Mongrel Media, with sales and distribution expertise provided by MVD Entertainment Group, has tabbed Dec. 13 as the DVD debut date for director Billy O’Brien’s sci-fi/horror thriller, The Hybrid.
The Russians were up to something, or perhaps we should say that the former Soviet Union was up to something. It seems that they found a mysterious meteorite that allowed them to make hybrid humans, presumably for military purposes. The old order collapses, militias fill the vacuum and the experimental facility falls into disuse.
No problem, right? A bad idea has come to an end. If only that were the case as a commando team — basically guns for-hire — have been dispatched to find out what remains of the project.
Can anything worthwhile be salvaged? That’s what Powell (John Lynch) and a “scientist” by the name of Dr. Healy (Morjana Alaoui) are after, but what they find would best be left buried.
The Hybrid is a high-tech haunted house thriller and the heavily armed team of mercenaries is basically your “victim pool.” First they have to work their way through hostile country — that’s a good half-hour of suspense — just to get to the “haunted house.” Then comes all the creepy things that go with an unstoppable creature being set loose upon them … one by one by one they die!
Cool creature, great suspense and plenty of action makes Mongrel Media’s The Hybrid a must for genre fans during this Christmas season.
