SPIRAL will have its U.S. Premiere at the Brooklyn Horror Film Festival October 22nd, following a celebrated World Premiere at London’s FrightFest this past Summer.

Check out the clip here –  

Set in the 90s – Malik and Aaron, a same-sex couple struggle to raise their sixteen-year-old daughter Kayla after moving to a small town filled with mysterious secrets. Within weeks of arriving, a hate crime is committed in their home – sending Malik into a state of heightened paranoia. As he investigates the town he slowly starts to uncover that something much more sinister lies beneath its friendly facade.

The film harnesses the dread of reality in a unique socio-political frame and confronts society’s ever eagerness to sanction off an ‘other’- and turns it into a chilling horror fable with strong gay characters in the lead.

SPIRAL is directed by prolific young filmmaker Kurtis David Harder (INCONTROL) and stars Ari Cohen, Lochlyn Munroe and Jeffrey Bowyer-Chapman of American Horror Story and Lifetime’s critically acclaimed series unREAL, and recently announced judge on Drag Race Canada.

The film is written by Colin Minihan (WHAT KEEPS YOU ALIVE, IT STAINS THE SANDS RED) and John Poliquin (GRAVE ENCOUNTERS 2), who both produced on behalf of Digital Interference alongside Harder and Chris Ball.

Harder’s filmmaking credits include writer and co-producer on the upcoming teen comedy SUMMERLAND, as well as producer on the evil imaginary-friend horror Z (2019), bloody black comedy HARPOON (2019), survival thriller WHAT KEEPS YOU ALIVE (2018), Michael Ironside fronted KNUCKLEBALL (2018), meta-docu-thriller FAKE BLOOD (2017) and the parenthood-inspired horror STILL/BORN (2017), in addition to director of his sophomore and debut features, INCONTROL (2017) and CODY FITZ (2011).

SPIRAL is currently on the festival circuit, and garnering praise from critics internationally.
