Chrysalis is a post-apocalyptic horror film, set 25 years after a biological terrorist attack unleashes a virus upon the world, transforming much of humanity into vicious creatures and laying waste to civilization. The remnants and survivors have staggered about for years, as the "infected" slowly starve and die off. Our story follows Joshua (Cole Simon) and Penelope (Sara Gorsky), two such survivors who have banded together in the hope of rescuing others and hopefully rebuilding civilization. When they encounter Abira, the lone survivor of another group, their worlds and goals are irrevocably altered, and they must face new and terrifying challenges if they are to survive. Written by

The idea for the script came when screenwriter Ben Kurstin was driving through Harvey, a town on the south side of Chicago, and passed by the old Dixie Square Mall where the car chase mall scene was filmed for the movie "The Blues Brothers." It was closed in November of 1978 and has been slowly falling apart ever since. Seeing it as a great location for a post apocalyptic movie, he began writing Chrysalis...but well before production started, the mall was torn down. See more
