Paul Hyett’s Peripheral gets digital release Simon Fitzjohn July 3, 2020 Editor's Choice, Latest News and Videos 972 Technology has no boundaries in PERIPHERAL, the latest film by renowned visionary director Paul Hyett, 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. Here’s a synopsis: 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 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. This dark sci-fi horror also stars Jenny Seagrove, Tom Conti, Rosie Day and Elliot James Langridge And here’s a trailer for you: Hyett has a good track record behind the camera, with The Seasoning House, Howl and Heretiks (aka The Convent) on his resume, so this one will be worth checking out.
