Other Worlds Austin is at it again and they are premiering Prisoner X* next Thursday, June 23, 9:00 p.m., at Flix Brewhouse in Austin, Texas. Directed by Gaurav Seth and based on the Hugo-nominated novella “Truth” by Robert Reed, this gritty sci-fi is somewhat reminiscent of 12 Monkeys and The Jacket. It features actors Julian Richings (CUBE, The VVitch), Romano Orzari (Turbo Kid, Assassin’s Creed- voice of Giovanni Auditore da Firenze), and Michelle Nolden (RED, Haunter).

As always, Bears Fonte and Co. satisfied my lust for otherworldly erotica and Lovecraftian Horror with this tentacle-filled gore fest.
"The Well is a well-written commentary about how a vital resource could result in the devolution of the world that we know. Hammock presents a strong female lead with a strong moral compass, who can survive and fight while showing compassion for others."
