A host of familiar faces from the British genre ‘new wave’ movement litter the credits of this psycho-magical thriller from writer-director Gareth Tunley, including the likes of Alice Lowe, Dan Skinner and Paul Kay, with Tunley’s colleague Ben Wheatley producing.

Tom Meeten stars as a homicide detective called to London and shown around a murder scene, where evidence suggests the victims kept moving, despite having taken bullets to the chest and head. With the help of an old colleague, Chris decides to go undercover as a patient to investigate a suspect’s psychotherapist, but soon the lines between fantasy and reality begin to blur and Chris begins to question his own identity.

A lo-fi gem that wrongfoots its audience at every turn, director Gareth Tunley and producer Jack Guttman will be joining us for a live onstage Q&A after the screening.
