Following its international premiere at Sundance’s 2021 film festival, Madeleine Sims-Fewer and Dusty Mancinelli’s chilling debut feature Violation is heading exclusively to Shudder, AMC Networks’ premiere streaming service for horror, thriller, and the supernatural.
Written, produced, and directed by Madeleine Sims-Fewer and Dusty Mancinelli, Violation is a turbulent feminist revenge fable that explores the idea of trauma within families and untangles a sticky web of resentment as a troubled woman on the edge of divorce embarks on a vicious crusade when her sister and brother-in-law betray her trust. The film explores gender politics, selfishness, and the abuse of power.
Sims-Fewer also stars in the film alongside Anna Maguire, Jesse LaVercombe, Obi Albili, Jasmin Geljo, and Cynthia Ashperger. The deal was negotiated by XYZ Films on behalf of the filmmakers and Shudder’s Emily Gotto.
Shudder continues to be at the forefront of curating many of the most exciting and critically-acclaimed independent and international genre films, including Rob Savage’s Host, Jayro Bustamante’s La Llorona and Joko Anwar’s Impetigore (both official selections for the 2021 International Oscar race), Richard Stanley’s Color Out of Space, Josh Ruben’s Scare Me, Jeff Barnaby’s Blood Quantum, Ryan Spindell’s The Mortuary Collection, and many more. The service has also garnered attention for its original programming including the breakout hit series “Creepshow” under showrunner Greg Nicotero, Jay Cheel’s “Cursed Films” and the acclaimed documentary Horror Noire: A History Of Black Horror.
