Writer/director Billy Senese’s horror thriller Closer to God is a modern-day Frankenstein tale that questions how far scientific discovery should be pursued.

Dr. Victor Reed is a brilliant geneticist who has just achieved a huge scientific breakthrough by successfully cloning the first human being, an adorable baby girl named Elizabeth. This immediately becomes a media spectacle and ignites a firestorm of debate concerning the moral and religious implications of such a discovery. Soon, Dr. Reed and his family lose all sense of privacy and safety as they are swarmed by protesters and the media. Their biggest threat, however, could be Victor’s own secret.

Closer to God maintains an ominous, brooding tone that begs the biggest question of all: What is Dr. Reed hiding?
