Teaser Trailer Released for Rod Smith’s Upcoming Film, ‘Distortion’

A teaser trailer has been released for director Rod Smith’s (Cognitive Psychosis) upcoming psychological horror film, Distortion. The film stars Helene Udy (My Bloody Valentine), Dawna Lee Heising (Garden Party Massacre 2018 – read our review here), Sadie Katz (Clown Fear 2020 – read our review here), Tatiana Larrea (Sins Of The Mother), and Michael Beran (Cleaner). It will be released in 2021.


The story begins five years after Vincent, a psychopathic serial torturer and ritualistic killer is presumed murdered, but his body is never found. Dr. Epstein has invited four women, Vincent’s only living victims to the home where he once tortured and ritualistically sacrificed over 100 women to his God. Dr. Epstein convinces each of the women that she can cure them of the evil that haunts their lives. But Epstein herself is shrouded in mystery and may be withholding her own sinister intentions.

The director of the film notes:

I am Rod Smith, the writer and director of ‘Distortion.’ Some of you will remember me as the writer of ‘Mayday’ and ‘Lockdown’, two films distributed by Lionsgate. I also wrote ‘Cognitive Psychosis’ and ‘Sins of the Mother’. I will be directing a $3 million sci-fi thriller in 2022. I am especially excited about my upcoming film ‘Distortion’ because the cast and crew are entirely female and it is a trilogy. I would like to invite each of you to become a part of ‘Distortion’, which will also be sent to Lionsgate & Netflix for approval. We are running an IndieGoGo campaign with a myriad of perks HERE.
