June 15, 2022 // New York, NY – Shudder, AMC Network’s premium streaming service for horror, thriller, and the supernatural, has announced that its latest Shudder Original Film, horror-comedy Who Invited Them from writer/director Duncan Birmingham (Maron, Blunt Talk), will be available exclusively on Shudder in the US, Canada, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia, and New Zealand on Thursday, September 1, 2022. Shudder holds worldwide rights to the film, which made its United States premiere at New Orleans’ Overlook Film Festival earlier this month, and stars Ryan Hansen (Veronica Mars), Melissa Tang (The Kominsky Method), Timothy Granaderos (13 Reasons Why), and Perry Mattfeld (In the Dark).

"Who Invited Them puts a fresh, fun twist on the home invasion genre. It’s darkly comic yet shockingly sinister. We can’t wait for Shudder members to check out the party," said Shudder general manager Craig Engler.

Birmingham adds, "Some of my favorite filmmakers have their films on Shudder and everyone knows horror fans make the best audiences so it’s a real thrill for our dark twisted labor of love to find a home there. I’m very excited to be part of the family."

In Who invited Them, Adam and Margo’s (Hansen, Tang) housewarming party is a success. However, one mysterious couple (Granaderos, Mattfeld) lingers long after all the other guests have left. The uninvited couple reveals themselves to be their wealthy neighbors, Tom and Sasha. But as a single nightcap leads to another, Adam and Margo start to suspect these new friends are actually duplicitous strangers.

The feature is a Shudder Original Production, produced by Mary Pat Bentel (The Midnight Swim, Dark Was the Night). The deal was negotiated by Emily Gotto and Nicholas Lazo on behalf of Shudder and Bentel on behalf of the filmmakers.
