Isolated on the rig, their routine night is interrupted when a crew member goes missing and an extensive search proves futile.

Surrounded by nothing but raging ocean with no hope of escape, the roughnecks must survive the stormy night with an unrelenting force of death hunting them down.

The Rig on IMDb


The Rig was shot on location in Morgan City, Louisiana, onboard an actual offshore oil rig. Now decommissioned and used by drilling companies as a training facility, the "Mr. Charlie" rig is also the oldest submersible drilling rig in the world. With a talented cast led by William Forsythe and Art LaFleur and a crew helmed by first-time director Peter Atencio, The Rig is a sci-fi thriller that calls back to classic, intense suspense films. The film was produced completely independently by James D. Benson, and full worldwide distribution rights are currently available.
