Ryan Kwanten in Glorious

Shudder have shared a brand clip from Rebekah McKendry’s Lovecraftian horror Glorious, starring Ryan Kwanten and J.K. Simmons. The film is now available on Shudder.

Spiraling out after a bad breakup, Wes (Ryan Kwanten) ends up at a remote rest stop miles away from civilization. His situation worsens after he finds himself locked inside the bathroom with a mysterious figure (J.K. Simmons) speaking to him from an adjacent stall. As Wes tries to escape, he finds himself an unwilling player in a situation bigger and more terrible than he could possibly imagine…

The latest feature film from celebrated director, podcaster, and academic Rebekah McKendry (All The Creatures Were Stirring, co-writer of the upcoming Bring It On: Cheer or Die) film heads to Shudder hot off of its widely-praised world premiere at the Fantasia International Film Festival.

With the majority of the film taking place in a rest stop bathroom, Glorious is an intimate indie horror full of twists and unimaginable turns that boasts one of the most jaw-dropping roles of Simmons’ career. Psychedelic, comedic, overwhelmingly messy, and surprisingly emotionally, Glorious has all the makings of a future cult hit. 

Glorious speaks to my adoration of Lovecraft, gore, absurdist humor, philosophy, and the type of transgressive movies that leave you thinking I can’t believe I just saw that,” says McKendry. “It is a wild mix of horror, humor, and heady moralistic concepts about our own existential realizations of who we really are, forcing each of us to stare into our personal abyss. And sometimes, the abyss stares back… and maybe has a favor to ask.”

Glorious is now streaming exclusively on Shudder
