Fresh off its U.S. premiere, premium streaming service for horror, thriller and the supernatural, Shudder has acquired Revealer, the feature debut from Emmy Award-winning director Luke Boyce.
Revealer was made as the entire shift of the world changed, and Boyce responded to this creatively crafting a darkly funny and surprisingly moving apocalyptic horror.
The neon-drenched horror-filled film stars Caito Aase, winner of the Audience Award for Best Actress at Kansas City’s Panic Fest, and Shaina Schrooten.
In Revealer, what started off as a typical Chicago workday in 1987 for Angie Pittarelli (Aase), a dancer at the Revealers Bookstore peep show booth, turns tragic when her annoying boss is suddenly killed in an uprising outside the store leaving her trapped in the booth, unable to escape. Soon she learns that hiding out in the booth next to hers is none other than Sally Mewbourne (Schrooten), an overzealous religious protester that seems to get a kick out of regularly harassing Angie. Sally is in a panic claiming that the rapture has occurred and the apocalypse has begun. With nowhere left to turn, Angie and Sally must separate their differences and come together to fight this unknown evil, navigating the treacherous bootlegger tunnels below the store to survive the unthinkable.
Written by comic authors Tim Seeley and Michael Moreci, Revealer is produced by Shatterglass Films and The Line Film Co., along with a number of genre mainstays including Sarah Sharp, Robert Patrick Stern and Brett Hays. Aaron B. Koontz rounds out the producing team under his Paper Street Pictures banner.
Revealer will be available exclusively on Shudder on Thursday, June 23 2022.
