From Strike Media comes an all-new thriller that is set to release next month (March, 2022) in UK cinemas, as well as on digital download and Blu-ray. 

Broadcast Signal Intrusion has a very eerie, uncomfortable feeling to it; which is what we all want in a horror/thriller feature. 

The film held its World Premiere at SXSW, and has played at a number of international genre festivals, such as Fantasia, Sitges, FrightFest, Abertoir and Celluloid Screams. 

Jacob Gentry, the man behind films such as Synchronicity, directs the movie, and stars Harry Shum Jr. (Crazy Rich Asians, Glee), Kelley Mack (Shot In The Dark, The Walking Dead) and Chris Sullivan (This Is Us, Agnes).

Broadcast Signal Intrusion is set in the late 1990s, and follows a video archivist who discovers a collection of unnerving pirate broadcasts and becomes obsessed with finding out the truth behind them, which could lead him down a very sinister path. 

Broadcast Signal Intrusion is an immersive, mind-bending, elevated-genre film,” says Sales and Acquisitions Director Peter Thompson. “We cannot wait for UK and Irish audiences to go down the retro tech-thriller rabbit hole. For fans of Censor and Archive 81, this should be next on your watch-list!” 

The movie was produced by Greg Newman, who also worked on The Girl On The Third Floor and Stake Land, and was co-written by Phil Drinkwater and Tim Woodall. 

The upcoming film is based on a short that was made in 2016, also titled Broadcast Signal Intrusion

The feature’s trailer definitely backs up Thompson’s words, as it showcases a mental game that the movie plays with its viewers; a main character who never gives up has been done before, yes, but Broadcast Signal Intrusion has something lurking under the surface... 

Thrillers have the ability to instil fear in us that we may not have been aware of; Broadcast Signal Intrusion appears to be the perfect film to turn the lights off and watch, especially as new movies release all the time, and you wouldn’t want to miss this... 

Broadcast Signal Intrusion comes to UK cinemas on March 25th, 2022, and will be available on digital and Blu-ray on March 28th, 2022.
