FIRST LOOK at HABIT the new Manchester UK set horror from WHITE SETTLERS (THE BLOODLANDS) director Simeon Halligan.
WHITE SETTLERS (Polly McIntosh, The Walking Dead) was a hit with genre fans back in 2015 when it played festivals like SITGES, FRIGHTFEST and SCREAMFEST LA and subsequently released on Netﬂix in the UK and the US.
