Spawn: The Recall


Inspired by the original Spawn comic book. It follows an alternative storyline in which a mysterious woman struggles against evil forces.

Comic book fans get spoiled once again with a fascinating fan film: Spawn: The Recall. Exceeding all fan film production expectations, The Recall takes an interesting plot turn when it focuses its story on a mysterious woman and her son. The woman is a former witch, who is trying to live a normal life away from the darkness with her son. While they’re shopping in a supermarket, the child suddenly disappears. She starts looking for him, freaked out knowing evil forces are still lurking. A security guard comes to her help but while they are checking on the surveillance cameras, something happens. She can sense it, they are here…

Ye who enter, abandon all hope

After working as an independent director and VFX designer for years, Michael Paris decides to get started on a project that has been important to him for a long time : a movie starring Spawn. The opportunity to shoot in a supermarket turns the story toward the introduction of two new characters and a new story led by Spawn. The shooting is fast and with a limited team. After two years of post-production, nearly a thousand VFX shots, all sounds edited, designed and mixed, and the music composed, SPAWN:THE RECALL is released.

What really stands out for us in ‘The Recall’ is how the story flows along, the transitions between the real life and other world seamlessly natural. The attention to detail and especially sound, where we’re able the designers knew how to isolate the character’s mind between thoughts, real life and other worlds. Needless to say the visual effects are also a large part to the entire experience, and most of all, Spawn himself looks simple freakin’ awesome and true to the comics.
