Billy Senese (“Closer to God”) wrote the screenplay and directed the film. It was co-produced by, and stars, Shane Carruth, who previously wrote, directed and starred in “Primer” and made Sundance favorite “Upstream Color.” It is the first picture he has starred in but not directed.
Jeremy Childs (“Preacher”) and Poorna Jagannathan (“Mile 22″) are also in the film. It tells the story of an unidentified suicide victim (Childs) who comes back to life and walks out of the morgue. Medical examiner Edward Graham (Bill Feehely) begins the search for the missing body, unaware the subject has ended up in the hospital psychiatric ward under the watchful eye of psychiatrist Daniel Forrester. As Graham and Forrester investigate further, it becomes apparent that the patient has brought something terrible back from the other side.
