Artificial Intelligence Turns Sinister in This Crazy First Trailer For the Sci-Fi Thriller PERIPHERAL
The first crazy trailer has been released for a new artificial intelligence sci-fi horror thriller called Peripheral. The film comes from director Paul Hyett, who directed The Seasoning House, Howl and Heretiks.
The story centers around a writer who installs an artificial intelligence editing software in her home to help her finish a novel, but as you’ll see, things take a dark and sinister turn when the AI starts to manipulate her and control her. Here’s the synopsis:
Bobbi Johnson is a young literary sensation facing her difficult second novel. Already dealing with a crazed stalker and her junkie ex-boyfriend, Bobbi is convinced by her publisher to use new smart editing software and finds herself going head-to-head with an artificial intelligence determined to write her book for her. As the machine manipulates her work to suit its own nefarious ends, Bobbi begins to realize that she is being controlled in ways far more sinister than she suspected. She may, in fact, be a pawn in a conspiracy of social mind control. Too far down the rabbit hole to turn back, Bobbi must keep writing, fighting her own addictions and hallucinations as she rushes to beat her deadline without selling her soul in the process and becoming a cog in a monstrous machine.
There’s no release date yet for the film, but it’s a movie that I’d like to eventually see when the opportunity presents itself.
