Shudder released today the trailer and key art for the new indie thriller film Influencer, from Shudder alumnus, writer/director Kurtis David Harder (Harpoon, Superhost, V/H/S/94).
Madison is a popular social media influencer who’s having a lonely and uneventful trip in Thailand despite what she tells her followers on Instagram. While reflecting on her boyfriend canceling the trip, she meets CW, a fearless and enigmatic traveler who offers to take her to some of the most Instagram-worthy locations. Together they share authentic meals and drinks with locals, discussing the differences between Madison’s online presence and CW’s lack of one. After showing Madison all of the amazing sights, things take a different turn when CW brings her to a surprise location—a deserted island that is completely off the grid.
Watch the trailer:
Emily Tennant, Cassandra Naud, Sara Canning, and Rory J. Saper star in the film.
Harder produced the film with co-writer Tesh Guttikond, as well as Brandon Christensen, Jack Campbell, and Micah Henry. The film was shot on location in Thailand.
Influencer comes to Shudder and AMC+ on May 26, 2023.
