Fresh from its North American premiere at the current Brooklyn Horror Film Festival, writer/director Jeffrey A. Brown’s debut feature has been snapped up by the streaming service.

THE BEACH HOUSE, which stars Liana Liberato, Noah Le Gros, Jake Weber and Maryann Nagel, will premiere on Shudder in 2020. The synopsis: “Hoping to reignite their relationship, Emily [Liberato] and Randall [Le Gros] arrive at their weekend getaway only to discover a peculiar older couple [Weber and Nagel] already staying there. They all agree to share the home and after an indulgent night of partying, wake up to a living nightmare of apocalyptic proportions.”

“I could not be happier with THE BEACH HOUSE finding its home on Shudder, which has brought so many classics and contemporary groundbreakers to horror fans everywhere,” Brown says. “I’ve always wanted our film to be discovered by this audience, and to come out alongside so many great films on Shudder’s platform is the ultimate endorsement. I can’t wait for the release!”

Shudder’s Emily Gotto says, “THE BEACH HOUSE is no ordinary vacation horror. Jeffrey and cast have crafted a mysterious, layered and increasingly eerie gem with shades of paranoid thriller and eco-terror. Shudder is thrilled to present this special seaside nightmare to our members.” We’ll keep you posted on the film’s premiere date.
