Neerja Naik plays Annji, a trainee paramedic who is in for the fight of her life in a darkly monstrous tale of tyranny and television.
Sam Gittens plays Nick, who brings his girlfriend Annji into the family house from hell, where the television exerts a sinister grip, leading to paranoia and bloody carnage.
Director Johnny Kevorkian said today: "I'm so pleased to be working with the super talented Sam Gittins and Neerja Naik, who are bringing such intensity to every scene. We're half way through the shoot and things will only get more extreme from here. I can't wait to push their characters even further as the spectacular reality of their confinement is finally revealed!"
Currently shooting at GSP Studios in York, the story revolves around the Milgram family, who have gathered to celebrate Christmas, only to find a mysterious black substance has surrounded their house. Something monumental is clearly happening right outside their door, but what exactly - an industrial accident, a terrorist attack, nuclear war? Descending into terrified arguments, they turn on the television, desperate for any information. On screen a message glows ominously: 'Stay Indoors and Await Further Instructions”….
