With today being Valentine’s Day, is perfect timing for Shudder to announce that the streaming service for horror and thrillers, has acquired the horror-romance Attachment.


Attachment is a film about love at first sight, steeped in Jewish folklore. Maja, a Danish has-been actress falls in love with Leah, a young, Jewish academic from London. But when Leah suffers a mysterious seizure, leading to a debilitating injury, Maja fears their whirlwind romance might be cut short – and decides to follow Leah back to her home in the Hasidic area of Stamford Hill, London. There, she meets her new downstairs neighbor: Leah’s mother, Chana. An overbearing and secretive woman, Chana seems resistant to all of Maja’s attempts to win her over. And as Maja begins to notice strange occurrences in the building, she begins to suspect that Chana’s secrets could be much darker that first anticipated – and that the woman she loves might be carrying the biggest secret of all.


“Gabriel Bier Gislason is a really talented debut director which clearly shows in his thrilling new feature ATTACHMENT, and we are excited to see that the Shudder team feels exactly the same.” Wendt commented.


“We’re delighted that Shudder will be home to Gabriel’s feature debut,” said Gotto. “We were immediately drawn to this brilliantly crafted story of love, family and tradition told through the lens of horror and brought to life through powerful performances from this film’s stellar cast.”


The English and Danish-language film stars Josephine Park (Shorta, The Rain), and Ellie Kendrick (“Game of Thrones”) as well as the Danish actress Sofie Gråbøl (The House That Jack Built) and award-winning actor David Dencik (“Chernobyl”). Attachement was written and directed by Gabriel Bier Gislason and produced by Thomas Heinesen for Nordisk Film Production A/S. The film is supported by New Danish Screen / Mette Damgaard in collaboration with Yousee and DR.


The deal was negotiated by Susan Wendt, Managing Director of TrustNordisk on behalf of the filmmakers, and Emily Gotto, VP, Global Acquisitions & Co-Productions on behalf of Shudder.
