Survival thrillers used to be all fun and games, watching people run from life-threatening antagonists - viral, extraterrestrial, or even human for that matter, as we went about our days. Then came 2020 and each of these thrillers seemed like a not so distant possibility. Joining the list of survival thrillers this year is Alastair Orr's horror thriller 'Triggered' where nine campers are united in their misery when they wake up with time bombs strapped to them. Sounds terrifying, right? Just the adrenaline rush we need as this year reaches its penultimate month. Here's all you need to know about the film:

Release date

'Triggered' premieres this Friday, November 6, digitally on virtual theatres, available to buy or rent at ease.


According to the official synopsis of the movie, "Terror strikes when nine campers wake up with suicide bombs strapped to their chests, all with varying times on their countdown clocks."


Liesl Ahlers leads the cast in the role of Erin, one of the unwitting hostages of whatever sick fun mysterious antagonist is having, toying with the nine victims. You might remember her as the super creepy Marina from the psychological thriller, 'Friend Request', starring opposite The 100's Alycia Debnam Carey. Ahlers is joined by Reine Swart as Rian, Sean Cameron Michael as Peterson, Suraya Rose Santos as Shea, Steven John Ward as Ezra, Russell Crous as Kato, Craig Urbani as Miller, Cameron Scott as PJ, Kayla Privett as Cici, Michael Lawrence Potter as Bobby, and Paige Bonnin as Amber.

The film is being helmed by Orr, whose credits include titles like 'Indigenous' (2014), 'House on Willow Street' (2016), and 'Vehicle 19' (2013). The script for 'Triggered' has been written by David D Jones, whose credits include TV series like 'The stem' which is still under production, and the 2018 hit, 'The Passenger'.


It starts as a high school reunion - jilted lovers and unrequited feelings come out to play as tension sprawls out during a campfire in the neck of the woods. There's heavy drinking and the consequences of that in the form of Peterson - the sick, twisted antagonist who straps time bomb vests onto the drunken campers after they pass out. What happens next with either blow your mind, or blow them up. Check it out right here!
