Shudder has bought the worldwide rights for the writer-director Sam Walker‘s debut feature film, The Seed, before its world premiere at Beyond Fest on October 5. Shudder will release the horror comedy film in North America, the UK, Ireland, Australia, and New Zealand early next year.
The Seed tells the story of three life-long friends, Deidre (Lucy Martin), Heather (Sophie Vavasseur) and Charlotte (Chelsea Edge), who are ready to go on a get away together in order to gain more social media followers using a meteor shower. But things go awry during their girls’ getaway in Mojave Desert when an alien force descends upon the earth and the fun getaway becomes a battle for survival.
Shudder’s general manager, Craig Engler said this about the film:
“Sam Walker’s stunning feature debut blends sci-fi, body horror and pitch-black comedy into one stylish and scary package. We are thrilled to plant The Seed in the minds of Shudder members.”
Walker praised Shudder and shared his excitement by saying:
“Very happy to have found the perfect home for my apocalyptic, inter-dimensional, alien sex flick. I made the film to purge the bitterness from my soul and to share it with others. So that I feel better. Which I now do. Thanks Shudder, you’re the best.”
The Seed was produced by Shudder, Camelot Films, and Hardman Pictures, in association with Lipsync Productions, Amp International, The Malta Film Commission, and Ingenious Media. The film was also produced by Matt Hookings, Chris Hardman, and James Norrie.
