Ruthless Pictures is behind the film ‘The Device’, and is said to begin filming at the end of this month.

If you have seen the film ‘Invoking’, then you know exactly how well this team works together.
The Device will bring us an alien picture that is sure to change the scenery for all extraterrestrial films from here to come. We are excited about this film and cannot wait to see what they truly come up with. A press release was made available and now you can learn all about it so far as well. Read on and see if this would be a film worth checking out, we know we will!
The Press Release on ‘The Device’:
Exec produced by Jesse Baget under his Ruthless Pictures banner, The Device follows Abby and Rebecca Powell, who haven’t seen each other since a traumatic event in their youth ripped them apart. Reunited for the first time in over a decade, the sisters take a trip to spread their mother’s ashes at a secluded lake. As the sisters reconnect and try to heal old wounds, something waits in the nearby woods. A strange object, made not by the hands of man, beckons them to it. As they begin to try to unlock its secrets, Abby is plagued by nightmares of an alien presence that seem all too real. Little do the sisters realize that this object is actually a device, one with a purpose too horrible to comprehend. As the events of the past and the present begin to merge, new discoveries will threaten to tear apart their newly reformed family, and the inhuman creators of the device will attempt to finish a terrible experiment begun years before.
Of the project, director Berg says, “I’m very excited to be able to bring a story like this to life. Alien abduction has been a fascination of mine since I was a kid, and I’ve known many people with encounter stories. I grew up listening to these stories, and for me the existence of aliens has never been in doubt. The October People have created what I think is a great character-driven story to help explore the idea of alien abduction and its effects on individuals and their relationships. It’s a thought-provoking story that will also leave audiences frightened of what might lurk in the night skies above.”
Writer/producer Portanova believes, “There is no scarier horror scenario to me than an alien abduction. The idea that at any point in your life these creatures can appear and bend you completely to their will and there is nothing you can do about it frightens me to the core. I grew up on alien abduction films such as Intruders and Fire in the Sky and paranormal investigation shows like ‘Unsolved Mysteries.’ It’s been a lifelong ambition of mine to tell an alien abduction horror story, and I am very excited that The October People are reteaming with Ruthless Pictures to bring it to life.”
