The Cellar
Critically-acclaimed Irish writer-director, Brendan Muldowney's latest supernatural movie 'The Cellar', starring Elisha Cuthbert and Eoin Macken, will premiere exclusively on Shudder in April, ahead of its world premiere at SXSW Festival.

Shudder, which is fast becoming the streaming home of horror, thrillers and the supernatural, have announced that the film will be available to their subscribers in North America, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia and New Zealand from April 15, with a same day US theatrical release. The movie will also be the closing film of FrightFest Glasgow.

'The Cellar' was filmed on location in Roscommon, Ireland, and tells the story of Keira Woods played by '24' star Elisha Cuthbert. Keira's daughter mysteriously vanishes in the cellar of their new house in the country. She soon discovers there is an ancient and powerful entity controlling their home that she will have to face or risk losing her family’s souls forever.

"'The Cellar' is a riveting story that we think will appeal to both horror lovers and broader audiences alike, and we're delighted to work with RLJE Films to bring it to the widest possible audience," said Craig Engler, GM of Shudder, "Brendan and this talented team have crafted a dark and haunting tale that we're excited to share with audiences this April."

"Ever since we made the short film 'The Ten Steps', which 'The Cellar' is based on, I have seen the profound effect and power it has had on audiences," said Muldowney. "I am really excited to be working with Shudder and RLJE Films in bringing this feature-length version of the nightmare to a wider audience."

'The Cellar' is an Irish and Belgian co-production with Conor Barry of Savage Productions and Richard Bolger of Hail Mary Pictures serving as producers.
