‘Thrilling, chilling, and absolutely delightful’
‘Gives us that roller coaster experience…has a beguiling effect that has us constantly wanting to hear the next story… an inspired approach to honouring such magic’
‘A delightful and spooky surprise of a movie’
‘Cabin-fire playfulness proving contagious, a nasty game we might not want to play but will happily watch instead’
Critically acclaimed comedy horror hit Scare Me, from Josh Ruben in his feature directorial debut, which he also writes and stars in, has been released on Blu-ray from Acorn Media International in conjunction with Shudder, following its success on the streaming service.
This ‘Imaginative and witty, razor-sharp horror comedy’ (Bloody Disgusting) combines innovative sound design and gripping performances from Aya Cash (The Boys, You’re The Worst), Chris Redd (Saturday Night Live) and Josh Ruben for an outside-of-the-box horror, unlike anything you’ve seen before. There may not be monsters and ghouls but Scare Me will still have you cowering behind the sofa with vivid storytelling akin to those dark nights around a campfire.
A chance meeting between new in town Fred (Josh Ruben) and renowned author Fanny (Aya Cash) results in the beginning of a ‘friendship’. During a power outage, they decide to tell each other scary stories. With the pizza delivery driver (Chris Redd) joining in with the fun, the two grow increasingly competitive. The more they commit to their tales, the more real the stories become. As Fred’s masculine pride is challenged, fiction turns to fact as the terror gets all too real.
