Staff Reporter | On 23, Oct 2019
Shudder has acquired all rights in its territories to seaside horror The Beach House.
The debut film from writer-director Jeffrey A. Brown, The Beach House just had its North American premiere as the opening night film at the Brooklyn Horror Film Festival. It stars Liana Liberato, Noah Le Gros, Jake Weber and Maryanne Nagel and had its world premiere earlier this month at the Strasbourg European Fantastic Film Festival and the Sitges Film Festival.
It was produced by Andrew D. Corkin (We Are What We Are, A Vigilante), Tyler Davidson (Take Shelter, The Signal), Sophia Lin (Take Shelter, Compliance).
Hoping to reignite their relationship, Emily (Liana Liberato, Light as a Feather) and Randall (Noah Le Gros, Depraved) arrive at their weekend getaway only to discover a peculiar older couple already staying there. They all agree to share the home and after an indulgent night of partying, wake up to a living nightmare of apocalyptic proportions.
“The Beach House is no ordinary vacation horror. Jeffrey and cast have crafted a mysterious, layered and increasingly eerie gem with shades of paranoid thriller and eco-terror. Shudder is thrilled to present this special seaside nightmare to our members,” says Emily Gotto, Shudder’s Director of Global Acquisitions & Co-Production.
“I could not be happier with The Beach House finding its home on Shudder, which has brought so many classics and contemporary groundbreakers to horror fans everywhere. I’ve always wanted our film to be discovered by this audience, and to come out alongside so many great films on Shudder’s platform is the ultimate endorsement. I can’t wait for the release!” adds writer/director Jeffrey A. Brown.
The film was fully financed by Davidson’s Low Spark Films. The deal was negotiated by Emily Gotto on behalf of Shudder, and by ICM and James Norrie of AMP International on behalf of the filmmakers. The Beach House will premiere on the subscription streaming service next year.
