A science fiction horror series about social media, big tech, and influencer culture.

It’s The Social Network meets Hellraiser. When the world’s biggest influencer posts something irredeemably horrific online, the world changes in an instant.

Both are on an inevitable collision course with the picturesque Canadian resort town of Braeriach. Massive storm clouds are brewing. The animals are running. Something else is on its way.

Drawing on elements of psychological drama and horror, Mountainhead is a character driven story with a sinister undercurrent of the monstrous and distinctive visuals that add an uneasy atmosphere to the narrative.”
