Drink The Black Milk

After an accidental promotion to corporate life, a painfully average fast food worker has to save the world from destruction at the hands of a malevolent marketing department.

A “Shane Warbrooke” FILM
WRITTEN BY Shane Warbrooke

A satirical horror comedy
ALEX MCATEN hates his job at Byron Burger. Every day is his last day there. The last day he’s going to spend arguing with his overpaid / underqualified manager MICHAEL WILLIAMS. Alex is going to get a degree, or a better job, or he’ll just burn the place down and walk away.

Michael pulls Alex away from his soul destroying routine to give him a letter from their corporate office, YALDA-BAOTH LTD. A grin breaks out across Alex’s face as he realises he’s been promoted to Corporate. He flips off Michael and gleefully leaves the restaurant to pursue his new life.
Alex starts training for his new role as a marketing assistant under the tutelage of the bizarre PROFESSOR ALBRECHT DANIELS, self proclaimed expert in genetic manipulation and bio engineering. Alex and his fellow inductees SARA GRANT and WILL ROBERTSON are introduced to the HEADS OF MARKETING - huge psychic brains grown by Professor Daniels to market products directly to the subconcious - and trained to care for them. As the company begins to ramp up for a massive marketing push of their new fast food menu item THE BLACK MILK, Alex starts to have horrific nightmares about disturbingly misshapen creatures hunting him. He awakens one night to see one of these horrific creatures at his window.
These creatures start to infect Alex’s homelife, terrifying him more and more as the release of the black milk approaches. Work offers no refuge as the heads of Marketing become more and more active, causing Alex’s workmates to start losing their minds, babbling incoherently, performing bizarre rituals and harming themselves and each other.
Alex learns the true nature of the Heads of Marketing, the real reason the misshapen creatures are after him, and just why YALDA-BAOTH’s board of directors are all bald old men.
