Written and directed by Leigh Whannell
Writer / Director Leigh Whannell (SAW, INSIDIOUS) delivers an extraordinary and kinetic ride in his directorial debut.
After his wife is killed during a brutal mugging that also leaves him paralyzed, Grey Trace is approached by a billionaire inventor with an experimental cure that will “upgrade” his body. The cure - an Artificial Intelligence implant called STEM - gives Grey physical abilities beyond anything experienced and the ability to relentlessly claim vengeance against those who murdered his wife and left him for dead.
Produced Kylie du Fresne for Goalpost Pictures, Jason Blum for Blumhouse and Brian Kavanaugh-Jones, UPGRADE premiered and won the Midnighters Audience Award at SXSW 2018.
