Shudder Adds Mosquito State To Its Summer Of Chills Series
Shudder is bringing the scary this summer, as they have added festival darling Mosquito State to the line-up of films debuting as part of the initiative. Said Craig Engler, general manager of Shudder, "Mosquito State is a masterful allegory for the 2007 financial crisis – Wall Street meets The Fly – and serves as the perfect ending to Shudder's 'Summer of Chills.' Filip Jan Rymsza is very much in command of the ominous, building psycho-horror throughout the film, and we cannot wait for our audience to experience it." The film joins over a line-up of films debuting new on Shudder every week from June through August.
Mosquito State Has Bugs. Why Did It Have To Be Bugs?
In Mosquito State, isolated in his austere penthouse overlooking Central Park, obsessive Wall Street data analyst Richard Boca (Beau Knapp) sees ominous patterns: His computer models are behaving erratically, as are the swarms of mosquitos breeding in his apartment, an infestation that attends his psychological meltdown. "After an amazing festival run, I'm excited to share Mosquito State with Shudder's passionate, ever-growing fanbase," said director and co-writer Filip Jan Rymsza.
The film was awarded the Bisato d'Oro for Best Cinematography at the Venice Film Festival, and ow will join films like Caveat, Superdeep, An Unquiet Grave, Vicious Fun, Son, The Call, Kandisha, The Boy Behind The Door, Teddy, Bleed With Me, Jakob's Wife, and George A Romero's The Amusement Park in the Summer of Chills Shudder line-up. With how strong the offerings have been from the horror streamer as of late, these are all must-watches. If you are a horror fan and are NOT subscribed to Shudder yet, you really need to be by next week when we enter the first couple weeks of this event and the Romero film debuts. Go here to sign up.
