From the producer of GET OUT and WHIPLASH, Melbourne's own Leigh Whannell returns home to craft an inventive next-level thriller set in a frighteningly real near-future.
Technology controls nearly every aspect of our daily lives. When Grey (Logan Marshall-Green) - a self-identified technophobe - has his world turned upside down by a random accident, his only hope for returning to a 'normal' life is through a groundbreaking experiment involving a microchip being implanted into his body. Sworn to keep this new medical advancement a secret, Grey struggles to keep his pact when he discovers that the circumstances that changed his life may not have been random.
Shot in Melbourne but set in a near future America, UPGRADE remixes such cinema classics as Paul Verhoeven's Robocop and Spike Jonze's Her into a thrilling, pulpy delight.
"Upgrade gracefully combines the sci-fi noir of BLADE RUNNER with a slapstick buddy comedy... a more action-heavy version of a Cronenberg body-horror film... you won’t be able to forget this one anytime soon. 4 Stars!" FLICKERING MYTH
"HER as a gory action movie – and it’s terrific... strikingly invigorated... visually engulfing" SLASH FILM
