New UK Trailer for 'Broadcast Signal Intrusion' Lo-Fi Mystery Thriller
"Say someone did hide a message in those tapes - do you really want to be the guy to figure out what that means?" Lightbulb Film in the UK has revealed another full UK trailer for their release of the indie mystery horror-thriller Broadcast Signal Intrusion, made by filmmaker Jacob Gentry. This originally premiered at the 2021 SXSW Film Festival and opened last fall in the US (it's out now to watch in the US only if you to check it out). The film lands in UK cinemas this March. In the late 90s, a video archivist unearths a series of sinister pirate broadcasts that took over antenna TV signals, and he becomes obsessed with uncovering the conspiracy behind them, while wondering if any of this might connect to the disappearance of his wife years ago. Harry Shum Jr. stars as James, with an indie cast including Chris Sullivan, Kelley Mack, Steve Pringle, and Justin Welborn. I caught this at SXSW last year and enjoyed it, there's some intriguing style and mystery within. This trailer reveals more than the US one, but not everything. Still needs deciphering.
Here's the full UK trailer (+ UK poster) for Jacob Gentry's Broadcast Signal Intrusion, from YouTube:
Set during 1999, James is archiving video tapes for a Chicago television station when he discovers that one contains a broadcast signal intrusion (BSI) where a disguised person acts strangely. The video is difficult to hear clearly, but this intrigues James. He chooses to investigate reports of a similar BSI that occurred during an episode of a sci-fi TV show, only to discover that the FCC took all of the station's copies. As he continues to search, James uncovers a possible conspiracy that it linked to the disappearance of several women, including his wife Hannah. Broadcast Signal Intrusion is directed by American filmmaker Jacob Gentry, of the films Last Goodbye, The Signal, and Synchronicity previously. The screenplay is written by Phil Drinkwater and Tim Woodall. This initially premiered at the 2021 SXSW Film Festival earlier this year. Dark Sky will debut Broadcast Signal Intrusion in select US theaters + on VOD on October 22nd, 2021 - it's already out now to watch. Strike Medie will release the film in UK cinemas starting March 25th, 2022.
