One of this year’s best festival premieres has found its streaming home.
Shudder has announced its acquisition of North American and UKI rights to the Australian chiller YOU’LL NEVER FIND ME, with a debut set for 2024. The film, which won raves (including ours) from its world premiere at this year’s Tribeca Film Festival, next plays Austin’s Fantastic Fest this month. Josiah Allen and Indianna Bell directed from Bell’s script, and Brendan Rock and Jordan Cowan star. According to the official synopsis, Rock plays “an isolated man living at the back of a desolate caravan park who is visited by a desperate young woman [Cowan] seeking shelter from a violent storm. As the savage storm worsens, these solitary souls begin to feel threatened–but who should really be afraid?”
“We are absolutely thrilled to be joining the Shudder family,” Allen and Bell say. “We know our film has found its perfect home amongst the strange, spooky and sinister films on the streaming service and can’t wait to share YOU’LL NEVER FIND ME with American and UK audiences next year.”
“Josiah and Indianna bring a taut, tense, and twisted two-hander,” says Shudder’s Emily Gotto. Unrelenting and exciting, YOU’LL NEVER FIND ME creeps under your skin and stays there. Delighted to bring these talented new directorial voices to Shudder and beyond.”
