SHUDDER is thrilled to announce that Bryan Bertino’s acclaimed new chiller THE DARK AND THE WICKED will be released exclusively on SHUDDER from 25 February 2021.
Acclaimed filmmaker Bryan Bertino (The Strangers, The Monster) returns to the home environment to mine more psychological terror and sophisticated scares in a film which goes straight to the heart of fractured family dynamics.
On a secluded farm, a man is bedridden and fighting through his final breaths while his wife (Julie Oliver-Touchstone, Preacher) slowly succumbs to overwhelming grief. Siblings Louise (Marin Ireland, Hell or High Water) and Michael (Michael Abbott Jr., The Death of Dick Long) return home to help, but it doesn’t take long for them to see that something’s wrong with mom—something more than her heavy sorrow. Gradually, they begin to suffer a darkness similar to their mother’s, marked by waking nightmares and a growing sense that an evil entity is taking over their family.
With startling use of sound and shattering lead performances, THE DARK AND THE WICKED is a trip home you’ll never forget from one of the genre’s leading modern practitioners.
