Technology has no boundaries in PERIPHERAL, which is celebrating its UK release with the unveiling of a new trailer and new image still from the film. Make sure you check out the trailer below and let us know what you think.
Bobbi Johnson (Hannah Arterton) is a young literary sensation facing her difficult second novel. Already dealing with a crazed stalker and her junkie ex-boyfriend, Bobbi is convinced by her publisher to use new smart editing software and finds herself going head-to-head with an artificial intelligence determined to write her book for her. As the machine manipulates her work to suit its own nefarious ends, Bobbi begins to realize that she is being controlled in ways far more sinister than she suspected. She may, in fact, be a pawn in a conspiracy of social mind control. Too far down the rabbit hole to turn back, Bobbi must keep writing, fighting her own addictions and hallucinations as she rushes to beat her deadline without selling her soul in the process.
This dark sci-fi horror stars Hannah Arterton (The Convent, Hide and Seek), Jenny Seagrove (A Woman of Substance, Another Mother’s Son), Tom Conti (“Rosemary’s Baby”, The Dark Knight Rises), Rosie Day (“Outlander”, All Roads Lead to Rome), and Elliot James Langridge (Killers Anonymous, Let’s Be Evil).
PERIPHERAL is the latest film by renowned visionary director Paul Hyett (best known for his make-up effects work on such films as The Descent, Doomsday, and Eden Lake).
The film is set to be digitally released in the UK courtesy of Blue Finch Films on August 3, 2020. The sinister and unsettling sci-fi horror fantasy will be available on iTunes, Amazon, Google, Sky, and Virgin.
