Star Trek: Voyager‘s Tim Russ has joined the cast of Vitals, a Saw-like horror film.
Russ will portray “The Surgeon,” in the film, which will also feature Charlene Amoia (How I Met Your Mother), Christopher Showerman (George of the Jungle 2), Claudia Wells (Back to the Future), and Sachin Metha (The Advocate). Marc Morgenstern will direct the film.
In Vitals, “An unassuming electrician wakes up in an abandoned Mexican motel room in a tub of ice and his kidney missing. It’s only a matter of time before he finds his wife in the adjacent room waiting to be the next victim to a horrible organ harvesting organization. Now they must use each other’s wits and skills to escape before their captors return and their dark secrets are revealed.”
Vitals “plays off of several base fears: foreign abduction, physical violation, [and] abandonment.”
Vitals begins filming in Los Angeles next month. Indiego fundraising for the film is currently in progress here.
