Get ready to rethink your holiday plans because Shudder has dropped the chilling new trailer for OFFSEASON. The Original movie arrives on the streamer in June
Some island vacations aren’t what they cracked up to be, especially in Shudder’s chilling new horror Offseason. The original movie, written and directed by Mickey Keating stars Jocelin Donahue (Doctor Sleep), and Joe Swanberg (The Rental) and looks to be particularly unnerving. Especially if one of your worst fears is to be trapped on an island populated by demon-worshipping maniacs! It has all the hallmarks of a contemporary version of The Wicker Man, but with a far more ominous twist. But don’t take my word for it. Grab a cushion, turn on the lights, and check out the unsettling trailer below.
Upon receiving a mysterious letter that her mother’s gravesite has been vandalized, in OFFSEASON, Marie (Donahue) quickly returns to the isolated offshore island where her late mother is buried. When she arrives, she discovers that the island is closing for the offseason with the bridges raised until Spring, leaving her stranded. One strange interaction with the local townspeople after another, Marie soon realizes that something is not quite right in this small town. She must unveil the mystery behind her mother’s troubled past in order to make it out alive.
Written and directed by Mickey Keating (Psychopaths), Offseason stars Jocelin Donahue (Doctor Sleep), Joe Swanberg (The Rental, “Easy”), Richard Brake (3 From Hell, Mandy), Melora Walters (The Pale Door, “Pen15”) and Jeremy Gardner (After Midnight, The Mind’s Eye).
Offseason will be available exclusively to stream on the platform starting on Friday, June 10, 2022. As a Shudder exclusive, the platform will be the only subscription service that will carry the film in the U.S.; Canada, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia, and New Zealand.
