Londoner Adam Jones is stuck in a dead end job; lives alone with his cat and spends his free time obsessing over the latest conspiracy theories on the Internet...
Erskine and McCullough’s debut feature is a deft thriller that cleverly weaves together a host of urban myths, from kidney-stealing and alien abduction, to manipulative drug corporations; this is a paranoiac’s wonderland. Reminiscent of Jacob’s Ladder and with shades of Donnie Darko, the plot winds its way, Rubik’s cube-like, to a satisfyingly twisted climax.
At times sinister, surprising and striking, and with an endearingly hapless hero, EMR is a refreshingly British take on the thriller that will make you think twice the next time you knock back a couple of aspirin.
