SHUDDER, the top streaming service for thrillers, suspense and horror, has announced that Bryan Bertino’s acclaimed new chiller THE DARK AND THE WICKED will be released exclusively on the platform from 25 February 2021.
Acclaimed filmmaker Bryan Bertino (The Strangers, The Monster) returns to the home environment with another psychological terror, complete with scares, with a central theme of fractured family dynamics.
On a secluded farm, a man is bedridden and fighting through his final breaths while his wife (Julie Oliver-Touchstone, Preacher) slowly succumbs to overwhelming grief. Siblings Louise (Marin Ireland, Hell or High Water) and Michael (Michael Abbott Jr., The Death of Dick Long) return home to help, but it doesn’t take long for them to see that something’s wrong with mom—something more than her heavy sorrow. Gradually, they begin to suffer a darkness similar to their mother’s, marked by waking nightmares and a growing sense that an evil entity is taking over their family.
