It’s been a year since the movie Phasma Ex Machina came to my attention. I was instantly excited about it. It looked intense, thoughtful, and spooky. Not spooky in the sense of jump out of your seat scary, but psychologically haunting.
I’ve watched it’s progress closely for the past year. I would’ve loved to view it at one of the movie festivals it ran at, but that didn’t happen.
However, others did, and Phasma Ex Machina got the acclaim the trailer promised it might. People loved it! It was Winner of the Flyway Film Fest, Best of the Fest Winner of the Anaheim International Film Festival, and Best of the Fest Winner of the Arizona Underground Film Festival, in addition to being an Official Selection in several other Film Festivals.
All that did was make me want to see it more. Well, guess what? In a recent press release I learned I will get to watch it on DVD later this year!
Screen Media Films is proud to announce the acquisition of Matt Osterman’s debut feature “Phasma Ex Machina” from XYZ Films.

Critics including Dennis Harvey of Variety proclaim it “an impressive feature debut from writer/director Matt Osterman” and Colin Covert of the Star Tribune called it “sharply intelligent…this is a winner.”
If you haven’t seen it yet but want to see what got me so excited, here’s the trailer for Phasma Ex Machina/Ghost From The Machine:
