During my misspent youth I was shaken and definitely stirred by John Frankenheimer’s The Manchurian Candidate. Director Rob Schroeder cited that film as an influence from his mindbending thriller Ultrasound, which is now available On Demand. Full video interview with Schroeder is in the post.
Based on Conor Stechshulte’s graphic novel Generous Bosom, Ultrasound centers on a group of seemingly disparate individuals (Vincent Kartheiser, Chelsea Lopez, Bob Stephenson, Breeda Wool) who are linked via a shady medical research facility. Every single plot point in Ultrasound is turned on its head once the riveting third act kicks in, and you will either be on board with the sheer madness/ingenuity like me or be frustrated beyond belief.
