A new horror film from across the pond will hit our shores on Tax Day.
The Cellar–an Irish horror entry from writer/director Brendan Muldowney–will debut in theaters from RLJE Films and on Shudder April 15, as reported by Deadline. But first, the film will have its global coming-out party March 12 at SXSW in the festival’s Midnighters section.
The Cellar–starring Elisha Cuthbert (The Quiet, Captivity) and Eoin Macken (Nightflyers)–follows Keira Woods (Cuthbert), whose daughter mysteriously vanishes in the cellar of their new house in the country. Keira soon discovers there is “an ancient and powerful entity controlling their home that she will have to face–or risk losing her family’s souls forever,” according to the official synopsis.
The movie–a co-production between Ireland and Belgium that has its origins in Muldowney’s short film The Ten Steps–was shot on location in Roscommon, Ireland.
Shudder general manager Craig Engler called The Cellar “a riveting story that will appeal to both horror lovers and broader audiences alike. Brendan and this talented team have crafted a dark and haunting tale.”
