Shook Synopsis & Poster

Johnson (Sleepless), Stephanie Simbari (Here and Now) , and Grant Rosenmeyer (Crazy Ex-Girlfriend). Directed by Jennifer Harrington (Housekeeping)."
There has been a slew of these new types of found footage films these last couple of years, but this one looks like it actually may be pretty good. It for sure is going to have something to say about influencer culture and internet bullying, so hopefully, they do not blow it with the messaging. Shudder originals have been super quality these last few months, and there is no reason to think that this one is going to be any different. Shook will debut on the horror streaming service next week on February 18th. If you are not subscribed to Shudder already, you can do so right here.
