Emrhys Cooper’s ‘The Shuroo Process’ Opens in Theaters and On Demand November 24

Emrhys Cooper’s The Shuroo Process has some major horror alums involved. Zachary Quinto (NOS4A2) serves as executive producer and Fiona Dourif (Child’s Play franchise) headlines the cast. Her father, Brad Dourif (Child’s Play franchise), and Samantha Robinson (The Love Witch, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood) are featured in supporting roles as well.

From the official press release:

When a NYC journalist’s life crashes and burns, she becomes infatuated with a celebrity guru, and begins a wild journey of love and grand larceny. Running from her past, Parker Schafer, hits rock bottom. Her longtime boyfriend dumps her and returns to his ex-wife. In a drug fueled downward spiral, she blows up her career and reputation in a spectacular act of self-sabotage, giving her best friend and boss no choice but to fire her. With nothing to lose, Parker reluctantly tries a remote wellness retreat with the famed Guru Shuroo. Over three days, a diverse group of unlikely characters are brought together through Shuroo’s process: digital detox, meditation, gas lighting, mescaline trips… fraud! However, the spell soon lifts and Parker uncovers a story that will expose Shuroo. The scoop could put her back on top! But will she find redemption? THE SHUROO PROCESS explores the dangers of the cultish self-help industry and what it’s like to fall prey to its promises of transformation.

About Kevin Scott

Parents who were not film savvy and completely unprepared for choosing child appropriate viewing material were the catalyst that fueled my lifelong love affair with horror, exploitation, blaxploitation, low budget action, and pretty much anything that had to be turned off when my grandparents visited. I turned out okay for the most part, so how bad could all these films actually be?
