Ingress is a detailed look into the fears we all harbour inside ourselves. The fears that haunt our sub-conscience. It follows three individuals who are connected in their lives by must face their fears on their own. Since the day of its creation, alongside the guidance of Heaven, Earth has been desired by Hell. Four people are connected in more ways then one. Each of them have to face the worst fears in a house that has trapped them with a dark secret from their past.
One must face their fear, and in reality most people supress them or ignore them. Ingress focuses on four characters who will either face their fear and succeed or die if they fail. Many people are scared of the “unknown.” The unknown can branch out to many areas such as the hereafter, the next ten years, or even tomorrow. Many people are too scared to take the path they want, because of what may lie ahead.
Ingress stars Dennis Andres, Sandy Duarte (Dora Award Winner) and L.A. Lopes. Principal photography is currently being shot in Toronto and is scheduled to be completed in July, 2013.

Unexplainable sounds and harrowing encounters escalate until Karen is brutally attacked by the invisible force. Under media pressure, Michael calls back Nick Rosa, their false accomplice. Nick, shaken, runs from the horror, leaving Karen to face the demons alone… or so it seems. This new horror/thriller will be darker than DaSilva previous film “The Unleashed”.
