UPDATE....here's the trailer for those who haven't seen it!!  

"We only had good intentions..." says Dr. Donovan Miller to one of his patients when asked what went wrong.  

"Terminal Legacy" is a micro-budget, apocalyptic sci-fi thriller about an experiment for a new miracle drug that spirals rapidly out of control.  The scientists responsible must then race to prevent an apocalyptic event from happening.  

Shot on the RED ONE & RED MX camera systems, "Terminal Legacy started out as a small, one-location concept that grew into something larger, mostly by accident.  

"Terminal Legacy" has been referred to as a "thinking man's action/zombie movie."  It is told from the unique perspective of the progenitors of an apocalypse; the men responsible.  It is not the conventional "survivors on the run" story.  You watch how the ultimate cure is created, how is spirals out of control, and the attempt to avert it's side effects.  

"Terminal Legacy" was shot in 20 days at several locations in New York City and in Newark, DE.  We had an unbelievably devoted cast and crew who went above and beyond the call of duty.  We're currently in post-production
