by Thomas Tuna

Who knew a simple trip to the bathroom could turn out this bad?

The new horror flick Glorious–which is said to be “quietly nearing completion”–has announced its two stars, according to a report on Deadline.

Ryan Kwanten (HBO’s True Blood) and J.K. Simmons (an Oscar winner for Whiplash and well-known to genre fans as J.J. Jameson from the Spider-Man universe) are headlining the supernatural horror film. AMP International started sales talks on the project during the virtual EFM.

Glorious–from director Rebekah McKendry (Tales of Halloween) and screenwriters Todd Rigney, Joshua Hull and David Ian McKendry–follows a young man (Kwanten) who is “spiraling out of control after a bad breakup,” according to the official synopsis.

His situation only get worse when he finds himself locked inside a rest stop bathroom “with a mysterious figure (Simmons) speaking to him from an adjacent stall. As he tries to escape, he realizes he’s an unwilling player in a situation bugger than he could have imagined.”

Director McKendry said Glorious “speaks to my love of cosmic horror, gore, absurdist humor, philosophy and the type of transgressive movies that leave you thinking, ‘I can’t believe I just saw that’.” Echoing those sentiments, James Norrie of AMP called the film “so deliciously bonkers that people are going to be talking about it for years.”
