Brandon Christensen’s Superhost will head to Shudder this September.
The film follows travel vloggers Teddy (Osric Chau, Supernatural) and Claire (Sara Canning, Nancy Drew), who share their experiences in and around vacation homes with their subscribers while maintaining a moderate level of internet fame. When their follower count starts to dwindle, they pivot to creating viral content around their most recent host, Rebecca (Gracie Gillam, Z Nation). With all eyes turned towards their “superhost,” Rebecca, they slowly start to realise something isn’t right and as they investigate further, they unlock a horrifying truth.
Christensen, who previously directed Z and Still/Born, writes and directs, as well as producing alongside Chau and Kurtis David Harder (Spiral). Chris Scordo, Darren Sivertsen, Ty Sivertsen, Jon Robinson and Rob Preston serve as executive producers. In front of the camera, the cast is also joined by Barbara Crampton (Jakob’s Wife).
“Led by Gracie Gillam’s unshackled and wildly fun performance, Superhost is an unexpected, darkly humorous new terror from Brandon Christensen,” said Craig Engler, general manager of Shudder. “Following Still/Born and Z, we’re thrilled Brandon remains in the Shudder family, and are eagerly anticipating creeping out our members’ long weekends.”
Christensen adds: “I’m incredibly excited for horror fans to check out my newest film Superhost on Shudder. Superhost will stay with you long after the credits and have you rethink staying in a complete stranger’s house.”
The film will be released by Shudder on 2nd September in the UK, Ireland, North America, Australia and New Zealand.
