Atomica, directed by Dagen Merrill and filmed mostly in a Cold-War-era Titan II missile silo, stars Habel as a young safety inspector, Abby Dixon, forced to fly out and investigate when communications go down at a remote power plant.
Once inside the facility, mysterious clues and strange behaviors cause Abby to have doubts about the sanity, and perhaps identities, of the two employees (Tom Sizemore and Dominic Monaghan) onsite.
Sarah Habel was born and raised in suburban Detroit, got her start in film and TV with a supporting role in Drew Barrymore’ s “Whip It.” Habel’ s other credits include the indie films “Warren,”“Hostel Part III” and a guest starring role on Starz’ s “Party Down.” She lives in Los Angeles with her husband and daughter, where she knits, bakes and practices other grandmotherly arts.
We chat about Atomica and what made Mrs. Grundy– a character she calls “very divisive”– tick.
