Trapped in a peep show booth, it's happened to all of us. After making its U.S. premiere at Panic Fest, Emmy Award-winning director Luke Boyce's feature debut, Revealer, is coming to Shudder! Starring Caito Aase (Black Mold, Panic Fest Audience Award for Best Actress) and Shaina Schrooten (Scare Package II: Rad Chad’s Revenge), Revealer takes us to 1980's Chicago.
Boyce is excited about bringing his neon-soaked horror to Shudder, "We made Revealer as the entire shift of the world changed beneath our feet and we responded to that creatively. It is a movie that's wild and scary, but also heartfelt and emotional. It's a neon-drenched, horror-filled call for connectedness and we are so incredibly excited to have teamed up with Shudder, a platform and community I love dearly, as the perfect home to share it with the world."
Revealer takes place in Chicago, 1987 as we follow Angie Pittarelli on a typical work day. Angie works as a dancer at the Revealers Bookstore peep show booth. When an uprising takes place outside the store, her boss is killed in an altercation, leaving Angie stranded inside the booth, unable to escape. To make matters worse, hiding out in the booth next to hers is none other than Sally Mewbourne, an overzealous religious protester that seems to get a kick out of regularly harassing Angie. Sally believes the apocalypse is nigh and the rapture has occurred, which sends her into a bit of a tizzy. Angie and Sally are forced to figure out how to work together to escape and navigate the treacherous bootlegger tunnels below the store to survive the unthinkable.
We previously revealed first-look images, now we have an exclusive reveal of the key art and official trailer.
Shudder's general manager Craig Engler said, “Luke Boyce has crafted a darkly funny and surprisingly moving apocalyptic horror that we can't wait to share with Shudder members.”
Written by comic authors Tim Seeley (Hack/Slash, Revival) and Michael Moreci (Barbaric, The Plot), produced by Shatterglass Films and The Line Film Co. along with a number of genre mainstays including Sarah Sharp, Robert Patrick Stern and Brett Hays. Aaron B. Koontz rounds out the producing team under his Paper Street Pictures banner. Take a look at the full trailer below.
