This variation on the haunted-house form is coming your way in March.
Shudder has announced that NIGHT’S END, from director Jennifer Reeder (KNIVES AND SKIN, V/H/S/94) and writer Brett Nevue, will premiere on the streamer’s platforms in North America, Australia, New Zealand, the United Kingdom and Ireland on Thursday, March 31. Geno Walker, Kate Arrington, Felonius Munk, Michael Shannon, Lawrence Grimm, Daniel Kyri, Theo Germaine and Morgan Reesh star; the synopsis: “In NIGHT’S END, an anxious shut-in unwittingly moves into a haunted apartment and hires a mysterious stranger to perform an exorcism which takes a horrific turn.”
“As a longtime Shudder fan,” Reeder says, “I am deeply honored to now be part of the Shudder fam! I’ve made two Shudder films this year, which feels like a dream–although both films play out more like nightmares. Throughout the process of making these films with Shudder, I have felt enormously supported and my creative vision protected and amplified. Shudder cares as much about filmmakers as they do about films which is a rare and coveted combination.”
“Jennifer Reeder is an exciting and bold filmmaker who was an integral part of V/H/S/94, Shudder’s most watched movie ever,” says Shudder general manager Craig Engler. “NIGHT’S END is eerie but human, sharply written and sure to surprise our members this March.”
