Plot Teaser

The already hazardous facilities of Aperture Science comes another disaster! In this version of Aperture, there are no robots they'll ever help them, only ones that'll burst you to bits and riddle holes in you. All the tools the scientific endeavors only have are a bat, a rifle, a bow and arrow, a laptop, and their wits. Can they survive wave after wave of lethal machines and death traps and save Aperture from a nuclear disaster?

Plot Summary

Production & Concept

The film was originally conceptualized, according to both actor and director Ross Chan, during his session with the song Still Alive, that he visualized the credits scene with the cast shown according to the beats of the first verse of the song. This idea was later implemented in the actual credits scene, when they asked the editors to "let me handle this."

The song Opposites Attract by Paula Abdul, used during the dance scene halfway through the movie, was suggested by co-lead Matthew Cheung. This originally came from the original writing, when Matthew supervised Ross Chan in the first draft, this song was played in the background. Further stitching implemented this late-80s classic into the film as an indicator for the relationship between characters Dalton Forstall and Caroline Johnson. Another issue with this song being in the movie, is its retro theme doesn't really fit the theme of relationship in a technologically advanced science facility, so its organ track was volumed-down, and re-recorded in the studio.

The character's names have very special origins. The name of Dalton Forstall, was inspired by both The Exorcism and The Hunger Games for the first name Dalton, Former iOS design vice president of Apple Scott Forstall for the last name. Ross noted that Scott was "one of the things Apple is most associated with [on the screens]", that he wished to bring "his enthusiasm" to the character.

The name Vector Samson, suggested by Matthew himself, was split as both "worst thing in Math" (Vector Angles), and "the asshole in Poker Night 2", referencing Brock Samson from the Venture Bros. series.

Caroline Johnson is actually a nod suggested by Ross, which he suggests that "Caroline might have married Cave", but decides to remain silent on the matter.
