The American dream turns into a nightmare in Kurtis David Harder’s (Summerland, Incontrol) Spiral, a horror film for the current age, Spiral, which skillfully dissects themes of ostracization, otherness, and the cycles of societal rejection and hate, led by a breakout performance by Jeffrey Bowyer-Chapman. Check out the new intense trailer. 


In the film, “Malik (Jeffrey Bowyer-Chapman, “American Horror Story”, “Canada’s Drag Race)” and Aaron (Ari Cohen, IT: Chapter II) move to a small town in search of a better environment for them and their 16-year-old daughter (Jennifer Laporte, Web of Dreams). But nothing is as it seems as something sinister lies behind the picturesque homes and welcoming faces of their new neighbors (Lochlyn Munro, CW’s “Riverdale”).”


Also starring Ty Wood and Chandra Wes, the film was written by Colin Minihan (writer of the Shudder Original Z and the upcoming new Urban Legend) and John Poliquin (Selfie).


Spiral is produced by Minihan, Harder, and John Poliquin for Digital Interference, the celebrated Canadian indie label behind the SXSW sensation What Keeps You Alive (released by IFC Midnight), Shudder Originals Z and STILL/BORN, and the cult-hit Grave Encounters.
