Director Jennifer Reeder’s horror film Perpetrator will be reaching select theatres on September 1st, the same day it will be available to watch through the Shudder streaming service – and today, a full trailer for the film has arrived online! You can watch it in the embed above.
Perpetrator is Reeder’s third collaboration with Shudder, as she previously contributed a segment to the horror anthology V/H/S/94 and directed the horror film Night’s End, both of which were released through Shudder.
Perpetrator has the following synopsis: Jonny Baptiste is a reckless teen sent to live with her estranged Aunt Hildie. On her 18th Birthday, she undergoes a radical metamorphosis. A family spell called Forevering redefines her. When several teen girls go missing at her new school, a mythically feral Jonny goes after the Perpetrator.
Jonny is played by Kiah McKirnan (Mare of Easttown). Christopher Lowell (My Best Friend’s Exorcism), Melanie Liburd (The Idol), and Ireon Roach (Candyman) are also in the cast, and Aunt Hildie is played by Alicia Silverstone (Clueless).
Perpetrator was produced by Gregory Chambet of WTFilms and Derek Bishe of Divide/Conquer. Trevor Groth and Sarah Hong from 30West were executive producers along with Adam Hendricks, Greg Gilreath, Dimitri Stephanides, WTFilms and Emily Gotto from Shudder. Women are particularly well-suited to horror films. We have a strong connection to fear since a young age and can bleed for days without dying. This film takes on the myth that the wild child is the out-of control teen girl. This story gives her agency to embrace her lawlessness.
Perpetrator is dark but feminine, a nuanced noir, a grrrl power take on modern horror.“Chambet has said that the idea for this movie was to was to “walk in the footsteps of powerful female horror references such as Cat People, Carrie,
and Jennifer’s Body.”What did you think of the Perpetrator
