Movie Info

A young writer battles the intelligent software designed to help her write her new book and stumbles upon a conspiracy of social control. Peripheral is a contemporary sci-fi thriller about the war between art and commerce, the brain and the processor, flesh and silicon. Blending the claustrophobic intensity of Pi with the hallucinatory nature of Videodrome, Peripheral is a fiercely smart and original genre film with a critical eye on today's corporate controlled culture of entertainment and distraction. Starring Hannah Arterton (Walking On Sunshine), Elliot Langridge (Northern Soul) and directed by Paul Hyett (Howl, The Seasoning House).

Critic Reviews for Peripheral

All Critics (5) | Fresh (5)

  • Even when too much stuff is being thrown at the screen, it's hard not to admire Peripheral for trying.

    October 9, 2019 | Full Review…
  • A story that works well within the confines of its limited location, crafting an unnerving and claustrophobic atmosphere, Peripheral is a sci-fi body horror that will get under the skin.

    November 12, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Peripheral is a fascinating study of the impact technology can have on our lives and the power of ego when fame is the result of success.

    November 9, 2018 | Full Review…
  • The ink-stained results, messy and unnerving, are an introspective oddity and a dystopian satire of the individual's place in a closed political system. It's easily Hyett's finest film.

    November 9, 2018 | Full Review…
  • Although the plotting isn't as tight as it might have been throughout and there are times when the film relies too much on pre-established tropes, it's a smart piece of work.
