This British sci-fi thriller is like the violent offspring of "Black Mirror."
An important subject doesn't necessarily make for a thrilling satire/social critique and Kevorkian and Williams simply aren't outlandish enough to land their half-baked ideas about television's dominating influence.
Toxic patriarchy and all-access paranoia flourish in "Await Further Instructions," Johnny Kevorkian's genuinely upsetting, supremely British horror-sci-fi hybrid.
Genre fans will enjoy the escalating mayhem and some moments of inventive, audacious grisliness.
In its final stretch, Await Further Instructions reveals itself as a hollow, hamfisted polemic, one with all the profundity of a bumper sticker.
There's armrest-clutching brilliance in the way this sweatily tense low-budget British horror lays out a family Christmas from hell, and then cranks it up into something truly gruesome.
Johnny Kevorkian has created a clever and brutal film which melds sci-fi with horror to great effect.
A horror film in the tradition of Night of the Living Dead, gathering a group of people in a house with an unexplained threat outside and observing as fear gives way to anger and violence. It's the Bottle Episode from Hell.
Await Further Instructions deliberately resists pitting the characters' beliefs against each other in favour of keeping the conflict shallow and straightforward...This is particularly true once the body count begins to rise
Gavin Williams' script has managed to pre-empt so much of the division and bias that we see in today's society and skilfully focuses it back on the root problem: hereditary abuse and toxic masculinity.
A single situation story that explores the horrors of family, conformity and our relationship with technology; go in fresh and enjoy the journey of Await Further Instructions.
There's bleak realism behind the comedy, Cruttenden's twitchy performance suggesting that power games in this household are nothing new. The final scenes, anarchic and glorious, will not easily be forgotten.
