Acclaimed Director Eric Zimmerman–responsible for some of the most iconic rock, metal, and industrial videos in history, including Nine Inch Nails’ “Down in It” and “Head Like a Hole,” and Soundgarden’s“Jesus Christ Pose” and “Rusty Cage,” among many others–has expanded his legendary dark vision into feature films with the release of Caller ID Entity.
Based on actual phone messages and testimonials, this sci-fi movie explores phenomena from victims of mind control research and features James Duval, Nathan Bexton, Denny Kirkwood, Douchan Gersi, Triton B. King, Carrie Hayes, Roxy Saint, Elissa Dowling, with John Cho and Peter Greene. Zimmerman’s film debut will be released via ITN Distribution.
The film is, as expected, is set to a phenomenal soundtrack with music from Scanner, New World Revolution, Lenka Morávková, Igor Amokian, Jeff Boynton, VJ Avant, John D. Norten, Trash Deity, Acucrack, Lab Report, Missions, DJ Swamp, and more
An Exclusive Premiere Screening of the film was held at Ahrya Fine Arts By Laemmle on January 10th.
“This movie was inspired by real-life phone messages I received from an anonymous woman. The messages are very disturbing, and I imagined what the story behind them could be. As I investigated further, I discovered a whole underground network of psychological torture, victims of mind control experimentation. Everything in the movie is based on real messages and victim testimonials. It makes you wonder where this technology is really going in the near future,” explains Zimmerman. “To reverse-engineer a story from actual phone messages is a different approach to making a movie. I’m not sure if it’s ever been done before. The style also reflects the fragmentation and paranoia of having your brain hacked. This project, though challenging, inspired all of us to push beyond the limits of the traditional film-making process.
