A slick apartment tower rises above the Thames, the beginnings of what will soon become the world’s biggest financial hub.
Dominating the landscape, it is simply called the HIGH-RISE… its address a mark of exclusivity.
Its newest resident is Robert Laing, an ambitious young doctor utterly seduced by the lifestyle and cutting-edge technology the high-rise has to offer.
Laing meets Wilder, a charismatic provocateur who introduces him to the seedy underbelly of the high-rise. The cracks in this apparently flawless society grow rapidly, and Laing is shocked at the depravity he sees. Life in the high-rise quickly descends into madness and violence, and Laing finds himself amongst the marauding hordes of bloodthirsty tenants who take over the building, floor by floor.
A disturbing vision from the director of Kill List, this action-packed thriller depicts society’s most chilling nightmares
