushes him to the edge of his sanity. Rather than risk losing his dying children, Quint decides to freeze them alive, thereby preserving them in a cryonic ametabolic state. Meanwhile, he feverishly researches genetic modifications that would give them the regenerative abilities of the “immortal” Turritopsis jellyfish. Quint’s experiments require human embryonic stem cells and this sets him on a collision course with his Masterson, a shadowy figure, whose bizarre motives trigger a chain of events with far-reaching consequences.”
Below is the clip to go along with a new still and poster art.
