Supernatural social media satire Followers coming to Blu-Ray & Digital

Screenbound Pictures have announced the Blu-ray and Digital release of Followers on 18 July 2022.

Jonty, a failing influencer with an ambition to reach over a million followers, will stop at nothing to become famous. A new start at University brings with it hopes of a resurgence in his popularity when a demonic presence appears in his student house. Jonty decides to stream his and his housemates experiences with this supernatural entity to gain the fame and fortune he’s most been craving. But at what cost?

With a World Premiere at Frightfest 2021 and theatrical screenings at Vue and Showcase cinemas earlier this year, FOLLOWERS will debut on Blu-ray & digital platforms this 18th July 2022 courtesy of Screenbound Pictures, with the physical release packed full of fun extras.

An exciting British independent production from Parkhouse Pictures, producers of the BAFTA Scotland nominated Anna and the Apocalypse, this darkly comic satire on today’s influencer generation marks a ‘chilling debut’ (Film Stories) from late director Marcus Harben, who very sadly passed away before the film was released. Combining horror with humour in the tradition of Get Out and Black Mirror, Followers puts a fresh new spin on found-footage movies as what starts as an hilariously bad YouTube video series develops into a warning to the world about a shocking new strain of supernatural serial killer.

Starring a vibrant young cast on the rise Harry Jarvis (Netflix’s The Knight Before Christmas, High Strung Free Dance), Loreece Harrison (Black Mirror, upcoming role in Starz series Pennyworth), Erin Austen (The Kindred, The Royals), and Daniel Cahill (Anna and the Apocalypse, Outpost: Rise of the Spetsnaz) as well as featuring Orion Lee (First Cow, Pixar’s Turning Red), stalwart of the British film and TV industry Nina Wadia (upcoming Netflix series The Sandman, BBC series The Outlaws) and one of the UK’s biggest social media influencers, YouTuber and actress Tanya Burr (Sky’s Twist, upcoming Venice at Dawn).

Followers will be available on Blu-ray & to rent and buy on digital platforms from 18th July.
