DREAD is gearing up for a brand new horror called ‘The Jester’ which will make it’s initial debut with a limited run in theaters starting on September 29th before landing on VOD platforms on October 3rd, fully engulfing the Halloween season.
The film was written and directed by indie filmmaker Colin Krawchuk who wrote the story along with Michael Sheffield. The film is based on a short film trilogy by Krawchuk.
The movie stars Lelia Symington (Brut Force), Matt Servitto (The Sopranos), Ken Arnold (Swagger) and Sam Lukowski (Satanic Hispanics).
According to the official synopsis: “After the recent death of their father, two estranged sisters find themselves being stalked by a malevolent being known as The Jester. Revealing himself to be more than just a man in a mask, the evil entity begins to further torment the inhabitants of this small town on Halloween night. The path to defeating this unholy monster lies with the two sisters who realize that the only way to survive is to figure out how to right the wrongs of their dark past.”
Epic Picture Group CEO Patrick Ewald stated the following: “When Brian Clarke (developer of The Mortuary Assistant game) introduced me to Colin’s insanely popular YouTube shorts of The Jester (over 30 million views), I was immediately captivated and knew we had to make a feature film out of them. It is incredible to see how Colin has taken his original concept and evolved it into a truly terrifying feature film. I can’t wait for audiences to experience this new face of evil in the supernatural entity known as The Jester.”
Check out the official trailer below and stay tuned to see if the film lands on a horror streaming platform in the future.
