The startling festival favorite is hitting the scream streamer next month.

VIOLATION, which won raves (including ours) at the Toronto International Film Festival and Sundance, and next plays SXSW, will be available exclusively on Shudder March 25. Written, produced and directed by Madeleine Sims-Fewer and Dusty Mancinelli, it stars Sims-Fewer, Anna Maguire, Jesse LaVercombe and Obi Abili. The synopsis: “With her marriage about to implode, Miriam [Sims-Fewer] returns to her hometown to seek solace in the comfort of her younger sister [Maguire] and brother-in-law [LaVercombe]. But one evening a tiny slip in judgement leads to a catastrophic betrayal, leaving Miriam shocked, reeling, and furious. Believing her only recourse is to exact revenge, Miriam takes extreme action, but the price of retribution is high, and she is not prepared for the toll it takes as she begins to emotionally and psychologically unravel.”
