(February 7th, 2017) DefTone Pictures Studios Inc. is an independent filmmaking company based in Buffalo, NY. DefTone’s latest film, STAR (Space Traveling Alien Reject) will have its world premiere right here in Western New York! Over the past few years DefTone Pictures Studios and Director Adam R Steigert have produced various titles such as the science fiction film Not Human (which is now available on DVD/VOD) and the horror/comedy A Grim Becoming.
The science fiction/thriller STAR is the story of the once famous writer Greg Vincent who is now a struggling alcoholic. Looking for inspiration for his next story so that he can pay off his debts to the notorious crime lord Angelia Branco, Greg finds himself doing a meet and greet at a library on the outskirts of the small village of Metsburgh. Enter STAR, a reject alien escaping death on his home world of Mars. Greg encounters this strange, blue, wise-cracking alien after they find themselves both hiding in the same cabin. With a deadline given by the mob and an alien race hot on STAR’s trail, who will be able to save them? Enter Alex Creed, the former star of a series of grindhouse films such as Devon Danger vs. the Atomic Space Zombies. Creed is joined by Marissa, a teenaged diehard fan of his, who is also searching for her way in life. Can this band of misfits save STAR from a hideous fate and also Greg from himself?
STAR [Space Traveling Alien Reject] promises to broaden the age limitations normally seen for horror and science fiction films however some material may not be suitable for children. Buffalo native Adam R Steigert helms the project as Director/Writer and unites with many local Buffalo actors such as Richard Satterwhite as Alex Creed and A Grim Becoming co-star Aryn Fitzgerald as Marissa. The film also stars newcomer Christopher Barbis in the role of Greg Vincent, Lori Cholewka as Lana, scream queen Nicola Fiore as Sarah, supermodel Melyssa Jade as Angela Branco and Patrick Mallette voicing/puppterring STAR.
