Andy Mitton’s The Harbinger Is Getting a US Release!

If you followed our summer festival coverage here at Horror Obsessive, you’re probably keeping an eye out for Andy Mitton’s excellent film The Harbinger (not to be confused with Will Klipstine’s far inferior movie of the same name). Sean Parker and I reviewed it for two different festivals, and we both really enjoyed it. We’ve been anxiously awaiting the day when the rest of you will get the chance to see this movie, and now, we finally know when that’s going to be. The Harbinger is coming to theaters and VOD on December 1, and if you like smart, creepy horror that has something to say, you’re not going to want to miss this one.

The film is set during the heart of the COVID-19 pandemic, and it’s about two women named Monique and Mavis. They’re old friends who haven’t seen each other in a while, but they reconnect after Mavis begins having terrifying nightmares. Monique agrees to spend some time at Mavis’s apartment to help her deal with her troubles, but soon enough, the entity that’s haunting Mavis begins to haunt her as well.

The Harbinger is a fantastic film, but I’m not going to rehash all the reasons why Sean and I loved it so much. If you want to know more, you can check out our reviews. However, I will say one thing about this movie: the fact that Sean and I both enjoyed it tells you just how good it really is.

See, we have very different cinematic tastes, so we often find ourselves disagreeing on new releases (as well as a few old ones!). There’s even a bit of a running joke between us that if he likes a film, I probably won’t, and vice versa. So the fact that both of us gave The Harbinger a thumbs up is significant. It means the movie is really good and can appeal to a wide variety of tastes, so do yourself a favor and give it a watch when it comes out. You won’t regret it.
