[Trailer] Technology is Boundless in Techno-Terror Flick 'Peripheral' from 'Howl' Director Paul Hyett!
Technology is boundless...
...A trailer has been unleashed for Blue Finch Films and director Paul Hyett's (Howl) techno-terror flick, Peripheral, which contains all sorts of shades of Videodrome and other psychological horror films dealing with technology.
In Peripheral, written by Dan Schaffer (Doghouse):
"Bobbi Johnson 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 realise 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 and becoming a cog in a monstrous machine."
The film stars Hannah Arterton, Jenny Seagrove, Tom Conti, Rosie Day, and Elliot James Langridge.
Catch Peripheral when it releases digitally in the UK on August 3rd.
