In Wales, no one can hear you scream.
Maple Dragon and Devilworks have today announced the Cannes World Market Premiere of the horror-comedy Canaries, and they’ve provided us with your very first look!
The sci-fi horror comedy stars Robert Pugh (Game Of Thrones, Master & Commander), Hannah Daniel (Hinterland), Kai Owen (Torchwood) and Richard Mylan (Coupling, Don’t Knock Twice) and will be shown to buyers in Cannes for the first time.
Canaries, the feature directorial debut of writer/director Peter Stray, features thrilling and captivating special-FX from Oscar Award-Winners, Milk VFX, who took home the award for Best VFX for Ex Machina…
“In the style of Shaun Of The Dead, The Lost Boys and Attack the Block, CANARIES is a funny, dark and action packed sci-fi horror comedy that pits a group of drunken friends on New Years Eve in a Welsh valley against an invasion task force of creepy time-traveling aliens. A kick-ass M.O.D agent, an insecure radio DJ and a kung fu master who owns the local B&B learn their new years resolution this year is simple: STAY ALIVE.”

Producers include Craig Russell, Alexandra London-Thompson and Dominique Dauwe.
