The Horror Collective’s Summoning Sylvia is set to premiere on Shudder on April 1st. A favorite among fans and critics alike, it has received a 100% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, won a Casting Society award, and was nominated for a GLAAD Media Award for Outstanding Film.

Summoning Sylvia was directed by Wesley Taylor (a Broadway veteran known for Rock of Ages and The Addams Family) and Alex Wyse (returning to Broadway this season in Good Night Oscar), making their directorial debuts, which they also wrote together.

The directors commented:

Ultimately a celebration of queer friendship, the film explores the assumptions we make about each other, which can lead to some super silly scary spooky shit!

Shaked Berenson, CEO of Entertainment Squad, the parent company behind The Horror Collective, remarked:

We remain dedicated to introducing fresh voices to the horror community on Shudder.

The cast includes Travis Coles (Dollhouse), Frankie Grande (Spree), Michael Urie (Ugly Betty), Troy Iwata (Dash & Lily), Noah Ricketts (American Gods), Nicholas Logan (I Care a Lot), Tony-nominee Veanne Cox, Camden Garcia (Station 19) and Sean Grandillo (Scream: The TV Series).

Other titles from The Horror Collective on Shudder include the action-comedy Bloody Hell, the Shudder Original Slaxx, the anthology series Etheria, and the Daytime Emmy-nominated limited series Doomsday.
