Written by Brett Glassberg, Andre Evrenos and Clay Shirley, DERELICTS introduces audiences to a dysfunctional family on Thanksgiving Day. From the over-sexed grandparents to the squabbling siblings and an emotionless husband who seems uninterested in touching his wife – all appears normal for this particular household. That is until a gang of vicious vagrants invades their home, not only to cause havoc, pain, and death, but also laying bare everyone’s faults and inhumanity while exposing some deeper family secrets along the way.
Produced by Udoy Rahim and co-produced by Mark Newton and Matt Stryker, DERELICTS premiered at the Telluride Horror Show Film Festival in 2017. During its festival run the film received praise from critics, including Modern Horrors who referred to the film as “A visual feast of sex, violence and insanity” and Killer Horror Critic who stated, “DERELICTS is the Thanksgiving horror film to end all Thanksgiving horror films.”
Thanks to Terror Films, fans will have an opportunity to watch DERELICTS just in time for the Thanksgiving holiday. The film will premiere on the Kings of Horror channel Friday, November 13th which will include a live chat with the filmmakers and some of the cast. The film will remain on the channel for a 6-week exclusive window before hitting multiple digital platforms beginning Christmas Day.
