From director Simeon Halligan (White Settlers, Splintered) and based on the cult novel by Stephen McGeagh, HABIT is a blood-drenched and intense claustrophobic film set in the underbelly of Manchester starring Jessica Barden from the hit Netflix show The End of the F***ing World and Showtime’s horror drama series Penny Dreadful.
HABIT centres around Michael (Elliot James Langridge - Northern Soul) who as a young boy, along with his sister, witnessed 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 (Jessica Barden), an introduction to her Uncle Ian (William Ash - The Tunnel) 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.
After receiving its World Premiere at Manchester’s GRIMMFEST 2017 and winning Best Feature and Best Screenplay at the New York City Horror Film Festival the same year, this highly anticipated horror is available for digital download and DVD now.
Sally Carman (Shameless, Coronation Street), Joanne Mitchell (Attack of the Adult Babies, Emmerdale), Roxanne Pallett (Wrong Turn 6, Emmerdale) and Louis Emerick (Layer Cake, Brookside, Coronation Street) also star.
