The new trailer dropped today for the latest horror movie to be based on a creepy internet phenomenon: ‘Elevator Game.’ Directed by Rebekah McKendry (‘Glorious’) this Shudder exclusive release looks to be a mean and bloody tale of some kids who make the ill fated decision to try the latest online trend in ghost summoning. If this concept caught your eye when it was first going around the film should definitely be on your list for the spooky season.
‘Elevator Game’ is written by Travis Seppala (‘Captive’) and the cast includes: Gino Anania, Verity Marks, Alec Carlos, Nazariy Demkowicz, Madison MacIsaac, Liam Stewart-Kanigan, Megan Best. We have the trailer and the newly released poster for you below!
Based on the online phenomenon of the same name, ‘Elevator Game’ follows socially awkward teenager Ryan, who ingratiates himself into a group of recent high school graduates that run an online web series debunking urban legends. But Ryan has a secret: His sister disappeared months earlier, and he believes they – and a dangerous online challenge called ‘The Elevator Game’ – were responsible. To play the game, you must ride the elevator in a specific sequence, invoking a supernatural creature called ‘The 5th Floor Woman’. In an attempt to gain more information as to the whereabouts of his sister, Ryan persuades the group to play the game once more, and risk unleashing the most fearsome consequences imaginable.
‘Elevator Game’ will stream exclusively on Shudder starting September 15th, 2023.
