One man's intense desire to truly understand our reality could cost him everything in the new movie Quantum Suicide, and ahead of the film's world premiere beginning Sunday, August 13th, and running through Sunday, August 20th, as part of this year's virtual programming at the Popcorn Frights Film Festival, we're thrilled to exclusively reveal the trailer for the mind-bending sci-fi psychological thriller!

Writer and director Gerrit Van Woudenberg shared his excitement for world premiering Quantum Suicide in the virtual lineup of this year's Popcorn Frights Film Festival:

“Quantum Suicide is a terrifying story of obsession – of one man’s quest to understand the nature of reality and the lengths he goes in service of his delusion. With elements of psychological horror, thriller and science fiction, it’s a fantastic fit for Popcorn Frights’ lineup of mind-bending and terrifying genre films. It is truly an honor to be premiering at the leading genre festival of the Southeast.”

In his obsession he finds clarity and the key to understanding our reality. But, there is one final test he must perform.
