Build Your Virtual Grindhouse with the future reality horror Algorithm: Bliss.
Trips to the cinema to re-watch the latest Marvel Cinematic Universe release are on hold. Studio blockbusters are delayed, rescheduled, and rescheduled again. It’s the perfect opportunity to transform your pad into a cult friendly Werepad and screen the type of cult horror and sci-fi chillers usually relegated to the stickiest downtown grindhouses.
I miss real grindhouses, and I miss weird, risk-taking B-horror movies like Algorithm: Bliss.
A squishy tech thriller from directors Dena Hysell-Cornejo and Isak Borg, Algorithm: Bliss, arrives via video on demand platforms in time to pause your therapy app. It’s a laugh-along, guiltless good time.
A developer named Vic (Sean Faris) aims to impact communities for good with an app that delivers a feeling of nirvana to users. When the app becomes corrupted, Vic remains committed to keeping his app online, no matter the deadly consequences to his girlfriend, Elizabeth (Sarah Roemer).
Indie thrillers like Algorithm: Bliss enjoy a fair shot connecting with sizable audiences in the time of Corona. Movie fans who embrace their trashy love for exploitation movies gain an opportunity to watch emerging leading man Sean Faris put a fresh spin on the mad scientist role. It’s also a chance to witness the storytelling skills of directors Dena Hysell-Cornejo and Isak Borg. They are two indie directors who know how to generate laughter and screaming with a garage band budget.
Laughter. Screams. Cover-your-eyes thrills. Who needs a therapy app when the cult horror Algorithm: Bliss lands on your sofa.
