If you haven’t seen it yet, here’s the first teaser trailer for Starrunner Entertainment’s crowdfunded sci-fi thriller, Occupants.

Starring Robert Picardo, of Star Trek: Voyager fame, this exciting found footage film is about a young couple (played by Briana White and Michael Pugliese) who discover a parallel universe during the editing of their own movie.

Also starring Aaron Retford, Jennifer Durst and young Chalet Lizette Brannan, the film’s preview is currently in the running for an Audience Choice Award at the Focus International Film Festival. It has gotten into six film festivals, winning three awards so far.

Russ Emanuel (Restoration of Paradise) is directing from a screenplay penned by Julia Camara (Open Road) and produced by Howard Nash and Robert Kwartler. Watch below.

Woo hoo! That gave me chills up and down my spine. They are also doing a comic book tie-in with DC/Marvel Comics artist Dave Beaty and comic book characters Timothy Lee Conley and Chris Winters. You can view below the Occupants comic book campaign video.

The film is currently in post production and planned for release in 2016. Check out the website and like them on Facebook.

Found Footage Scii-Fi Horror

“Occupants” is about a young couple named Annie and Neil Curtis who plan and produce a 30 day “Clean Living” documentary. Setting up cameras all over their house to document their newly created “lifestyle”, these very cameras capture a “parallel” version of themselves from another dimension. At first they can only “see” their parallel selves via the footage they captured. But soon their “doubles” begin threatening the unsuspecting couple, who must find a way to close the dimensional portal they inadvertently created. By consulting Dr. Alan Peterson (played by Robert Picardo) of the Peterson Research Institute, they devise a plan to do just that.
