Actor Graham Skipper has become a familiar face to genre fans over the past few years, thanks to his appearances in films like Almost Human, The Mind’s Eye, and Beyond the Gates, as well as the stage musical version of Re-Animator, in which he played obsessed scientist Herbert West. Now, Skipper has stepped behind the camera for the science fiction-horror movie, Sequence Break. The film stars the always-watchable Chase Williamson (John Dies at the End) as Oz, a reclusive video arcade repair technician whose reality begins to fracture when a mysterious new arcade machine appears in his shop and a beautiful young woman (Fabianne Therese) enters his life. Skipper tells EW that the film was, “inspired by films such as Videodrome, Altered States, and modern indie genre cinema. Sequence Break throws Oz down the rabbit hole, [where he finds] strange metaphysical forces, bizarre biomechanical mutations, Cronenbergian hallucinations, and a shocking self-realization.”

Sequence Break costars Fabianne Therese (Starry Eyes, Teenage Cocktail), Lyle Kanouse (Firefly, Auto Focus), Audrey Wasilewski (Big Love, RED), and Johnny Dinan (The Village). The film is written and directed by Graham Skipper and produced by Skipper, Kanouse, and Wasilewski.

Sequence Break will have its world premiere on opening night of the Chattanooga Film Festival on Thursday.
