Hollywood Suite to Premiere Blumhouse TV’s “INTO THE DARK: CULTURE SHOCK” in July

Monday, June 27, 2022 | News


Just in time for American Independence Day, Canadian specialty movie programmer Hollywood Suite will premiere CULTURE SHOCK, part of Blumhouse TV‘s holiday-themed anthology series Into the Dark, via its on-demand platform on July 1. A release on Hollywood Suite’s 2000s-themed cable channel will follow (appropriately) on July 4.

CULTURE SHOCK stars Martha Higareda (Altered Carbon) as Marisol, a young Mexican woman who embarks on a horrifying and violent sojourn across the southern border to discover that the American dream may be an inescapable nightmare. Genre favorite Barbara Crampton (Re-Animator, Superhost) costars. A terrifying and timely film, CULTURE SHOCK is directed by filmmaker Gigi Saul Guerrero. Be sure to read Rue Morgue’s exclusive interview with Guerrero here.

Hollywood Suite will also premiere the politically charged Into the Dark installment The Current Occupant in which an amnesiac, who may (or may not) be the president of the United States, awakens in an insane asylum on July 4.

The holiday horrors on Hollywood Suite will continue with Blood Moon on August 12 (the day of the August full moon) and Tentacles, premiering on August 28. Into the Dark hits the books with School Spirit on September 6 and thanks heaven (or hell) for little girls on Daughters Day, September 23, with Pure.
