First-person thriller Pandemic set for release in April

Last Updated on August 2, 2021

Xlrator Media have been waiting for the perfect time to release director John Suits' sci-fi action thriller PANDEMIC, a film that is said to feature "non-stop action from a first person shooter perspective", in North America – when we first reported on the film in January of last year, the film was expected to be out sometime in 2015. It's coming a little late, but Xlrator has now announced that they will be giving the film a limited theatrical release starting on April 1st, with a VOD release to follow on April 4th.

Pandemic is set in the near future, where a virus of epic proportions has overtaken the planet. There are more infected than uninfected, and humanity is losing its grip on survival. Its only hope is finding a cure and keeping the infected contained. Lauren is a doctor, who, after the fall of New York, comes to Los Angeles to lead the charge in the hunt for uninfected civilian survivors.

Lauren’s objective is simple – lead her team into the field and rescue survivors. Lauren and her team: Gunner (tactical command), Denise (navigation), and Wheeler (driver), put on their anti-contamination suits, complete with cameras so their experiences can be used for research, and leave the compound. But nothing could have prepared them for the mayhem they are about to walk into.

The film stars Rachel Nichols, Mekhi Phifer, Missi Pyle, Alfie Allen, Danielle Rose Russell, Paul Guilfoyle, and Pat Healy.

This one sounds very interesting to me, and I'm looking forward to seeing how it uses the first person perspective.
