Hex Studios Drops Epic First Trailer For Gothic Thriller 'Automata'
Hot on the heels of their black and white Noir The Black Gloves, director Lawrie Brewster and writer Sarah Daly are back with another slice of Gothic horror.
Automata, the fifth feature from the duo, is a lavish affair with a vibrant colour palette that harks back to the giallos of Argento and Bava. The film tells the story of an antiques expert sent to authenticate a three-hundred-year-old clockwork doll with a notorious history, the 'Infernal Princess'. He soon comes under its corrupting influence, and, along with his stepdaughter Rose, finds himself the target of dark forces beyond his control...
The film stars Hex Studios' regulars Jamie Scott Gordon (The Black Gloves, Bonejangles) and Alexandra Nicole Hulme (Lord Of Tears, The Black Gloves), alongside Erich Redman (The Danish Girl, Woman In Gold), Jonathan Hansler (The Devil's Business) and rising star Victoria Lucie (Dartmoor Killing).
According to director Lawrie Brewster, “Automata is a wild, Gothic thrill-ride inspired by the decadence of Ken Russell's Gothic, as well as the sensual expressionism of Argento's Suspiria and Bava's Black Sabbath. It's by far the most ambitious film we've produced, with a truly epic story that switches between the 1700s and the present day to reveal the truth behind the curse of the 'Infernal Princess'.”
Writer Sarah Daly alludes to the film's edgy themes; “The film explores how someone's idea of love can be perverted by experience, and how that corruption can echo through the ages. It goes to some very dark places, basically!”
The filmmakers have just launched a Kickstarter campaign offering pre-orders of the film, plush toys of their now infamous Owlman, credits, and other goodies to fund the post-production of the film.
