They Live in the Grey: Vang Brothers film acquired by Shudder

The Shudder service has acquired the worldwide rights to They Live in the Grey, written and directed by Burlee and Abel Vang (Bedeviled), and they intend to start streaming the film in North America, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia, and New Zealand sometime in early 2022. Vertical Entertainment will be presenting the film to potential distributors in other territories at the American Film Market.

This supernatural horror movie stars Michelle Krusiec (Hollywood) as Claire,

who, while investigating a child abuse case, discovers that the family is being tormented by a supernatural entity. In order to save the family, she must confront her own fears and use her emerging clairvoyance to stop the malevolent force.

Krusiec is joined in the cast by Ken Kirby (Good Trouble), Ellen Wroe (For All Mankind), and Madelyn Grace (Don’t Breathe 2).

A Standoff Pictures Production, in association with Whiskey Stream Films, They Live in the Grey was produced by Stephen Stanley and the Vang Brothers.

Shudder’s Craig Engler had this to say about the movie:

The Vang Brothers have crafted a stylish, scary chiller, easily one of the year’s most frightening films, led by a gripping central performance from Michelle Krusiec as Claire. We’re thrilled to invite Shudder members to see through Claire’s eyes and peer into that fascinating and haunting space between life and death.”

The Vang Brothers added:

Most horror films with Asian leads are foreign films. We’re proud and excited to tell an Asian-American horror story – something you don’t often see. We can’t imagine a better partner than Shudder to help us bring this Asian-American narrative to the horror genre.”

A few images of Krusiec in They Live in the Grey can be seen below. The movie sounds interesting to me and I have a Shudder subscription, so I’ll probably be checking it out sometime next year.
