Prototype Trailer Gives Us A Murderous Kill Bot

By RodneyHatfieldJr for Movies

When Prototype was announced it intrigued me. As a society, we are not far off from inviting domesticated robots into our homes to take on a list of duties we don’t want to do (Roomba is of the devil and nothing will change my mind). Most everyone would love to have a droid to keep things neat and tidy. Naturally, that would lead to a pet sitter and even a babysitter droid. The options for automaton are limitless. 

Sounds so wonderful. However what about the dangers? What if when we finally have slave robots, the droid glitched and decided to barricade you inside and take you and your family hostage. Next, it starts a massacre. This is the concept of Prototype. It gives us a terrifying situation that brings these fears to life. And we have the trailer.

The synopsis for Prototype goes like this:

In the near future, life-like androids with artificial intelligence have been created to help people with menial household tasks. The prototype, One, created by Roger Marshall and tested by his family, proves to be popular but flawed. Roger has been working on a new model, Two, whose improved features show promise of its super-human abilities. As tensions rise between Roger and wife Shelley, the androids malfunction and the lives of the whole family are soon in danger of Two’s sinister plans.

The film stars Danielle Scott, Stephanie Lodge, Andrew Rolfe, Jamie Robertson, Tom Taplin, and Zoe Purdy. Prototype arrives on VOD beginning April 5.
