A robot becomes a creeper in the trailer for Matthew Leutwyler's Uncanny

Matthew Leutwyler, director of the 2004 zombie horror/comedy DEAD & BREAKFAST and the 2007 creature feature UNEARTHED, has returned to the genre again with a sci-fi thriller called UNCANNY, which RLJ Entertainment will be releasing on DVD and VOD November 3rd.

Written by Shahin Chandrasoma, UNCANNY tells the following story: 

For ten years, inventor David Kressen has lived in seclusion with his inventions, including Adam, a robot with incredible lifelike human qualities. When reporter Joy Andrews is given access to their unconventional facility, she is alternately repelled and attracted to the scientist and his creation. But as Adam exhibits emergent behavior of anger and jealousy towards her, she finds herself increasingly entangled in a web of deception where no one’s motives are easily decipherable.

Mark Webber, Lucy Griffiths, David Clayton Rogers, and Rainn Wilson star.

The trailer can be seen below, and although the material seems quite familiar, at its core another twist on the Frankenstein story, it does look like it could be entertaining. The idea of a robot taking an unhealthy interest in a human is inherently creepy to me, and this project is giving me flashbacks to a very disturbing moment from SILENT NIGHT, DEADLY NIGHT 5: THE TOY MAKER. (Which features a horny robot.)
