Christopher Webster [Celluloid 05.05.09] movie news scifi action webseries



Influenced by equal shares Hitchcock, The Twilight Zone and the pulp scifi of Star Wars, Chris Preksta's The Mercury Men looks like a rollicking return to the classic cliffhanger serials of the 20s and 30s. But don't expect "an homage with cheesy dialogue, corny characters, and bad special effects" says Prekstra." The Mercury Men has been designed "as a modern story with the great suspense, danger, and mystery the serials were known for at the time."

Edward Borman, a lowly government office drone, finds himself trapped, when the deadly Mercury Men seize his office building as a staging ground for their nefarious plot. Aided by a daring aerospace engineer from a mysterious organization known as “The League,” Edward must stop the invaders and their doomsday device, the Gravity Engine.

The new web series, written and directed by Christopher Preksta (Captain Blasto) stars Mark Tierno (Day of the Dead, The Road) and Curt Wootton (Captain Blasto), premieres this fall on mercuryseries.com and iTunes.

Big thanks to the Twitch crew for alerting us to this stellar looking web-series.
