Await Further Instructions, the New York Times Critic's Pick from Dark Sky Films, is now available on VOD and in select theaters. See the list of participating theaters below.
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.
In the film, 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.
Await Further Instructions also stars Sam Gittins, Neerja Naik, and Grant Masters.
