Renowned actress Alicia Silverstone turns heads with a gripping performance in the upcoming horror film, “Perpetrator.” From the creative mind of filmmaker Jennifer Reeder, known for her chilling chapter “Holy Hell” in “V/H/S/94,” and the eerie feature “Night’s End,” “Perpetrator” poses the question: can one teenager stoke or still the chaos in an entire town?
The narrative focus of “Perpetrator” is Jonny, a young woman juggling a cluster of personal issues. Her life takes a twisty turn when she reunites with her Aunt, setting into motion a series of life-altering events. The film is produced under Reeder’s capable direction, offering yet another fresh take within the spooky genre.
In a crucial role, Alicia Silverstone brings to life the character of the estranged Aunt who reconnects with her troubled niece – Jonny. Her powerful performance in the film earned praises from critics, including The Playlist’s Anna Bogutskaya, who noted the actress’s commitment to the world Reeder has constructed. The ensemble cast of the film includes notable names like Kiah McKirnan, Christopher Lowell, Melanie Liburd, and Ireon Roach.
The official synopsis of the film discloses an intriguing storyline: “Reckless teenager, Jonny Baptiste (Kiah McKirnan), is sent to live with her estranged Aunt Hildie (Alicia Silverstone). On turning 18, she undergoes a radical transformation due to a family spell known as Forevering. When Jonny discovers that teen girls are disappearing from her new school, she, infused with mythical beastliness, decides to track down the Perpetrator.”
“Perpetrator” adds an unexpected thrill to the process of growing up. The film is set to premiere on the horror specialized streaming service, Shudder, and will also be available in select theaters from 1st September. Fans are eagerly waiting to catch the spine-tingling trailer!
