A Northern Irish folk horror movie, Shudder has picked up Mandrake for streaming release here in the United States, along with the UK, Ireland, Australia and New Zealand.
Deadline first reported the news this morning.
“The film follows probation officer Cathy Madden who is given the task of rehabilitating notorious killer ‘Bloody’ Mary Laidlaw back into society after twenty years of jail. Cathy has always believed that every client deserves a shot at redemption, but her beliefs are firmly tested when two children disappear near Mary’s farm.”
Deirdre Mullins (The Drowning) plays Cathy in the upcoming Mandrake, and Derbhle Crotty (Notes On A Scandal) stars as ‘Bloody’ Mary Laidlaw. The cast also includes Seamus O’Hara (The Northman), Jude Hill (Belfast) and Roisin Gallagher (The Dry).
Lynne Davison directed Mandrake, written by Matt Harvey (An Act of Defiance).
Davison said in a statement, “With the challenges of the pandemic, it has often felt like my ambitious debut feature might never find its place in the world. But not only are we experiencing an incredible festival run and fantastic reviews but I can now proudly state that my film, the first of many, will be available on the premiere genre streaming service in the world, Shudder! Joining the Shudder family is truly a highlight of my burgeoning career.”
