Earlier this month a trailer was released for indie paranormal thriller “Encounter”. The artwork for the film isn’t all that impressive but after watching the trailer I am very interested in the film. There seems to be some dark satire- hidden in some truly dark, chilling writing. “Encounter” is directed by James Bowling, Susannah O'Brien and Justin Arnold, Jonathan Brooks, Don Scribner, Andrea Nelson and Jack Hunter.
A pair of newlyweds set up cameras in and around an old farm house for husband Ted's grad school film thesis on orbs. It's not long before they discover a dark and terrible secret that threatens their sanity and their lives.
McBride (Justin Arnold) and his new wife Lauren (Andrea Nelson) move to the country to film his thesis project, a study to investigate atmospheric phenomena commonly known as “orbs.” They rent a room in a farmhouse from an unsettling man named Jim (Don Scribner) and set up Ted’s motion activated video cameras around the house and surrounding property. As the days and nights pass, Jim becomes increasingly on edge and it all comes to a head when Ted angrily confronts Jim in the middle of the night, frustrated with the unhinged old man.
Ted soon realizes that he and Lauren are being stalked and affected in strange and frightening ways by the same force that drove Jim out of his mind. In the exciting conclusion of the film, Ted and Lauren fight to save each other and escape the evil that they have discovered that now stalks them.
