VIVARIUM will have its UK premiere at the BFI London Film Festival this October. The film is a brilliantly original sci-fi mystery, starring The Social Network's Jesse Eisenberg and Green Room's Imogen Poots, from the producers of cult hits Mandy and The Void.
Poots and Eisenberg are a young couple, Gemma and Tom, looking for a starter home. They meet up with a strange estate agent, Martin, who tells them about a new development called Yonder. Gemma and Tom decide to take a look. The houses in Yonder are identical, suburban homes. The place is silent, empty and otherworldly. Martin shows the couple around house number nine and then vanishes. Gemma and Tom attempt to leave Yonder, but become lost. Every route returns them back to number nine.
All attempts to leave end in failure and frustration. Then one morning the couple find a tiny infant at the house with instructions: 'raise the child and be released.'
VIVARIUM will be released in cinemas in the UK and Ireland in early 2020.
