Following an impressive year on the international film festival circuit, Flytrap is now streaming on Amazon Instant Video and Google Play. It will be available to rent or own starting August 23rd on iTunes, Vudu, and more.
On the day he arrives in the U.S. to teach at UCLA, paranoia roots itself into James Pond, a reserved English astronomer, who is seduced and quickly trapped in a suburban Los Angeles house by the mysterious and alluring Mary Ann and her equally bizarre housemates. Are these people in a doomsday cult? What do they want? Are they even human? This psychological, sci-fi thriller hybrid unfolds as James attempts to escape his freakishly foreign captors. Even if he could escape, would the world believe his crazy story?
