The supernatural horror film Son, which we called a “bloody good movie” in our review, is set to premiere this week exclusively on Shudder.
Written and directed by Ivan Kavanagh (The Canal, Never Grow Old), Son stars Andi Matichak (Halloween franchise, Assimilate), Emile Hirsch (The Autopsy of Jane Doe), and Luke David Blumm (The King of Staten Island).
In the film, “after a mysterious group breaks into Laura’s home and attempts to abduct her eight-year-old son, David, the two of them flee town in search of safety. But soon after the failed kidnapping, David becomes extremely ill, suffering from increasing psychosis and convulsions. Following her maternal instincts, Laura commits unspeakable acts to keep him alive, but soon she must decide how far she is willing to go to save her son.”
Son premieres on July 8, 2021. If you’re looking for a movie with an intense unique story, this it.
