Chimera Strain

Chimera Strain(2019)

This is a deeply ponderous film that completely took me by surprise. It stars Henry Ian Cusick of Lost fame and Kathleen Quinlan in a small but important role as a evil scientist. Cusick plays a stem cell researcher whose wife had perished of a malady which has also afflicted his children. He wants to freeze them until he finds a cure and starts working on it thanks to his ex boss(Quinlan) who gives him the space and means but has ulterior motives. This is just scratching the surface and the film is deeply layered. The cinematography and acting are top notch, but the director should have cut some scenes- but that's just me.
