New Claustrophobic Horror Flick, CTRL, Promises to Shock!!

CTRL Petri LogoThe upcoming horror film, CTRL, sounds like a promising mix of many various horror sub-genres. CTRL is written and directed by Harry Lindley and is about a computer virus which locks three people in an apartment. This is the first feature film from Wanderland Productions and Harry Lindley.
 Check out the plot crunch:

Lex and her boyfriend Dru visit her reclusive brother Leo’s top-floor apartment in the heart of London. The young couple discover Leo has created a digital virus intent on gaining absolute knowledge, which is evolving at an alarming rate. The already uncomfortable family reunion turns nasty when the virus traps the trio, and begins to spy on them using disturbing ‘biological’ drones. Despite outsider Dru’s growing resentment towards the siblings’ close bond, the three must stay united to have any chance of overcoming Leo’s godlike creation.

Check out the concept trailer:

CTRL fuses several horror sub-genres including haunted house, zombies, sci-fi, body horror, and psychopath, via one central concept: What if a digital virus was able to escape the computer and become airborne? Sounds like an interesting concept. There’s also an interesting element in the film that are called “Biological Drones.” As director Lindley describes them:

CTRL NINE LAWS still 1

We don’t want to give too much away at this stage, but think we’ve come up with something truly shocking and new here. A digital virus escapes the confines of it’s computer, and produces a range of biological abominations, which torment its trapped victims over the course of a week. If you think this sounds crazy, you’re right, but you only have to look at 3D printing, where there are already blueprints out there to make your own guns, to realise that the technology is just around the corner. In our story, we put this power into the hands of an Artificial Intelligence, intent on surviving at all costs.

Nice!! Sounds like something David Cronenberg himself might be proud of. To learn more about CTRL, check out their official website, their Kickstarter page, and you can follow them on Twitter. Horror fans are always complaining that there isn’t anything new in the genre, so let’s support CTRL … this has “fresh” written all over it.

Stay Bloody!!!
