Chimera


A brilliant but disturbed scientist decides to freeze his children alive, while he races against time to cure their deadly genetic disease by unlocking the secret of immortality encoded within the DNA of the Turritopsis jellyfish.

Imagine a world without aging, injury, disease or death. Quint’s obsesson with this utopian dream pushes him to the edge of his sanity.

Rather than risk losing his dying children, Quint decides to preserve them in a cryonic ametabolic state while he researches genetic modifications that would induce in them the regenerative abilities of the “immortal” Turritopsis jellyfish.

Quint’s desperate need for embryonic stem cells sets him on a collision course with Masterson, a shadowy figure, whose bizarre motives trigger a chain of events with far-reaching consequences.

Part sci-fi, part thriller, part horror, and all outstanding! Excellent review of Chimera in TG Geek

user
“Chimera” is part sci-fi, part thriller, part horror, and all outstanding! "From the first few minutes of this film I immediately realized that I was in store for something entirely different. It doesn’t play like your typical monster horror movie, rather it shows us the horror of humanity and exposes some of our darker natures and obsessions, as well as highly compromised morality, all in the name of science.  Chimera is a very intelligent film, and unlike...
