Let’s be honest. Politics and family gatherings never mixed. But what happens when you add in creepy black goo, cryptic government warnings, and general paranoia? Await Further Instructions explores these tense interactions, according to the newly released trailer.

“… pure midnight madness …”

The newest film from director Johnny Kevorkian (The Disappeared) promises a mixture of sci-fi, social commentary, and body horror that our own Luke Rodriguez called “pure midnight madness.” The film also features veteran actor David Bradley, who fans may recognize from Hot Fuzz and the Harry Potter series, alongside British actors Sam Gittins and Neerja Naik.

Await Further Instructions comes to theaters and VOD on October 5, 2018.

Plot 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.
