Shudder and RLJE Films today announced their partnership on the newest Shudder Original film, Destroy All Neighbors, which will bring The Lost Boys and Bill & Ted trilogy star Alex Winter back to the horror genre!
From director Josh Forbes (Contracted: Phase II) and and also starring Jonah Ray Rodrigues (Pooka Lives!, Mystery Science Theater 3000), Destroy All Neighbors will have a day-and-date release in theaters and on Shudder in 2023.
In Destroy All Neighbors, struggling prog-rock musician William Brown (Rodrigues) finds himself in a living nightmare when he accidentally kills Vlad (Winter), the neighbor from hell. Vlad’s disembodied corpse delights in tormenting William, sending him further into madness and impending doom.
Winter and Rodrigues will produce alongside Russell Sanzgiri (Michael Bolton’s Big Sexy Valentine’s Day Special), from an original script written by Mike Benner, Jared Logan, and Charles Pieper.
"We’re so excited for Josh, Jonah and Alex to bring this hilariously dark take on ‘the neighbor from hell’ to our members,’" said Shudder general manager Craig Engler. "Giving this tentpole feature as big of a launchpad as possible with our partners at RLJE Films is sure to get the whole ‘neighborhood’ talking."
"We’re thrilled to be working with Shudder and RLJE on this labor of love," added Winter. "Our film is a return to the kind of physical effects-driven genre comedy that’s all too rare these days."
Casting is underway and production is set to commence this July.
