Albert Pyun’s Nemesis franchise was a staple of the DTV era, with the Olivier Gruner starring first film exploding into video stores in 1992 and a further 3 installments released in 1995 and 1996 – probably because Pyun churned out the sequels in order to cash in on the popularity of the original… Why the history lesson? Well a FIFTH film in the franchise, Nemesis 5: The New Model, is currently in production! Pyun is not behind the camera this time, merely a producer, with filmmaker Dustin Ferguson (The Amityville Legacy) taking the directorial reigns.

It is the year 2077 and terrorist organization known as The Red Army Hammerheads now dominate the Earth. The fate of humanity now rests in the hands of The New Model, Ari Frost (Schuylar Craig). Trained under the wing of Alex Rain (Sue Price), she must form an army of Cyborg Humans to take down the regime and regain control. After all, 86.5% is still considered human…

Nemesis 5 stars Mel Novak (Game of Death), Dawna Lee Heising (Samurai Cop 2: Deadly Vengeance), Schuylar Craig (The Amityville Legacy, Camp Blood 4 &5), Daiane Azura, Edwin Garcia; and Sue Price, who reprises her franchise role of Alex Rain from Nemesis 2, 3 and 4.
