College life can be scary.
Master–a new genre film that recently premiered at the Sundance Film Festival–will land in theaters and on Amazon Prime Video March 18, and this week saw a trailer and poster drop to set the stage for the campus horror to come. Check out the video and poster–courtesy of Deadline–on this page.
Master, the feature film debut of writer/director Mariama Diallo, stars Regina Hall–best known to horror fans as Brenda Meeks of the Scary Movie franchise from 2000-2006. The film follows three women trying to find their niche at Ancaster College, whose “frosty elitism may disguise something more sinister,” according to the logline.
Professor Gail Bishop (Hall) has recently been promoted to “Master” of a residence hall, a first for a Black woman at the school. Bishop soon finds herself “wrapped up in the tribulations of freshman Jasmine Moore (Zoe Renee), who has been assigned a dorm room that is rumored to be haunted. Things get worse when Moore clashes with Professor Liv Beckman (Amber Gray).”
After a career of fighting to be accepted into Ancaster’s inner circle, Bishop is confronted “with the horrifying prospect of what lies beneath. Her question ultimately becomes not whether the school is haunted–but by whom.”
The cast is rounded out by Julia Nightingale, Talia Ryder, Ella Hunt, Talia Balsam, Anna Van Patten, D.C. Anderson, Noa Fisher, Angela Grovey, Will Hochman, John Kroft and Bruce Altman.
