Automation is an indie sci-fi thriller from director Garo Setian. The film is prescient as it covers robot efficiency, in the workplace and the replacement of human staff. Set to have its World Premiere on August 10th, this film will take part in this year's Hollywood Horrorfest. This event has already started with showings of: The Funeral, several horror shorts and Dale Fabrigar's underwater horror fare D-Railed. Automation will be part of this film festival's second and final night. Starring Elissa Dowling (Rootwood), Sadie Katz (Bus Party to Hell), Parry Shen, Graham Skipper, and Sarah French, the film was written by director Setian and Rolfe Kanefsky (The Black Room). Now, several stills are available for the film, ahead of this title' premiere.

This automaton discovers a plan, by its boss, to replace itself and many of the workers he has been assigned to surveil.
