LET'S BE EVIL, a psychological sci-fi thriller set in Los Angeles is released on DVD 30th January 2017 courtesy of Vertigo Releasing & Precision Pictures and Britflicks has 3 copies to give away.
Synopsis: Children’s skulls are thin. Despite the controversy over mobile phone radiation, step into the near future and the full dangers are still not yet disclosed. Irrespective, in order to avoid slippage down the international educational league tables, the government declares its intention to equip children with Augmented Reality Glasses. Trials suggest that being permanently ‘plugged in’ can significantly enhance IQ. The potential benefits appear to be enormous, but the electro-magnetism adjacent to a child’s brain starts to cause unusual effects. Our audience is at first amused and delighted, and, in a breathtaking denouement, ultimately shocked, disturbed and horrified.

Synopsis: Directed by Oliver Frampton, THE FORGOTTEN opens with a black screen and a terrifying 999 phone call by a desperate, scared woman who’s under attack. When the line goes dead… we skipforwar din time and join 14 year old TOMMY and his unstable father MARK. Having been evicted, they’re forced to squat in a derelict flat in an abandoned ‘ghost town’ of a council estate in South London. But no sooner has Tommy settled in, he starts to realise the estate might not be as empty as it appears.
While he struggles to reconnect with his deteriorating father, and glean where his absent mum might have gone, introverted Tommy makes an unlikely new friend in ballsy, street-smart CARMEN. Together they start to unravel the chilling truth behind the strange noises coming through Tommy's bedroom wall from the supposedly empty flat next door. And the bizarre things that Tommy’s been seeing and experiencing since his arrival; panicked knockings through the wall, strange figures, muted voices, faces through keyholes.
Eventually they break in and find the next-door flat empty. But the hauntings only escalate and when Mark is injured and taken into hospital, Tommy finds himself alone on the estate and realises he’s in way over his head. What unravels is a story that links back to a horrific event buried in the estate’s history. But what does the malign force want? The truth is more terrifying than Tommy and Carmen could possibly imagine…
