Ryan Kwanten (True Blood) and Oscar winner J.K. Simmons (Whiplash) team up for the Lovecraftian horror Glorious. The feature lands an exclusive release on Shudder August 18 and has its world premiere at Fantasia Film Festival.

Directed by Rebekah McKendry (All The Creatures Were Stirring, Bring It On: Cheer or Die), Glorious premieres at Fantasia Film Festival on July 21.

The narrative centers on Wes (Ryan Kwanten), a dude who is trying to overcome a bad breakup. Locked insided a bathroom at a rest stop with a mysterious figure (J.K. Simmons) in the next stall, Wes tries to himself from the dangerous situation.

Glorious speaks to my adoration of Lovecraft, gore, absurdist humor, philosophy, and the type of transgressive movies that leave you thinking I can’t believe I just saw that,” says McKendry. “It is a wild mix of horror, humor, and heady moralistic concepts about our own existential realizations of who we really are, forcing each of us to stare into our personal abyss. And sometimes, the abyss stares back… and maybe has a favor to ask.”
