‘Lucky’ Trailer: Facing a Masked Killer Every Day in Shudder’s Metaphorical Horror Film


Shudder has dropped the trailer for Lucky, a slasher-esque horror pic that reviews have said serves more as a satire on the non-believed oppression women can experience. 

Brea Grant (After Midnight), who’s also Lucky‘s screenwriter, plays a popular self-help book author who finds herself living in a nightmare as a masked killer, every night, without fail, comes after her. Making things worse: her situation barely seems to be noticed by those around her. Pushed to the limit, she realises that she must take control of the situation if she wants to survive.

Natasha Kermani (Imitation Girl) directs this interesting-looking allegory with a slasher slant. Early reviews are quite promising, suggesting it could be a winner if one enters it with the knowledge that it isn’t a regular stab-em-up.

Lucky will premiere on Shudder Australia, New Zealand, US, Canada, UK, and Ireland on March 4th.

Life takes a sudden turn for May, a popular self-help book author, when she finds herself the target of a mysterious man with murderous intentions. Every night, without fail he comes after her, and every day the people around her barely seem to notice.

With no one to turn to, May is pushed to her limits and must take matters into her own hands to survive and to regain control of her life.

The sophomore feature from Iranian-American filmmaker Natasha Kermani (Imitation Girl), Lucky is written and starring Brea Grant, star of the indie darling After Midnight and writer/director of the critically acclaimed dark comedy 12 Hour Shift.

Home invasion horror by way of a time loop mystery, Lucky is a uniquely nightmarish, darkly funny, and timely slasher, and a thrilling addition to the Final Girl genre. The film stars Grant alongside Dhruv Uday Singh (Good Trouble) and Kausar Mohammed (East of La Brea, What Men Want), and is produced by Patrick Ewald, Chelsea Davenport, and lensed by Julia Swain.

Lucky is an Epic Pictures and Dread Presents production.
