In celebration of DREAD’s upcoming supernatural release, Queen of Spades (on VOD June 11th), we’ve crafted a #MonthOfDread featuring spooky specters! Ghost or demonic entities are the main villains in each film we’ll be highlighting over the next 30 days!
Check out the trailer and supernatural synopsis for Queen of Spades below.
According to legend, an ominous entity known as the Queen of Spades can be summoned by performing an ancient ritual. Those brave enough draw a door and a staircase on a mirror, in darkness, and say her name three times. What happens next you must experience to believe. Four teenagers decide to summon the Queen of Spades as a joke. But they could never imagine the horrors this innocent prank has condemned them and their loved ones to. The evil entity won’t stop until she gets their souls.
Queen of Spades is directed by Patrick White from a screenplay he co-wrote with John Ainslie and based on a story by Svyatoslav Podgaevskiy; the film stars Ava Preston, Daniel Kash, Kaelen Ohm, Eric Osborne, Jamie Bloch, Nabil Rajo, and Krista Marchand.
Ask yourself: Are you a horror fan who lives every day like it’s Halloween? Do you have the gumption and the stamina to consume a new horror movie every day for an entire year? If so, feast your eyes on June’s 30-day horror challenge below. Let us know you’re participating by using the hashtag #YearOfDread2021 on Social Media!
