We’re thrilled to partner with On Demand service Shudder for the UK and Ireland launch of Toronto thriller Revenge by writer-director Coralie Fargeat.
The film is on its way to the 2018 Sundance Film Festival and has previously played at genre festivals including Fantastic Fest and Sitges. Vertigo and Shudder are planning a spring 2018 theatrical release.
Staring Matilda Lutz (Ring) as Jen, a young woman who goes on vacation at a remote desert villa with her millionaire boyfriend (Kevin Janssens), the story begins as their romantic weekend goes off the rails when her lover’s hunting pals show up on the scene, triggering a wave of violence.
Shudder VP of global acquisitions and co-productions, Aurelie de Troyer said of the UK partnership: “At Shudder we’re thrilled to be collaborating with Vertigo Releasing and feel they are the perfect partner to reach UK fans with Revenge. Following the film’s fantastic reception at TIFF, we hope UK audiences will enjoy this unique take on the vengeance genre from talented new filmmaker Coralie.”
Our own Rupert Preston of Vertigo added: “We’re delighted to be partnering with Shudder. Revenge is a very special film that heralds the arrival of a unique new talent in Coralie Fargeat. We can’t wait to unleash the film on UK and Irish audiences.”
