Shudder Acquires Rights to Sundance Film Selection Speak No Evil

Speak No Evil

With its world premiere of the psychological horror Speak No Evil at the Sundance Film Festival, the horror streaming network Shudder announces its acquisition of the rights just ahead of its premiere.

In Speak No Evil, on a vacation in Tuscany, two families—one Danish, one Dutch—meet and become fast friends. Months later, the free-spirited Dutch family extends an invitation to the more conservative Danish family for a holiday weekend getaway at their countryside home. However, it doesn’t take long before things gradually get out of hand as the joy of reunion is replaced with misunderstandings. The Dutch hospitality quickly turns unnerving for the Danes, and they find themselves increasingly caught in a web of their own politeness in the face of eccentric…or is it sinister…behavior.

The movie stars Morten Burian and Sidsel Siem Koch as the Danish couple, Bjørn and Louise, with Fedja van Huêt and Karina Smulders as the Dutch couple, Patrick and Karin. Christian Tafdrup directed the movie and wrote it with his brother Mads Tafdrup (A Horrible Woman).

Speak No Evil is a bold entry into the genre for writer/director Christian Tafdrup that expertly blends terror, humor, and the mundanities of human interaction,” said Craig Engler, general manager of Shudder. “We can’t wait to transport our members to the Dutch countryside for a casual weekend of psychological twists and shocking turns.”

This is one of the better films coming out of the Sundance Film Festival this year. The movie creepily surprises the audiences as utter confusion slowly builds into a nightmare with the eccentricities of a family. It is indeed a psychological thriller with many twists.

Shudder sets for its release on its network in North America, the United Kingdom, and Ireland in late 2022. It is currently being showcased at the Sundance Film Festival 2022 this week.
