Flux. 2014

Three went in. Three Came Out. None even a shadow of who

they once were.


When their car breaks down in the middle of nowhere, Dee, her

boyfriend Luke, and Luke's brother, Mike, seek help in the nearby

town of Purity Springs. But as they walk the vacant streets, the teens

make some disturbing discoveries. The seemingly deserted homes

each contain a sinister book with violent instructions on disciplining

children. The graveyard is full of unmarked crosses. Worst of all,

there's no way to contact the outside world.


When Purity Springs' inhabitants suddenly appear, Dee, Luke, and

Mike find themselves at the mercy of Elijah Hawkins, the town's charismatic leader who has his own plans for the three of them. Their only hope for survival is Elijah's enigmatic son, Joseph. And his game may be just as deadly as his father's.

Flux. 2015

When seventeen-year-old Lucas Marshall tests positive for the M0A1 gene--a genetic abnormality believed to predispose humans toward violence--he is shipped off to an impregnable government facility to undergo a battery of psychological tests aimed at making him crack. Now, having survived their tests and proven his mental stability, Lucas is labeled safe to return home.



But any hope Lucas has of a normal life is shattered when the van transporting him to the reintegration facility is forced off the road by a group of radicals intent on accessing the facility and exposing its dehumanizing practices. And Lucas is their ticket through the front door.

Spurred by rumors that the facility is secretly holding one of his old friends captive, Lucas and his bunk mate, Chris, agree to infiltrate the testing facility's inner sanctum. Once inside, Lucas's carefully laid plans begin to unravel and he's forced to seek help from those still locked within the facility's concrete walls. But when every genetic test claims your only allies are hardwired to become the next Charles Manson, it's impossible to know who to trust.
