"Everything alright over there, my friend?"

Rebekah McKendry's Glorious is coming to Shudder in one week, and we have an exclusive sneak peek at a clip to get you... in the mood. Hot off of its widely-praised world premiere at the Fantasia International Film Festival, Glorious follows Wes (Ryan Kwanten) as he spirals after a bad breakup. He ends up at a remote rest stop miles away from civilization, where his situation worsens after he finds himself locked inside the bathroom with a mysterious figure (J.K. Simmons) speaking to him from an adjacent stall. As Wes tries to escape, he finds himself an unwilling player in a situation bigger and more terrible than he could possibly imagine…

Glorious speaks to my adoration of Lovecraft, gore, absurdist humor, philosophy, and the type of transgressive movies that leave you thinking I can’t believe I just saw that,” says McKendry. “It is a wild mix of horror, humor, and heady moralistic concepts about our own existential realizations of who we really are, forcing each of us to stare into our personal abyss. And sometimes, the abyss stares back… and maybe has a favor to ask.”

If you're in Los Angeles, you can also check out Glorious TONIGHT for FREE at the USC campus, just RSVP here. In the meantime, check out this exclusive sneak peek below.

When Glorious hits Shudder August 18th McKendry and friends will also be doing a live tweet along, join in the party at 9pm ET/ 6pm Pacific.
