Parkhouse Pictures have released a new UK trailer for upcoming social media comedy-horror Followers.
Jonty, a failing influencer with an ambition to reach over a million followers, will stop at nothing to become famous. A new start at University brings with it hopes of a resurgence in his popularity when a demonic presence appears in his student house. Jonty decides to stream his and his housemates experiences with this supernatural entity to gain the fame and fortune he’s most been craving. But at what cost?
The film is another independent production from Parkhouse Pictures, producers of the BAFTA Scotland nominated Anna and the Apocalypse. A darkly comic satire on today’s influencer generation, Followers combines horror with humour in the tradition of Get Out and Black Mirror putting a fresh new spin on found-footage movies. What starts as an hilariously bad YouTube video series develops into a warning to the world about a shocking new strain of supernatural serial killer.
Written and directed by Marcus Harben, the film stars a young cast of up-and-comers including Harry Jarvis (Netflix’s The Knight Before Christmas), Loreece Harrison (Misbehaviour, Black Mirror), Erin Austen (The Kindred, The Royals), and Daniel Cahill (Anna and the Apocalypse) as well as featuring Orion Lee (First Cow, Pixar’s Turning Red), stalwart of the British film and TV industry Nina Wadia (Eastenders, Strictly Come Dancing 2021 and the upcoming Netflix series The Sandman) and one of the UK’s biggest social media influencers, YouTuber and actress Tanya Burr (Sky’s Twist, Venice at Dawn).
Followers lands in the UK exclusively in cinemas on March 18th 2022.
