Movie Info

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 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

    Oct 5, 2018 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Toxic patriarchy and all-access paranoia flourish in "Await Further Instructions," Johnny Kevorkian's genuinely upsetting, supremely British horror-sci-fi hybrid.

    Oct 4, 2018 | Full Review…
  • Despite its amalgam of styles and influences, Await Further Instructions transcends mere pastiche, adding a unique wrinkle to otherwise familiar terrain.

    Jul 15, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • sends out an agreeably grisly, condemnatory and satisfactory signal
