The holidays can be a scary time.
The Sacrifice Game–a supernatural thriller set in the 1970s–will be another entry in Shudder’s ever-growing horror lineup, according to a report on Deadline. The film–which does not yet have a release window–is heading into production next week.
Directed by Jenn Wexler–her second feature after 2018’s The Ranger–the film follows Samantha and Clara, two students staying behind at their girls’ boarding school over Christmas break in 1971. The problem? They must survive the night “against uninvited visitors,” according to the logline.
The film–written by Wexler and Sean Redlitz–stars Mena Massoud (Aladdin), Olivia Scott Welch (Fear Street), Gus Kenworthy (American Horror Story: 1984) and Chloe Levine (The OA). Derek Johns, Laurent Pitre, Madison Baines and newcomer Georgia Acken round out the ensemble.
Wexler said The Sacrifice Game is her “tribute to the beauty and boldness of ’70s horror, anchored in an unlikely friendship between outsiders.”
Shudder general manager Craig Engler said the movie “promises to be a wild and thrilling ride that offers a fresh take on timeless horror themes. We can’t wait to share it with our members.”
