Shudder, AMC Networks’ premium streaming service for horror, thrillers and the supernatural, announced today that the radical third person slasher “In A Violent Nature” will World Premiere at the 2024 Sundance Film Festival.
The debut feature film from writer and director Chris Nash will premiere in the Midnight Section. “In A Violent Nature” is a Shudder Original produced by Shudder, Peter Kuplowsky, and Shannon Hanmer, and will be released in 2024.
The film marks the fifth consecutive year that Shudder has brought films to the Sundance Film Festival, following Jayro Bustamante’s LA LLORONA, Josh Ruben’s SCARE ME, Madeleine Sims-Fewer and Dusty Mancinelli’s VIOLATION, Christian Tafdrup’s SPEAK NO EVIL, and Laura Moss’ BIRTH/REBIRTH.
“”In A Violent Nature” is the culmination of a creative partnership between myself, Chris Nash and fellow producer Shannon Hanmer,” said producer Peter Kuplowsky, who is also the lead programmer for the Toronto International Film Festival’s Midnight Madness section.
“We’re ecstatic and thankful that it has led to a collaboration with Shudder, whose support and enthusiasm is extraordinary and humbling. Nash’s vision cuts between the atmospheric creeping dread of SKINAMARINK and the shocking gore of WHEN EVIL LURKS, both Shudder Originals, so this is truly a match made in horror heaven.”
“”In A Violent Nature” is a tremendous new slasher. We’re thrilled for you to meet Johnny, whose reign of terror honors the iconic subgenre while taking audiences on a singular and brutal new journey within it,” said Samuel Zimmerman, Shudder’s VP Of Programming. “Chris Nash’s bold perspective represents the best of Shudder, marrying the genre’s traditions with its exhilarating next steps.”
