The UK will pick up the HABIT on 29th June
White Settlers and Splintered director Simeon Halligan brings us another tale of terror when HABIT is released in UK cinemas 29th June.
Based on Stephen McGreagh’s novel and set on the rain-soaked streets of Manchester, the film stars Jessica Barden fresh from the success of Netflix’s The End of the F***ing World, Elliot James Langridge (Northern Soul), William Ash (The Tunnel), Sally Carman (Shameless), Joanne Mitchell (Attack of the Adult Babies) and Roxanne Pallett (Wrong Turn 6).
The film centres on Michael (Langridge) who as a young boy, along with his sister, witnesses the suicide of his mother. Now an adult and trying to find his place in the world, Michael divides his time between the job centre and the pub. A chance meeting with Lee (Barden), an introduction to her Uncle Ian (Ash) and a heavy night on the streets of Manchester, lead to a job working the door at Cloud 9, a seedy massage parlour. After witnessing the violent death of one of the punters, Michael starts having increasingly blood soaked nightmares. Are they flashbacks or fantasies? Little by little, he finds himself being sucked into a dangerous twilight world that he doesn’t understand – but which he finds irresistibly attractive. Addictive even.
Described as shocking, visceral and twisted, HABIT has already won awards for Best Screenplay and Best Feature at The New York Horror Film Festival and will hit our screens 29th June.
