Directed by Arielle Cimano and Jeff Ryan, in Mass Hysteria, a tourist dies on Halloween night in Salem, the crowd seeks justice by mounting a modern-day witch hunt. With the low-key charm of SHAUN OF THE DEAD and the sophisticated sarcasm of WHAT WE DO IN THE SHADOWS, MASS HYSTERIA is a dark comedy that conquers the horror of the Salem Witch Trials by juxtaposing it with the 2020 Covid pandemic and a funny, satirical story.
Jeff Ryan (Orange Is the New Black), Charlie Pollock (The Good Wife), Michelle Veintimilla (Gotham), Louis Cancelmi (Billions) Destry Allyn (I Know This Much Is True), Scott Swayze (Brooklyn Moving Company), and Geena Santiago (YouthMin) star in Mass Hysteria out July 20th.
