Lucky is one of the most innovative slashers to come around in years. The film starring starring Brea Grant and directed by Natasha Kermani is a smart home invasion movie that uses familiar horror tropes to deliver a powerful message. The story tackles important messages of the day such as why victims remain silent and domestic abuse. All the while, it uses the language of horror.
In anticipation of is upcoming release on the streaming network, Shudder dropped a new trailer for the movie.
Life takes a sudden turn for May, a popular self-help book author, when she finds herself the target of a mysterious man with murderous intentions. Every night, without fail he comes after her, and every day the people around her barely seem to notice. With no one to turn to, May is pushed to her limits and must take matters into her own hands to survive and to regain control of her life.
The sophomore feature from Iranian-American filmmaker Natasha Kermani (Imitation Girl), Lucky is written and starring Brea Grant, star of the indie darling After Midnight and writer/director of the critically acclaimed dark comedy 12 Hour Shift.
Home invasion horror by way of a time loop mystery, Lucky is a uniquely nightmarish, darkly funny, and timely slasher, and a thrilling addition to the Final Girl genre. The film stars Grant alongside Dhruv Uday Singh (Good Trouble) and Kausar Mohammed (East of La Brea, What Men Want), and is produced by Patrick Ewald, Chelsea Davenport, and lensed by Julia Swain.
Lucky comes to Shudder March 4
