The Dragged Into Sunlight cast also includes Tru Collins, Rhys Wakefield, George Wendt, Abraham Benrubi, Chris McKenna, Graham Skipper, and Jeremy Gardner. Begos is producing the film with Josh Ethier for Channel 83 Films. The filmmaker previously directed 2013’s alien invasion film Almost Human and 2015’s psychokinesis thriller, The Mind’s Eye.

“I was always interested in making a film that walked the line between paranoia, hallucination, and nightmares and this story allowed me to explore those ideas and create something that I hope is very psychotropic in nature,” Begos tells EW. “I was mainlining a steady rotation of Abel Ferrara and Gaspar Noé from the writing process up through the production process, as I was looking to evoke to feeling of early 1970’s independent cinema — dirty, fast, dangerous, anything goes.”
