Coming soon from DREAD (the horror distribution arm of our parent company, Epic Pictures), is Automation, a genre-hybrid being described as RoboCop meets Office Space. Look for Garo Setian’s feature debut in select theaters on November 29th followed by a Blu-ray/VOD release on December 3rd.
Give the trailer a look-see at the top of the article and read the trailer below.
A workplace robot, AUTO, transforms into a killing machine when he discovers he will be replaced by a more efficient model.
Setian directed, produced, and edited Automation, and co-wrote alongside Rolfe Kanefsky and Matthew L. Schaffer. The film stars Elissa Dowling (We Are Still Here), Parry Shen (The Hatchet films), genre multi-hyphenate Graham Skipper (director and writer of Sequence Break, actor in Almost Human and Re-Animator the Musical), Sarah French, and Scream Queen Sadie Katz as office employees thrust into peril by a spiteful robot. Setian and Anahit Setian produced for their Hungry Monster Entertainment company, along with Mike Elliott, Greg Holstein, Joseph P. Genier, Rob Kerchner, Esther Goodstein, and Dan Bowen.
