Shudder‘s new social media horror-thriller Influencer from writer-director Kurtis David Harder (Harpoon, Superhost, V/H/S 94), premieres this week on the streaming service for horror and thrillers.


In the film, “Madison (Emily Tennant, “Riverdale”) is a popular social media influencer who is having a lonely and uneventful trip in Thailand despite what she tells her followers on Instagram. While reflecting on her boyfriend canceling the trip, she meets CW (Cassandra Naud, “See”), a fearless and enigmatic traveler who offers to take her to some of the most Instagram-worthy locations. Together they share authentic meals and drinks with locals, discussing the differences between Madison’s online presence and CW’s lack of one. After showing Madison all of the amazing sights, things take a different turn when CW brings her to a surprise location – a deserted island completely off the grid.”


Influencer was produced by Tesh Guttikond, who co-wrote the script, Kurtis David Harder, Brandon Christensen, Jack Campbell, and Micah Henry. The film was shot on location in Thailand and also stars Sara Canning (“The Vampire Diaries”) and Rory J. Saper (The Legend of Tarzan).


The film premiered at Brooklyn Horror Film Festival last year before its festival tour, where it won multiple awards.


Influencer will make its exclusive streaming debut on Friday, May 26, 2023, on Shudder and will also be available to stream on AMC+.
