Ever since news first dropped that Shudder original series, Deadwax was officially in the works, genre fans everywhere have been waiting for official word on when they could expect it to premiere. A few days ago, the horror network finally confirmed an official release date via its verified Twitter account – November 15th. It was further announced that all eight episodes would be released at the same time, much to the delight of dedicated binge-watchers.

The plotline of the series follows the misadventures of professional vinyl curator, Etta Pryce (expertly played by Hannah Gross of Mindhunter fame). One day, Etta receives a special request from a client for an ultra-rare record, one of only three copies left in the world. However, the record in question turns out to be more than just hard to come by. It’s also potentially deadly, as anyone who listens to it is marked for death. When police uncover links between the record and a recent suspicious death, Etta decides to investigate further.

In addition to Hannah Gross as Etta, the cast of Deadwax also includes Ted Raimi (Ash vs Evil Dead). The series is directed by Graham Reznick, the talented sound designer from such productions as The House of the Devil and The Sacrament. Prepare to enjoy a treat peppered with gory 80’s-esque moments, a 70’s-inspired throwback score, and a pared down but powerful production.

Since Deadwax is a short-form series, each episode is around 15 minutes long, so the series in its entirety consists of about two hours of material. Early feedback from an initial viewing at this year’s Fantastic Fest in Austin praised the new show for its razor sharp focus, forbidding tone, and intriguing storyline. Check it out for yourself starting November 15th, available only on Shudder!
