After months of delays, an upcoming horror thriller about a home-schooled teen and her disturbed mother has been acquired by Hulu for streaming distribution.
Starring Sara Paulson, "Run" built up considerable buzz ahead of a planned release on May 8, when Lionsgate intended the film to coincide with Mother's Day.
As a result of the COVID-19 crisis, plans for the movie's debut became a bit murky as Lionsgate sought to sell the distribution rights.
Director Aneesh Chaganty and co-writer Sev Ohanian are known for taking interesting risks and pushing the boundaries of the film industry.
With "Run," the pair are behind the first thriller to star a wheelchair-using actor (Kiera Allen, who plays Paulson's daughter) since the 1948 film "The Sign of the Ram."
The movie centers around a mother's overbearing control of her daughter's life, prompting the discovery of a sinister secret that explains the unhinged behavior.
A release date for "Run" has not yet been announced, but it now becomes part of a growing list of Hulu content that has generated major interest from viewers.
