SHUDDER Slates Original Production ‘WHO INVITED THEM’ Just Days After its Overlook Film Festival U.S. Premiere

Shudder has today announced having acquired the rights to writer/director Duncan Birmingham‘s (Maron, Blunt Talk) horror-comedy Who Invited Them hot on the tail of its New Orleans’ Overlook Film Festival U.S. premiere.

Starring Ryan Hansen (Party Down), Melissa Tang (The Kominsky Method), Timothy Granaderos (13 Reasons Why) and Perry Mattfeld (In the Dark), the film invites audiences to Adam and Margo’s (Hansen, Tang) housewarming party which is a great success. However, one mysterious couple (Granaderos, Mattfeld) lingers long after all the other guests have left. The uninvited couple reveals themselves to be their wealthy neighbors, Tom and Sasha. But as a single nightcap leads to another, Adam and Margo start to suspect these new friends are actually duplicitous strangers.

Commenting on the platform’s latest Shudder Original Film, Shudder general manager Craig Engler said, “Who Invited Them puts a fresh, fun twist on the home invasion genre. It’s darkly comic yet shockingly sinister. We can’t wait for Shudder members to check out the party.” Whilst writer/director Birmingham added, ”Some of my favorite filmmakers have their films on Shudder and everyone knows horror fans make the best audiences so it’s a real thrill for our dark twisted labor of love to find a home there. I’m very excited to be part of the family.”

Shudder holds worldwide rights to the film which will be available exclusively on Shudder in the US, Canada, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia and New Zealand on Thursday, September 1.
