SHUDDER, the premium streaming service for horror, thrillers and the supernatural, is thrilled to announce that Bryan Bertino’s acclaimed new chiller THE DARK AND THE WICKED will be released exclusively on SHUDDER from 25 February 2021.
Acclaimed filmmaker Bryan Bertino returns to the home environment to mine more psychological terror and sophisticated scares in a film which goes straight to the heart of fractured family dynamics.
On a secluded farm, a man is bedridden and fighting through his final breaths while his wife slowly succumbs to overwhelming grief. Siblings Louise and Michael return home to help, but it doesn’t take long for them to see that something’s wrong with mom—something more than her heavy sorrow. Gradually, they begin to suffer a darkness similar to their mother’s, marked by waking nightmares and a growing sense that an evil entity is taking over their family.
