A trailer has been released for Lawrie Brewster’s Automata, a gorgeous-looking period gothic horror film from the team that brought us The Unkindness of Ravens and The Black Gloves. The movie will be making its world premiere at this year’s Glasgow Film Festival as part of the Arrow Video FrightFest line-up.
Director Lawrie Brewster states, “Automata is a wild, Gothic thrill-ride, and by far the most ambitious film we’ve produced. We’re honoured and excited to have the film’s international premiere here in Scotland, at the UK’s largest genre festival FrightFest, and as part of the prestigious Glasgow Film Festival.”
“The film tells the story of an antiques expert who is called upon to authenticate a three-hundred-year-old clockwork doll with a notorious history, the ‘Infernal Princess’. He soon comes under its corrupting influence, and, along with his stepdaughter, finds himself the target of dark forces beyond his control.“
Automata stars Erich Redman (Overlord), Jamie Scott Gordon (The Unkindness of Ravens, Bonejangles) and Alexandra Nicole Hulme (Lord Of Tears, The Black Gloves), alongside Jonathan Hansler (The Devil’s Business) and rising star Victoria Lucie (Dartmoor Killing).
