From the Director of Penumbra and Here Comes the Devil, Late Phases is Adrián García Bogliano's first English language feature. Written by Eric Stolze, the film will tell the story of Ambrose McKinley, a cantankerous blind vet who moves into a retirement community only to learn the residents there have been dying, not from old age, but from dog attacks. After surviving his own encounter with a canine one night, Ambrose comes to believe the assailants are much more than mere dogs...

MPI's Dark Sky Films is co-producing Late Phases with Zak Zeman's Site B Productions, while Larry Fessenden and Brent Kunkle will produce for Glass Eye Pix.
