SCINTILLA, a science fiction thriller is set deep underground in the wilds of a former Soviet state where strange genetic experiments are taking place.
A war weary mercenary is hired to lead a company scientist to the secret underground laboratory and with his team of mercenaries to steal the research in the laboratory. Along the way the good people face dangerous militia involved in a bloodthirsty civil war, strange monsters lurking in the abandoned tunnels of the old Soviet bunker and finally they meet the scientist running the genetic experiments and her terrifying secret.
The film has inspired a newly formed super-group THE SCINTILLA PROJECT, fronted by BIFF BYFORD / Saxon, who released their album THE HYBRID on August 18th, as reported by The Metal Hammer Spotlight.
Biff Byford: ’I was introduced to Lionel Hicks by Toby Jepson while recording ‘Call To Arms’. This was leading Saxon to write a song for the Lionel Hicks produced film ‘Scintilla’. As the film developed through production, our minds began working – maybe we could put together a concept album based and inspired by the film.’
