Malaysian filmmaker Dain Said’s horror film Blood Flower (Harum Malam) premiered at Fantastic Fest this year, and Deadline reports that Shudder has now acquired the movie.
According to the site, Shudder will premiere Blood Flower sometime in 2023.
In the film:
“A 16-year-old apprentice faith healer and exorcist is tormented by visions of the dead and spirits from other dimensions. When a malicious spirit begins to wreak havoc around him, the teenaged exorcist is forced to harness his supernatural gifts to save his family and friends.”
Idan Aedan, Bront Palarae, and Remy Ishak star in Blood Flower. The film is produced by Malaysia’s Apparat in collaboration with Skop Productions and D’Ayu Pictures. Dain Said, Nandita Solomon, and Ben Omar wrote the script.
“One of next year’s most frightening films, Blood Flower is a special kind of haunter. We’re thrilled to bring the bold voice of director Dain Said to the service, and to make Blood Flower (Harum Malam) our first Shudder Original from Malaysia,” said Shudder’s Emily Gotto.
