The idea of the surrealistic horror/thriller ABRUPTIO is fascinating to me, as it's a movie that is going to be performed entirely by lifelike puppets, the appearance of which the filmmakers have not yet fully revealed.

Written by director Evan Marlowe, the story of the film centers on 

a guy down on his luck who wakes to find an explosive device has been implanted in his neck. He must carry out heinous crimes in order to stay alive while trying to identify the mastermind manipulating the now twisted and strange world around him.

Whatever the puppets will look like, they're going to be voiced by a very impressive vocal cast, and since we last covered ABRUPTIO here on Arrow in the Head there have been some additions to that cast. Sid Haig, Christopher McDonald, and James Marsters have been joined by the likes of horror icon Robert Englund, Hana Mae Lee (who played an awesome character in the PITCH PERFECT movies), and now comedian Jordan Peele, who is currently in post-production on a horror film he wrote and directed himself, GET OUT. Peele will be voicing the lead character's best friend.

I'm excited to see how this movie is going to turn out and what sort of horrific things these puppets are going to get up to.
