Imagine - Await Further Instructions

Johnny Kervorkian / GB, 2018 / 91 min.

Both eerie and hilarious throwback to old-school British horror and sci-fi, with a touch of Black Mirror.

Poster await further instructions

At Christmas, Nick introduces his new girlfriend Annji to his family. They get off to a rocky start, but this is just the beginning of the real nightmare, as next morning the whole house turns out to be covered in black metal. Both eerie and hilarious throwback to old-school British horror and sci-fi, with a touch of Black Mirror.

'Awaits further instructions', says the telly as soon as the family has discovered they are prisoners in their own house. Before long they are split into two camps. One led by the father who is all for obeying instructions, the other consisting of sceptical Nick and Annji. Is it really the government who tries to protect its subjects, or is something much more sinister going on? Spiced with Black Mirror-style paranoia, Await Further Instructions is especially recommended to fans of old-school British sci-fi and horror like the Quatermass series or The Day of the Triffids. And anyone who loves a no holds barred gory finale!
