FRIDAY ROUNDUP: Papillon, Await Further Instructions trailer and Domnhall Gleeson reads The Little Stranger 3

Take the techno-paranoia of Black Mirror, add the intergalactic body horror of John Carpenter’s THE THING, adapt them into a VHS board game, and wrap it all up in a bitingly satirical Christmas-movie package, and what do you get? Await Further Instructions from British director Johnny Kevorkian and co-starring David Bradley of Game Of Thrones, Doctor Who, and Harry Potter fame.  It’ll be in theaters and on VOD October 5th from Dark Sky Films.

Film Synopsis
It’s Christmas Day and the Milgram family wake to find a mysterious black substance surrounding their house. Something monumental is clearly happening right outside their door, but what exactly – an industrial accident, a terrorist attack, nuclear war? Descending into terrified arguments, they turn on the television, desperate for any information. On screen a message glows ominously: ‘Stay Indoors and Await Further Instructions’. As the television exerts  an ever more sinister grip, their paranoia escalates into bloody carnage.

A powder keg of throat-grabbing intensity and mind-bending body horror, AWAIT FURTHER INSTRUCTIONS is an unmissable tour-de-force from rising star filmmaker Johnny Kevorkian  and the BAFTA-nominated producer of God’s  Own  Country.

Domhnall Gleeson reads The Little Stranger

Focus Features will release The Little Stranger on August 31, 2018
Story: THE LITTLE STRANGER tells the story of Dr. Faraday, the son of a housemaid, who has built a life of quiet respectability as a country doctor. During the long hot summer of 1948, he is called to a patient at Hundreds Hall, where his mother once worked. The Hall has been home to the Ayres family for more than two centuries. But it is now in decline and its inhabitants – mother, son and daughter – are haunted by something more ominous than a dying way of life. When he takes on his new patient, Faraday has no idea how closely, and how disturbingly, the family’s story is about to become entwined with his own.
Director: Lenny Abrahamson (“Room”)
Writer: Lucinda Coxon (“The Danish Girl”), based on the novel by Sarah Waters
Producers: Gail Egan, Ed Guiney, Andrea Calderwood
Cast: Domhnall Gleeson, Ruth Wilson, Will Poulter, and Charlotte Rampling
