This is the rest stop bathroom your parents warned you about.

Inspired by the works of H.P. Lovecraft, the film–heading to Shudder Aug. 18–is directed by Rebekah McKendry (Tales of Halloween) from a screenplay by Todd Rigney, Joshua Hull and David Ian McKendry.
In Glorious, Ryan Kwanten plays a young men named Wes who is “spiraling out of control after a bad breakup,” according to the synopsis. And things get a lot worse when he finds himself “locked in a rest stop bathroom with a mysterious figure (J.K. Simmons) speaking to him from an adjacent stall.”
As he tries to escape, he realizes he is “an unwilling player in a situation bigger and more terrible than he could have imagined.”
McKendry said she had been looking for a project that would “let me show my preferred artistic style–that would let me be sardonic, transgressive and weird. And Glorious really gets weird.”
