AMC Networks’ Shudder announced the acquisition of worldwide rights to the black comedy creature feature The Seed.
The film is set for a world premiere at Beyond Fest on Tuesday, October 5. The immediate acquisition from the streaming network shows a promising look into this horror film.
The film stars Lucy Martin (Vikings), Sophie Vavasseur (Resident Evil: Apocalypse), and Chelsea Edge (I Hate Suzie). Sam Walker (Duck Children) wrote and directed the movie.
Here’s the synopsis:
In The Seed, lifelong friends Deidre (Lucy Martin), Heather (Sophie Vavasseur), and Charlotte (Chelsea Edge) are finally getting some time away together, using the upcoming meteor shower to gather more followers for their social media channels. But what starts out as a girls’ getaway in the Mojave Desert descends into a battle for survival with the arrival of an invasive alien force whose air mystery soon proves to be alluring and irresistible to them. Before long the situation devolves into a battle to the death, where the stakes have galaxy-wide implications.
“Sam Walker’s stunning feature debut blends sci-fi, body horror, and pitch-black comedy into one stylish and scary package. We are thrilled to plant The Seed in the minds of Shudder members,” said Shudder general manager Craig Engler in a statement.
The Seed is produced by Shudder, Camelot Films, and Hardman Pictures, in association with Lipsync Productions, Amp International, The Malta Film Commission, and Ingenious Media. The producers are Matt Hookings, Chris Hardman, and James Norrie.
No specific release date announced for the Shudder streaming service except that it’s slated for early next year. In the meantime, buy your tickets now at www.beyondfest.com for tickets to watch the horror before anyone else.
