When pioneering scientist Ann Waterman is kidnapped, becoming a human lab rat in a futuristic prison cell, she must confront her personal demons and decipher the identity of her captor to uncover a mystery of global significance.
Influenced by thrillers such as ‘Dial M For Murder’ (Alfred Hitchcock, 1954) and ‘Oldboy’ (Chan-wook Park, 2003), Slammer is a story with a future-tech twist, presenting a combination of reality and alternative reality: fiction just outside our grasp.
Slammer’s world is off-kilter, mirroring the mental state of its inhabitants. Subtle visual clues suggest both who is in control, and who is being controlled.
This independent British film was made during the Covid-19 pandemic. Its first preview screening took place at London’s iconic Odeon Luxe in Leicester Square in September 2021.
