Influencer Makes Its Exclusive Streaming Debut on May 26
Shudder, AMC Networks’ premium streaming service for horror, thrillers and the supernatural, released today the trailer and key art for the new indie thriller film Influencer, from Shudder alumnus, writer/director Kurtis David Harder (Harpoon, Superhost, V/H/S 94). The film, which premiered at Brooklyn Horror Film Festival last year and played various festivals, winning multiple awards, will make its exclusive streaming debut Friday, May 26 on Shudder and will also be available to stream on AMC+.
Influencer tells the story of Madison (Emily Tennant, Riverdale), a popular social media influencer who is having a lonely and uneventful trip in Thailand despite what she tells her followers on Instagram. While reflecting on her boyfriend canceling the trip, she meets CW (Cassandra Naud, See), a fearless and enigmatic traveler who offers to take her to some of the most Instagram-worthy locations. Together they share authentic meals and drinks with locals, discussing the differences between Madison’s online presence and CW’s lack of one. After showing Madison all of the amazing sights, things take a different turn when CW brings her to a surprise location – a deserted island that is completely off the grid.
Influencer was produced by Kurtis David Harder, Tesh Guttikonda (co-writer), Brandon Christensen, Jack Campbell and Micah Henry. The film was shot on location in Thailand and also stars Sara Canning (The Vampire Diaries) and Rory J. Saper (The Legend of Tarzan).
