Madelines is a 2022 American science fiction comedy horror film about two entrepreneurs who discover time travel has a cloning snag.

Directed by Jason Richard Miller from a screenplay co-written with Brea Grant (director of Tattered Hearts; 12 Hour Shift).

The Bossk VFX-GMMG Films production stars Brea Grant (The StylistAfter Midnight; Bad Apples; Dead Night), Parry Shen (Automation; Victor Crowley; Hatchet) and Richard Riehle (Digging to Death; West of Hell; Texas Chainsaw 3D).

Working in their garage, indie entrepreneurs Madeline (Brea Grant) and Owen (Parry Shen) discover the secret of time travel. There’s only one hitch: a bug in the code creates a new copy of Madeline at the same time every day…


“The story desensitizes the viewer to the violence as it attempts to give a slapstick feel, but it ends on a nastier note and a confusing epilogue. The logic and science is a bit flawed. Most of the story seems padded and it could have probably been edited down to a more effective short.” Fears Mag

“The horror/comedy genre is tough to stick to, but we get a perfect balance here, neither of which is the primary genre, and the creative team behind the film very much knew what they were creating. The script, the acting, the score, the look, everything just melded together to create what I think was a delightful experience.” 5/5 The Mail Newspapers

” …the film manages to entertain despite its minuscule cast of three and limited setting […] It’s not a movie that can stand up to much logical scrutiny, though. And both the horrific and comedic elements could have been dialed up somewhat. But as an experiment, I think the team is on to something.” 2/5 UK Film Review

In the US, Gravitas Ventures will release Madelines on a date to be announced.
