Automata – UK/United Arab Emirates, 2018

Automata is a 2018 British/United Arab Emirates horror film directed by Lawrie Brewster (For We Are Many; The Unkindness of Ravens; Lord of Tears) from a screenplay by Sarah Daly (The Black Gloves; Kids vs Monsters). It stars Jamie Scott Gordon, Alexandra Nicole Hulme, and Erich Redman.

An antiques expert is 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…

Director Lawrie Brewster has commented: “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’.”

A release in December 2018 is planned. In order to fully fund post-production, Hex Studios have a Kickstarter campaign offering pre-orders of the film, an Owlman plush toy, plus a new book about their monsters:
