A sci-fi/thriller/horror film about extraterrestrials and one man's frightening journey to discover balance and what it really means to be human.

What is The Three all about?

The Three is an extraterrestrial sci-fi/horror film about paranoia in times of uncertainty and exploring what it really means to be a human being. This is the first narrative film to ever explore the relationship between three classifications of extraterrestrials: The Insectoids, the Reptilians and the Greys. 

We are looking forward to telling a story in which a man’s “Inner-Space” is just as frightening as “Outer-Space.” This movie shows that in times of peril and uncertainty, human beings can become more monstrous than monsters themselves.


When Brian LaRue becomes convinced that his father is being visited by extraterrestrials, he takes it upon himself to seek out answers from Jonas Allenbach, a local recluse who claims his son was abducted seventeen years earlier. But as Brian delves deeper into the mysteries surrounding what Jonas refers to as ‘The Three,’ terrifying realizations come to light and Brian must confront the many demons of his past, which just might be exactly what ‘The Three’ want. 

‘The Three’ turns the alien abduction genre on its head with this story of one man’s frightening journey to discover what it really means to be human.

Notable Cast and Crew

Lew Temple

"I had the pleasure of sitting down two nights ago, and reading THE THREE. I have to say how pleasantly surprised and pleased I was by it's content. I felt that the writing was solid, painful and true. I was very engrossed by the story, and was able to envision each scene. I thought that the script caught the essence of paranoia, and of depression and helpless loss. It would be a special opportunity to lift Brian LaRue, and all of his colors."

  • Born and raised in the Bayou Country of Louisiana, Lew Temple is an extraordinarily diverse actor, who is often compared to a chameleon. He has the unique ability to take any character and make it his own. He is known for his work in AMC’s The Walking Dead, Unstoppable, Lawless  and Rob Zombie's Halloween.

Lew has expressed great interest in playing the role of Brian LaRue in The Three.

Jim Ojala

"Great script!  Were either of you guys in the armed forces?  If not, you did your research. Feels very authentic. One of my favorite elements of the script is the cicadas being watchers for the aliens...brilliant and creepy."

  • You may not recognize his face, but you surely will recognize the faces he has created. Jim Ojala’s special makeup/creature effects are internationally renowned in film and television productions such as Hellboy II: The Golden Army, X-Men: The Last Stand, Buffy The Vampire Slayer, True Blood and Firefly.

The Impact

This is a film that will not only entertain, but it will also tackle deep, existential human issues. “The Three” will remind people that the word “alien” refers to more than just extraterrestrials. It is a word that can also be used to describe the unknown on our planet Earth. Few things are as frightening and unsettling than those which we cannot understand. Every human being on this planet has felt ostracized and alone at some point in his or her life. Every human being knows what it feels like to be an alien.
