She Will: IFC Midnight, Shudder acquire film executive produced by Dario Argento

Last Updated on February 8, 2022

Back in September, it was announced that legendary genre filmmaker Dario Argento was putting his name on Charlotte Colbert’s feature directorial debut She Will as an executive producer. Now Variety has revealed that we’re getting close to having our chance to watch this Argento-approved horror film, as it has secured a multi-territory distribution deal with IFC Midnight and the Shudder streaming service.

IFC Midnight will be giving She Will a theatrical and VOD release in North America sometime in 2022, while Shudder will be taking the first streaming window in North America, Australia, New Zealand, and Latin America.

Written by Colbert and Kitty Percy, the film explores the story of 

Veronica Ghent (Alice Krige) who after a double mastectomy, goes to a healing retreat in rural Scotland with her young nurse Desi (Kota Eberhardt).  She discovers that the process of such surgery opens up questions about her very existence, leading her to start to question and confront past traumas. The two develop an unlikely bond as mysterious forces give Veronica the power to enact revenge within her dreams.

Alice Krige (Ghost Story), Kota Eberhardt (X-Men: Dark Phoenix), Malcolm McDowell (Rob Zombie’s Halloween), and Rupert Everett (Cemetery Man) star. The film was produced by Jessica Malik and Bob Last, with Edward R. Pressman, Sam Pressman, Ed Clarke, Sam Cryer, Hannah Leader, Thorsten Schumacher, Sara Woodhatch, and Argento serving as executive producers. Argento described the film as “an excursion into the world of witchery, madness, dreams, which together create an intoxicating atmosphere.”

IFC Films’ Arianna Bocco had this to say about the distribution deal:

Charlotte Colbert has brought us an inventive and provocative directorial debut with She Will. The film exudes a timeliness with an evocative feminist critique that singles her out as one of the genre’s exciting new voices to contend with. We are thrilled to welcome her into the IFC Midnight family.”

Shudder’s Craig Engler added:

Charlotte Colbert has crafted an assured and mesmerizing debut feature with She Will, a wickedly smart and socially relevant horror with exceptional performances from its outstanding cast. We can’t wait to share its witchy wonders with Shudder members around the world.”

We’ll let you know when specific release dates are revealed.
