Interruption is a sci fi thriller that centers around a small group of strangers thrown together after a brief extraterrestrial visit sends the Earth into a downward spiral. These survivors, each with their own background and story, struggle to live in a lifeless wasteland infested with desperate individuals who will stop at nothing for power and control.
Imbedded within the madness is an alien disease that has created a deadly new species in our food chain. The "Campers" as they call them, were human once but now exist for one purpose: to devour. When one of the survivors gets infected with the alien virus, they're faced with unavoidable decisions. Can they save him? Should they kill him? Whatever they do, they must act fast. He’s “turning” into a Camper more quickly than they realize. With shady characters afoot and biological terrors on the hunt, the group must bond together to make tough decisions for themselves and each other.

Interruption is a fresh take on the zombie mythology (think The Walking Dead but with aliens). Although the film centers on a small group of people, the story ends on a much bigger picture. Our heroes live in a complex apocalyptic world with a rich history, full of survivalist desperation and treachery. Each character has a fully developed and unique origin story. By the end of the film, we can’t help but wonder where these characters will go, who else they might find, and how they will defeat the humans-turned aliens in this desolate wasteland. There are ample opportunities for sequels/prequels, comics, video games, etc. to recoup investments.
