Lex and her boyfriend Dru visit her reclusive brother Leo’s top-floor apartment in the heart of London. The young couple discover Leo has created a digital virus intent on gaining absolute knowledge, which is evolving at an alarming rate. The already uncomfortable family reunion turns nasty when the virus traps the trio, and begins to spy on them using disturbing ‘biological’ drones. Despite outsider Dru’s growing resentment towards the siblings’ close bond, the three must stay united to have any chance of overcoming Leo’s godlike creation.
CTRL fuses several horror sub-genres including haunted house, zombies, sci-fi, body horror and psychopath, via one central concept: What if a digital virus was able to escape the computer and become airborne?
I'm keeping a watch on this upcoming horror film. I'm always pleased to see indie moviemakers doing their thing without "Big Brother" studios trying to pasteurize it into something for the masses instead of something for the creative thinkers.
