The British science fiction film Await Further Instructions was released on October 5, 2018. I am hard-pressed on whether to classify this as an apocalyptic sci fi movie or as a dark Christmas movie. As for the message of the movie, which this one seems to have, I would say that it is “we are controlled by the media”.
A dysfunctional family gets together for Christmas, but the next morning they find a message on their TV which says: Stay inside your houses. Await Further Instructions. It is at this point that Nick (Sam Gittins) and his girlfriend Annji (Neerja Naik) must deal with his family’s inner fears and prejudices. As far as the acting went, it was tolerable. The story line wasn’t totally original, but there were some good emotional scenes. The CGI was also good.
There was no foul language and the violence was there but it wasn’t particularly bloody. If you are a fan of dark science fiction, there you will enjoy this movie. The main star of the movie wasn’t any of the actors, it was the television screen. I give this 3 stars out of 5.
