Shudder Drops New Trailer For “Spiral,” Starring Jeffrey Bowyer-Chapman

Tuesday, September 8, 2020 | News

A couple move to a small town in the hopes of enjoying a better quality of life, but nothing is as picturesque as it seems in SPIRAL, coming soon from AMC Networks’ Shudder.

Malik (Jeffrey Bowyer-Chapman of American Horror Story, Canada’s Drag Race) and Aaron (Ari Cohen of IT: CHAPTER TWO) move to a small town in search of a better environment for them and their 16-year-old daughter (Jennifer Laport of Web of Dreams). But nothing is as it seems as something sinister lies behind the picturesque homes and welcoming faces of their new neighbors (Lochlyn Munro of CW’s Riverdale).

A horror film for the current age, SPIRAL skillfully dissects themes of ostracization, otherness, and the cycles of societal rejection and hate, led by a breakout performance by Jeffrey Bowyer-Chapman. With Ty Wood and Chandra West. Written by Colin Minihan (writer of the Shudder Original Z and the upcoming Urban Legend) and John Poliquin (Selfie), directed by Kurtis David Harder (Summerland). SPIRAL is produced by Minihan, Harder, and John Poliquin for Digital Interference, the celebrated Canadian indie label behind the SXSW sensation What Keeps You Alive (released by IFC Midnight), Shudder Originals Z and Still/Born, as well as cult-hit Grave Encounters.

SPIRAL premieres Thursday, September 17th, exclusively on Shudder
