Lifshitz and Raphael Margules, the film features segments directed by genre veterans Eduardo Sanchez (The Blair Witch Project, Exists),  Gregg Hale (V/H/S 2), Timo Tjahjanto (The Night Comes For Us, Headshot), and Liam O’Donnell (Skyline, Beyond Skyline). The distributor is planning a fall multi-platform release, and will be begin handling foreign sales at Cannes under its partnership with Film Mode Entertainment.

Created by Chris White, the genre-bending story takes place during a series of worldwide black outs, after which millions of mysterious cosmic anomalies appear everywhere across the planet. While many flee from the sentient objects, the real terror sets in as people are drawn toward – and into – them.

J.D. Lifshitz and Raphael Margules produced together with Brad Miska, Chris White, and Bloody Disgusting’s Tom Owen. Miska, co-founder of Bloody Disgusting, previously produced the V/H/Sfilm trilogy as well as Under the BedA Horrible Way to Die and Southbound.  White first collaborated with Miska on V/H/S Viral. His other credits include The ABCS of Death and My Super Psycho Sweet 16. BoulderLight, who will handle sales on a few select Asian-territories for the film, recently produced IFC Midnight’s hit Pledge. Pigrat’s Griffin Devine and Alyssa Devine also serve as producers with Liam O’Donnell,  while Screen Media’s Mike Messina, Seth Needle and Conor McAdam are on board as executive producers.

“We are thrilled to be working with Screen Media to help bring this innovative new anthology to life with so many creative collaborators we admire,” said Lifshitz.

“We’ve been looking for a project to do together with these producers for a long time, and we feel really lucky to find one with this caliber of talent involved,” said Needle. “Heads up, genre fans.”
