Shudder is getting in on the "filmed in quarantine" game...
...Via Deadline, Shudder has acquired the filmed in quarantine horror flick Host from director Rob Savage, which was shot remotely in the homes of the actors during lockdown!
In Host, written by Savage, Gemma Hurley and Jed Shepherd:
"Six friends hire a medium to hold a séance via Zoom during lockdown — but they get far more than they bargain for as things quickly go wrong. When an evil spirit starts invading their homes, they begin to realize they might not survive the night."
The film stars Haley Bishop (Deep State), Radina Drandova (Dawn of the Deaf), Edward Linard (The Rebels), Jemma Moore (Doom: Annihilation), Caroline Ward (Stalling It) and Emma Louise Webb (The Crown).
Impressively, all the actors operated their own cameras, pulled off their own practical effects and lit their own scenes while Savage directed them remotely.
Host will release on the streaming service on July 30th.
