IndustryWorks Studio is proud to announce the Vancouver Premiere of “AMI” at the Vancouver Badass Film Festival. Nominated for 10 awards including Best Feature “AMI” will be the closing film on Sunday, March 31st, 10:30 pm at the Rio Theatre.  Created by Evan Tylor and James Clayton  and written and directed by Rusty Nixon , the film stars Debs Howard (iZombie, TV’s “The Good Doctor”), Sam Robert Muik (CW’s “Riverdale”), Phil Granger (Syfy’s “Ghost Wars”), Havana Guppy (Hulu’s “Shut Eye”) and Bonnie Hay (TV’s “A Million Little Things”) as the sinister “AMI.”

Check out the trailer:

“Move over ‘Siri’, ‘AMI’ is here to kill us all” – Luke Rodriguez, Modern Horrors

“Hey AMI, who should I kill today? According to Hollywood, technology has been trying to kill us for decades now — whether it’s HAL 9000 or Skynet — but in a new horror film called “AMI,” it’s your smart phone’s A.I. assistant, not unlike the Siri or Alexa currently sitting in your pocket, that does the dirty work”. – Brian Welk, The Wrap[

Young Cassie (Debs Howard) comes across a discarded cell phone with the latest artificial intelligence on it called AMI.  Cassie customizes the AI to sound like her deceased mother which soon fulfills the void in Cassie’s life.  As their relationship deepens, the nurturing and seemingly caring AI drives Cassie to perform heinous acts of murder that AMI convinces her are totally justifiable.

The film was executive produced by Evan Tylor and Paul Purton; produced by James Clayton and Blaine Anderson; and was co-produced by Marc Petey, Ryan Petey, and Zach Steele. 

IndustryWorks Studios’ Caterina Scrivano is handling worldwide distribution of “AMI”.  Look for the film to be released summer of 2019.
