Directed by Johnny Kevorkian and written by Gavin Williams, Await Further Instructions (starring David Bradley from Game of Thrones and Doctor Who, Sam Gittins, Neerja Naik, and Grant Masters) follows the Milgram family, who wake up on Christmas Day to discover that their home has been surrounded by an ominous black substance and the only "answers" they have as to what is going on is a message on their TV screen that reads "Stay Indoors and Await Further Instructions." Viewers can find out what those instructions may be when Dark Sky Films releases the new horror movie in theaters and on VOD beginning October 5th, and we have the trailer and poster for Daily Dead readers to check out ahead of its release.

"Take the techno-paranoia of Black Mirror, add the intergalactic body horror of John Carpenter's THE THING, adapt them into a VHS board game, and wrap it all up in a bitingly satirical Christmas-movie package, and what do you get? Await Further Instructions from British director Johnny Kevorkian and co-starring David Bradley of Game Of ThronesDoctor Who, and Harry Potter fame. It'll be in theaters and on VOD October 5th from Dark Sky Films.

Film Synopsis
It's Christmas Day and the Milgram family wake to find a mysterious black substance surrounding 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 the screen, a message glows ominously: 'Stay Indoors and Await Further Instructions'. As the television exerts an ever more sinister grip, their paranoia escalates into bloody carnage.

A powder keg of throat-grabbing intensity and mind-bending body horror, AWAIT FURTHER INSTRUCTIONS is an unmissable tour-de-force from rising star filmmaker Johnny Kevorkian and the BAFTA-nominated producer of God's Own Country."

    Tamika hails from North Beach, Maryland, a tiny town inches from the Chesapeake Bay.She knew she wanted to be an actor after reciting a soliloquy by Sojourner Truth in front of her entire fifth grade class. Since then, she's appeared in over 20 film and television projects. In addition to acting, Tamika is the Indie Spotlight manager for Daily Dead, where she brings readers news on independent horror projects every weekend.

    The first horror film Tamika watched was Child's Play. Being eight years old at the time, she remembers being so scared when Chucky came to life that she projectile vomited. It's tough for her to choose only one movie as her favorite horror film, so she picked two: Nosferatu and The Stepford Wives (1975).
