Shudder Acquires Danish Horror-Romance ‘ATTACHMENT’

Horror streaming service Shudder sends word they’ve acquired Gabriel Bier Gislason’s ATTACHMENT. The Danish horror romance will stream exclusively on Shudder in North America, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia and New Zealand.

Read on for the details!



ATTACHMENT is a horror romance about love at first sight, steeped in Jewish folklore. Maja, a Danish has-been actress falls in love with Leah, a young, Jewish academic from London. But when Leah suffers a mysterious seizure, leading to a debilitating injury, Maja fears their whirlwind romance might be cut short – and decides to follow Leah back to her home in the Hasidic area of Stamford Hill, London. There, she meets her new downstairs neighbor: Leah’s mother, Chana.

An overbearing and secretive woman, Chana seems resistant to all of Maja’s attempts to win her over. And as Maja begins to notice strange occurrences in the building, she begins to suspect that Chana’s secrets could be much darker that first anticipated – and that the woman she loves might be carrying the biggest secret of all.

Gabriel Bier Gislason wrote and directed the film. It stars Josephine Park, Ellie Kendrick, Sofie Gråbøl, and David Dencik.


The press release doesn’t mention a street date, but of course, we’ll let you know as soon as we know.
