, a darkly vicious serial killer horror anthology, will be released in the
UK on Monday 13th June, courtesy of Koch Films. It will be
available via Sky Store, Virgin Movies, Apple TV / iTunes and Amazon, as
well as Google Play and Xbox.
The 5-part murderous tale, which was voted one of the Top 10 Hidden Horror
Gems of 2021, focuses on an unlikely group of aspiring
writers who live in Sugarton - a small town plagued by the apparent return
of an infamous serial killer, dubbed "Cutthroat". As usual, they meet in
their local bookstore run by Peter, the group’s leader, to share their
scary stories, but tonight, they are about to discover they've become the
stars of a sick killer's own twisted tale.
Shot in Arizona over a 16 day period, SCARE US is directed by Ryan Henry
Johnston (Head Director, Co-Director of Night Haul), Carl Jensen
IV (Co-Director of Dead Ringer) Ryan Kjolberg (Director of Untethered), Charlotte Lilt (Co-Director of Night Haul),
Tom J. McCoy (Director of The Resting) and Jordan Pillar
(Co-Director of Dead Ringer)
The Falling Flame Pictures production stars Tom Sandoval, Charlotte Lilt,
Michelle Palermo, Michael C. Alvarez, Ethan Drew, Jason Wiechert, Desiree
Srinivas and William Kenny. Writers are Will Hirsch, Carl Jensen IV, Ryan
Henry Johnston, Ryan Kjolberg, Tom J. McCoy and Jordan Pillar. It is
produced by Jason Wiechert, Ryan Henry Johnston and Robyn Sturgis.
Co-director, producer Ryan Henry Johnston commented “We hope UK audiences
appreciate what we feel are three of the coolest, most unique aspects of
the movie: each of the five main characters telling their short story also
plays the main character in the story they tell, and each story has its own
style, tone and subgenre. Our goal was to create an anthology every type of
horror fan can enjoy, and I hope they all do. And fans of Tom Sandoval from
VANDERPUMP RULES get a chance to see him do something very different”.
