PRESENTS A NEW SHUDDER ORIGINAL
CELEBRATED SURREAL SLASHER THRILLER LUCKY RELEASES TRAILER AHEAD OF MARCH 4TH RELEASE ON SHUDDER
Official Selection: Fantasia International Film Festival, FrightFest, NIGHTSTREAM, Sitges Film Festival, SXSW 2020
Life takes a sudden turn for May, a popular self-help book author, when she finds herself the target of a mysterious man with murderous intentions. Every night, without fail he comes after her, and every day the people around her barely seem to notice.
With no one to turn to, May is pushed to her limits and must take matters into her own hands to survive and to regain control of her life.
The sophomore feature from Iranian-American filmmaker Natasha Kermani (Imitation Girl), Lucky is written and starring Brea Grant, star of the indie darling After Midnight and writer/director of the critically acclaimed dark comedy 12 Hour Shift.
Home invasion horror by way of a time loop mystery, Lucky is a uniquely nightmarish, darkly funny, and timely slasher, and a thrilling addition to the Final Girl genre. The film stars Grant alongside Dhruv Uday Singh (Good Trouble) and Kausar Mohammed (East of La Brea, What Men Want), and is produced by Patrick Ewald, Chelsea Davenport, and lensed by Julia Swain.
Lucky is an Epic Pictures and Dread Presents production.
Runtime: 89 min
Lucky will premiere and debut exclusively to Shudder on March 4th in the US, Canada, UK, Ireland, Australia, and New Zealand, as well as via the Shudder offering within the AMC+ bundle where available.
LUCKY is a film that peers through the looking glass, into a surreal version of our own world. It is a genre story with real-life horrors just below the surface. It is a story that needs to be told now. Brea’s script has created a world that is a nightmarish parallel to the one we live in, close enough to feel terrifying when it all starts to unravel.
Our main character, MAY, is an ‘everywoman’ -relatable and written with a sharp sense of humor. We are pulled into her story, which is grounded by Brea’s wonderfully natural performance. We see May physically and emotionally change, trapped as the world aroundher grows more and more strange. The walls are closing in around her like they have for so many women throughout time, and we are rooting for her as she tries to fight back. As dryly funny as it is deeply unsettling, we hope that this film will be seen truly as a story for ourtimes. —Natasha Kermani, Director
