David Cronenberg–the filmmaker behind such genre classics as Scanners, Videodrome and The Fly–will step in front of the camera for the next season of the horror anthology Slasher.
The fourth season of Slasher–which has already aired on Netflix and Chiller–will now stream on Shudder with an eight-episode run, as reported by Deadline.
The upcoming season–officially titled Slasher: Flesh & Blood–follows a “wealthy, but dysfunctional, family that is gathering for a reunion on a secluded island,” according to the official synopsis. “Their old wounds and competitive rivalries flare up when the family realizes a masked killer is on the island, intent on cruelly picking them off one by one.” No way to run a reunion.
Cronenberg–whose acting credits include a role in Jason X–will star with returning cast members Paula Brancati, Jefferson Brown, Patrice Goodman, Sabrina Grdevich and Christopher Jacot and newcomers Rachael Crawford (Heartland), Jeananne Goosen (The Walking Dead), Sydney Meyer (Departure) and Alex Ozerov (The Americans).
Slasher–created by executive producer Aaron Martin–is led by showrunner Ian Carpenter and helmed by director Adam MacDonald.
Shudder general manager Craig Engler called Slasher “clever, bloody, scary and fun”, and said that adding Cronenberg to the mix will “take this new installment of the series to the next level.”
