Shudder Opens ‘The Beach House’ This July

The new contagion-themed horror film The Beach House is set to premiere on Shudder this July.

The indie “sci-fi/horror” film is directed by Jeffrey A. Brown, starring Liana Liberato (Banana Split, Hulu’s Light as a Feather), Noah Le Gros (A Score to Settle), Jake Weber (Dawn of the Dead, Meet Joe Black), and Maryann Nagel.

The feature directorial debut for Brown, The Beach House is an apocalyptic thriller that presents an alluring mix of scorching seaside imagery, claustrophobic isolation, mysterious contagion, and gruesome body horror, with a breakout lead performance from Liberato. A hit on the festival circuit, and coming soon to streaming!

In the film, a romantic getaway turns into a struggle for survival when unexpected guests – and eventually the environment – exhibit signs of a mysterious infection.

Official synopsis: Escaping to his family’s beach house to reconnect, Emily and Randall find their off-season trip interrupted by Mitch and Jane Turner, an older couple acquainted with Randall’s estranged father. Unexpected bonds form as the couples let loose and enjoy the isolation, but it all takes an ominous turn as increasingly strange environmental phenomena begin to warp their peaceful evening. As the effects of an infection become evident, Emily struggles to make sense of the contagion before it’s too late.

The Beach House will premiere on Shudder on July 9.
