Sean Cameron Michael portrayed all types of characters in his acting career spanning decades.
But, never as a sick-and-twisted diabolical teacher who turned a life-surviving lesson plan on his former students by strapping explosive vests on them.
In Triggered, the action-horror film pits friends versus friends for survival as the timer on their explosive ticks away.
The movie stars Liesl Ahlers (Friend Request, Daylight), Reine Swart (The Lullaby, Z Nation), Sean Cameron Michael (The Last Days of American Crime), Suraya Rose Santos (Professionals, Fried Barry), Steven John Ward (Vagrant Queen), and Russell Crous (Escape Room). Alastair Orr directed the movie from a script from David D. Jones (The Passenger).
Here’s the official synopsis of the movie:
Nine friends, all harboring a dark secret, go camping in the woods. After a wild night of partying, they wake with suicide bombs strapped to their chests, all with varying times on their countdown clocks. They decide to work out how to disarm the bombs or find help—until they discover they can ‘take’ one another’s time by killing each other.
