The first photo and teaser posters for a new adventure horror-thriller titled Phantom have just been released via ShockTillYouDrop. The film is written and directed by Todd Robinson (Angel Fire, Lonely Hearts) and takes place “at the height of the Cold War.”
Here’s a the official synopsis:
Suspicion between the superpowers is at its peak and the Americans are staging a mass Naval exercise in the Pacific. To observe the manoeuvres submarine Captain Dmitri Zubov, an experienced sailor but a man troubled by a past he struggles to live with, sets sail on what is the final mission of Soviet submarine B756. Armed with multiple torpedoes and a single tactical nuclear ballistic missile the sub is also fitted with a cloaking device that can render them invisible to the Americans.
When B756 fails to make a position report – the last that is heard from the sub it was 500 nautical miles NW of the Hawaiian Islands – Fleet Command classifies the vessel as missing. Fearing western retaliation they send their entire fleet after B756.
Meanwhile deep under the Pacific Ocean Captain Zubov and the ship’s crew of the B-756 uncover a plot that will destroy humanity. Zubov is determined to foil the plot but as the sub is pushed to its very limits and air supplies diminish, he and the crew face almost impossible odds and an increasingly unsettling sense that they are not alone…
The cast is pretty impressive, including William Fichtner, David Duchovny, Ed Harris, Sean Patrick Flanery, Lance Henriksen and Dagmara Dominczyk. Production on the film wrapped in October. No official release date for this film has been set yet.
