Thomas Jacobs is a brilliant engineer who invents a device that enables him to enter the mind of a patient and observe them in their memories.
Having run out of funds to complete the project, he reluctantly partners with the justice department who plans to use it to see criminals enact their crimes, BUT, during the first test on a convict, Tom gets trapped, leaving behind a pregnant wife and his unconscious body.
For four years Tom is stuck in the criminal’s mind, until he discovers a glitch in the system. It soon becomes a race for survival, as Tom is forced to work with the reluctant criminal to find a way out.
2012 SXSW Film Festival
An earnest indie effort that borrows a lot of nifty ideas from several brilliant sci-fi writers, while also bringing some refreshing novelty of its own to the party.
- Scott Weinberg, Twitch Film
A complex, fast-paced story that will keep you guessing until its end.
Extracted is quite simply low-budget sci-fi at it’s best, proving that you don’t need tens of millions of dollars to make a great sci-fi movie. You just need great storytelling and great actors to see it through. Extracted had plenty of both.
- Javi Perez, Playmaker Magazine
“Extracted is a prime example of how to construct an intelligent science-fiction film by working scope and budgetary limitations into the story’s design.”
“A good sci-fi story and actors playing their parts rather well.”
