Nanotechnology has deadly applications in the sci-fi horror film that goes into release tomorrow, October 1.

Gravitas Ventures is bringing IMPLANTED to digital platforms. Written and directed by Fabien Dufils, it stars Michelle Girolami, Ivo Velon, Susan O’Doherty, Tony Sallemi, Edouard Montoute, Martin Ewens, Sunny Koll and Mark Resnik. The synopsis: “Sarah [Girolami], a struggling young woman living in Brooklyn, agrees to volunteer as an experimental test subject for a pharmaceutical company called Dynamic Health Cure and to be implanted with the LEXX nanochip. Sarah hopes that the money received for her participation will solve her financial troubles and help her to take care of her mother, who has Alzheimer’s. A nanochip is implanted in her cerebral cortex. It is designed with artificial intelligence technology to take control of the body at the inception of any disease or illness. When the implant turns sinister and orders her to commit crimes, Sarah is plunged into a murderous spiral with only one choice: to live or die.”
