Up above you can see a brand new image from IFC Midnight and Shudder’s She Will, a horror movie starring Alice Krige (Gretel & Hansel) that’s headed our way later this summer.
She Will, we’ve learned, comes to select theaters and Digital on July 15, 2022.
Meagan Navarro reviewed the film, writing that “She Will casts a beguiling spell of retribution,” further noting, “those that don’t mind a horror adjacent, artful take on witchcraft will find themselves in for a breathtaking visual feast set deep within the Highlands.”
She Will is the directorial debut of Charlotte Colbert and stars Alice Krige, who played the witch in Osgood Perkins’ Gretel & Hansel for Orion Pictures, as “Veronica Ghent, who after a double mastectomy, goes to a healing retreat in rural Scotland with her young nurse Desi (Kota Eberhardt). There 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 exact revenge within her dreams.”
Eberhardt appeared in X-Men: Dark Phoenix, and co-stars alongside Malcolm McDowell (A Clockwork Orange, Rob Zombie’s Halloween), Rupert Everett (Dark City, The Happy Prince), Jon McCrea (Cruella) and Amy Manson (The Nevers).
“The story of She Will has themes I’ve always been interested in within my practice and within my life”, director Colbert told Variety in the initial announcement. “How trauma blurs our experience of reality and time, how nature holds so much solace, how we all carry within us the muscle memory of those who came before and those who will come after, how the infinitely small, like a cell, contains the same patterns as the universe. How meaning and perspective and reality and time are all such fragile constructs that can break at any time. The genre of psychological horror seems to allow more artistic freedom than drama. It also at its heart fittingly captures those existential feelings.”
