From director Jenn Wexler (The Ranger), The Sacrifice Game is headed to Shudder for the upcoming holiday season, and we’ve been provided with a release date this week.
The Sacrifice Game spreads holiday fear on Shudder beginning December 8, 2023.
Meagan Navarro wrote in her review out of Fantasia, “What begins as something all too familiar eventually gives way to something more satisfying and charming. The Sacrifice Game may be a holiday ruiner for many of its characters, but for audiences, it’s a holiday horror treat.”
Fantasia described The Sacrifice Game as “a gripping and stylish ‘70s-set chiller involving school girls, power-mad killers and occult prophecy,” filled with both “gore and lore.”
In the upcoming horror movie…
“The Blackvale School for Girls, 1971. It’s bad enough that students Samantha and Clara can’t go home for the holidays, but things take a deadly turn when a gang of cult killers arrives at their doorstep—just in time for Christmas.”
Mena Massoud, Olivia Scott Welch, Olympian Gus Kenworthy, Chloë Levine, Madison Baines, Derek Johns, Laurent Pitre and Georgia Acken star.
Shot in Oka, Quebec, the film is co-written by Wexler and Sean Redlitz, and produced by Philip Kalin-Hajdu, Albert I. Melamed, Heather Buckley and Todd Slater.
Executive producers are Kalin-Hajdu and Melamed; Emily Gotto and Samuel Zimmerman of Shudder; Roman Kopelevich, Roman Viaris and Crystal Hill of Red Sea Media; Mark Côté, Peter Phok, Mena Massoud and Olivia Scott Welch.
Mena was in attendance for a special screening in Toronto of his new animated film Butterfly Tale Tuesday night. The film has a limited release in US theaters beginning tomorrow and will have its premiere at the Atlantic International Film Festival on October 16th. Photos from the red carpet have been added into the photo gallery.
On behalf of myself, The Mena Massoud Network visitors, and the rest of Mena’s fans, I would like to wish him a very happy 32nd birthday! We all are wishing you a great year full of happiness, joy, love, luck, success, health and peace. And most importantly, thanks for being such an amazing person and inspiration to all of us.
