This month's Off The Record features a special preview screening of upcoming psychological thriller Beacon 77, followed by a Q & A with the film’s director and star - Brad Watson and Jonathan Rhodes.

Two young women arrive at a curious penthouse apartment, led by one's crush on her tutor. However, her love interest doesn't live alone. He's part of a trio of computer hackers about to embark on the ultimate job on the world's most mysterious mainframe. Whilst doing so, they unlock more than they bargain for with supernatural and ultimately fatal results. Can this seemingly insignificant chain of events, which have thrown this group together, be construed as fate? Can the beacon provide a signal of hope or is it a web of manipulation, paranoia and ultimately... murder?

Hear the filmmakers discuss the challenges involved in making an independent British feature and taking it to market, as we ask... "Are genre films the future of British independent filmmaking?"

The film will be in UK cinemas later this year.

“Stand-out performances… an intricate, well thought through script… an absorbing example of the best that British genre cinema has to offer.” Official Review – Leeds International Film Festival
