Shudder Snaps Up Rights To Horror-Comedy ‘Deadstream’

by Thomas Tuna

Maybe ghosts and the Internet don’t mix.

Deadstream–a new horror-comedy that will have its world premiere tonight at SXSW–will debut on Shudder on a yet-to-be-announced date, according to a report on Deadline.

The movie–the feature debut for the husband-and-wife directing team of Vanessa and Joseph Winter–follows a disgraced Internet personality (played by Joseph Winter) “who tries to win back his fans by live-streaming himself spending a night alone in an abandoned haunted house,” according to the logline.

But, when he accidentally unleashes a vengeful spirit, “his big comeback event becomes a real-life fight for his life, as he faces off with the sinister spirit of the house and her own powerful following.”

Deadstream–which also stars Melanie Stone–is produced by the Winters, Stone and Jared Cook.

The directing duo said in a statement that Deadstream was “a true collaboration from our small and dedicated crew, who took big swings with limited resources.”

Shudder general manager Craig Engler called the film “wickedly crowd pleasing” and a “creative and creepy gem,” adding that Deadstream is “the rare horror-comedy that is as frightening as it is funny.”
