Hollywood Thriller ‘Gwen’ Trailer Released

WEB DESK: Folk horror is having a bit of a resurgence at the moment. Last year brought the Netflix thriller Apostle, Ari Aster returned with a new take on trauma in this summer’s Midsommar, and the next buzzy folk horror you should put on your list is about to land in theatres.

RLJE Films and Shudder are bringing the festival hit Gwen to theatres, VOD, and digital next month, ahead of the film’s release on the Shudder streaming service.

Written and directed by William McGregor (Misfits), Gwen follows a young girl in 19th Century Wales during a moment of crisis. With her father absent, her mother falling to a mysterious, and a mob of angry villagers threatening to take her farm,  a mysterious evil begins to take hold of her home.

The film debuted to warm critical reception at last year’s Toronto International Film Festival and went on to foster that buzz in the 2019 festival circuit.
