The upcoming Shudder release, The Apology looks to combine a lot of slasher goodness with Christmas-set horror. Of course, we are really excited about any and all holiday horror and this one stars Anna Gunn and Janeane Garofalo. So, we are already very much on board with this psychological thriller.
The synopsis for The Apology goes like this:
“Twenty years after the disappearance of her daughter, recovering alcoholic Darlene Hagen (Anna Gunn) is preparing to host her family’s Christmas celebration with her best friend Gretchen (Janeane Garofalo). Late Christmas Eve, Darlene’s estranged ex-brother-in-law, Jack (Linus Roache) arrives unannounced, bearing nostalgic gifts and a heavy secret. Soon, Darlene finds herself caught between reason and ruthless instinct. Trapped together by a dangerous storm, a battle of wits escalates to a violent game of revenge.“
The Apology stars Anna Gunn, Linus Roache and Janeane Garofalo in a film directed by Alison Star Locke.
The Apology arrives in theaters and on Shudder beginning December 16.
