Isolation Paranoia Thriller ‘Machination’ Trailer Featuring Steffi Thake
“I don’t want to get sick, please don’t come close to me!” Nexus Production has revealed the official trailer for an indie film titled Machination, an isolation thriller about a woman losing it during the pandemic. A glimpse into the life of a sensitive and anxious woman as she struggles to cope in self-isolation. With fear mounting and the demands of the world closing in, she is forced to confront her past and the monsters that surround her… both without and within. Malta actress Steffi Thake stars as Maria in the film, with a small cast including Rambert Attard, Andrew Bonello, Sean James Sutton, & Mikhail Basmadjian. The film “is a psychological horror-drama exploring the affect the COVID pandemic has had on mental health. Claustrophobic, intense, led by a gripping performance by Steffi Thake, Machination is a sharp, spiraling thriller about the consequences of breathing in constant fear.” Indeed, we need to try not to let fear ruin us.
Here’s the official trailer (+ poster) for Sarah Jayne & Ivan Malekin’s Machination, from YouTube:
