Luxembourg, June 3rd 2002 saw the start of the 9-week shoot of OCTANE, the first film from Random Harvest's genre film production label Four Horsemen Films. A new style of horror, OCTANE is a stylish, high-energy feature drawing on America's double obsession with religious cults and the open road.
When Senga (Madeleine Stowe) and teenage daughter, Nat (Mischa Barton), travel home at night on a freeway, they start to see the weirdest things...a couple picnicking by the side of a crashed car, a baby crawling up the middle of the road and a lone recovery man (Norman Reedus) who trawls the night for new car wrecks.
Then, at a roadside coffee stop, a mysterious backpacker (Bijou Phillips) lures Nat away with the offer of a compelling alternative existence with a young, blood-obsessed cult. Forced into a nightmarish chase, Senga becomes a woman plunged into a dark, deranged world, where she must confront her past in order to save her daughter. Testing times for mother and daughter but can Senga save Nat in time?
OCTANE'S all-star cast is led by Madeleine Stowe (WE WERE SOLDIERS, 12 MONKEYS, THE LAST OF THE MOHICANS) alongside Norman Reedus (BLADE 2, 8MM), Bijou Phillips (BULLY, ALMOST FAMOUS), Jonathan Rhys Meyers (BEND IT LIKE BECKHAM, VELVET GOLDMINE) and Mischa Barton (THE SIXTH SENSE, LAWN DOGS). OCTANE is directed by Marcus Adams (LONG TIME DEAD), written by Stephen Volk and produced by Alistair MacLean-Clark and Basil Stephens.
