DefTone Pictures Studios will be releasing, over the next several months, three exclusive clips from their film Ombis. Although principal photography is over, the journey of Ombis is far from. Now with editing in the final stages, the adventure is about to begin! DefTone Pictures Studios, which is known for its’ controversial short film series Black Guy on a Rampage, is on the verge of releasing their alien-themed epic Ombis.
Ombis takes place in the peaceful village of Metzburgh where the townsfolk go about their daily activities in unaware bliss. In the midst of this idealistic backdrop enter the hideous virus Ombis which is intent on taking over the planet Earth and changing its residents into a host for a new species. With the Metzburgh quickly becoming infected, a few unaffected people must fight off the destructive virus along with the alien bounty hunter that has come to destroy it, a vicious killer known as the Nemesis.
Peaceful, rustic Metzburgh is a quiet village which was a former industrial town whose glory days are long past after the collapse of Metzburgh Grain. Teenager Mark Lowe (Jason John Beebe) and his ex-girlfriend Lucy Greenheart (Sarah Manzella) are stuck in a lovers quarrel when a meteorite crash lands in the passive community. Glen (Robert Bozek ), an ex-employee of the grain silos who became homeless after the collapse of the mills, stumbles upon the fiery crash. Unaware that his find could be dangerous, he gets too close and a chemical poison sprays out of the meteorite, enveloping him. The chemical agent known as Ombis begins to turn his insides into a slimly substance. Unable to stop the spread of the infection, Glen runs onto the road where Mark and Lucy find him. The two take him to the only Doctor in town, Doctor D (Deborah Manzella)
Mark and Lucy are shocked by their gruesome discovery and immediately contact the local Sheriff Thomas Brackett (Richard Satterwhite) who is on a date with a lovely waitress Daisy (Kathy Murphy). With their date being interrupted, they aid the traumatized love birds. With no sign of the creature or its victims, Brackett dismisses Mark’s fantastic story. Quickly returning to where the meteorite crash landed, Mark finds a new horrific discovery that the meteorite wasn’t the only creature to crash land on Earth.
With the towns folk overrun by the virus and the collateral damage adding up, a special containment team shows up to try and keep order and contain the plague. The human struggle of the residents of Metzburgh and their fight for survival then begins as the village is overrun with the alien invasion and the mutated humans that it creates.
“I remember laughing to myself during the original script process saying; I don’t know why I am writing a scene where two characters are in a police car driving down a street. I know I won’t be able to actually do this. Not on an independent budget and resources. Fast-forward a year later we are shooting two characters driving down a village street in a police car for a scene in Ombis. The scene features two great actors Richard Satterwhite and Aryn Fitzgerald and has become my favorite scene of the film” says director Adam R Steigert.
