MPI's Dark Sky Films acquires Antonio Tublen's sci-fi flick LFO

We’ve got some acquisition news to pass along to you folks regarding Antonio Tublen’s LFO as MPI Media Group today announced it has acquired all U.S. distribution and international sales rights to the film, a new science fiction thriller from Sweden. A fall 2014 theatrical release is anticipated for the film, which will be released under MPI's Dark Sky Films banner. Writer-director Antonio Tublen's film is described as a darkly satiric look at our modern obsession with technology and the toll it can take on human interaction.

Here's a snynopsis:

Robert Nord (Patrik Karlson, Wallander), a loner whose sole passion in life is the analog sound equipment in his basement, stumbles upon a frequency that allows him to hypnotize people. Testing it on his attractive new neighbor and her unassuming husband (Izabella Jo Tschig, Per Löfberg), he soon realizes the power he now wields. As Robert indulges in the increasingly twisted possibilities of having complete control over others, it quickly becomes clear that he is losing control of himself.

In addition to MPI's acquisition of the project, SpectreVision, the genre film production company founded by Elijah Wood, Daniel Noah and Josh C. Waller has come on board to present LFO, with the trio serving as Executive Producers. Look for more on LFO soon!
