Robert, an amateur scientist, spends hours in in his basement full of wires and oscillators experimenting with sound waves. After he engineers a frequency that allows him to hypnotize other people, he lures his attractive new neighbors into his house to act as test subjects for his discovery.
Under Robert’s control, the oblivious couple are manipulated into increasingly deviant role-playing games that fuel Robert’s megalomania and allow him to indulge in his most twisted fantasies. But when investigations into the suspicious death of his wife threaten to bring an end to his demented operation, Robert must use his scientific breakthrough on a much larger scale in order to continue his warped research.
A sci-fi thriller soaked in the blackest of deadpan humor and full of twists and turns, LFO will touch your funnybone in all the most inappropriate places.
“A DIABOLICAL JOY.”
“A FILM WITH AN EXCEPTIONAL AMOUNT OF INTRIGUE, MYSTERY, AND LAUGHS THAT BEGS TO BE SEEN – AND TALKED, OR BETTER YET, DEBATED ABOUT FOR YEARS TO COME.”
–TC DAILY PLANET
“BOTH DELIGHTFULLY SILLY AND DARKLY NASTY. PROVOKES AS MUCH THOUGHT AS LAUGHTER, AND IS AS CHILLING AS IT IS FUNNY.”
“****! A STRANGE AND RATHER DARKLY FUNNY EXPLORATION OF MANIPULATION AND POWER.”
