A lot of movies had to compromise when the COVID-19 pandemic happened, effectively shutting down the theater industry. While studios have kept their heavy hitters in the release date slot (Black Widow, Wonder Woman 1984, Tenet, and Dune to name a few), most of the smaller films have been moved to PVOD, at least here in the US. Another film to join this is the horror thriller Run, which stars Sarah Paulson as a controlling mother who has has raised her wheelchair-bound daughter (Played by Kiera Allen) in total isolation, but once the teen begins to grasp the unsettling secrets around her, it sets off a chain of events that see the girl in the fight of her life.
Originally, the film was set to hit theaters May 8th, but now the film will end up on Hulu who have acquired the film's distribution rights. No official release date on the streaming service has been announced as of yet. The film will still release theatrically in select international markets.
Run is directed by Aneesh Chaganty (Who co-wrote the film with Sev Ohanian). The directing/writing duo gained attention last year with the 2018 John Cho-starring thriller Searching. Run is noted for being the first major thriller since 1948’s The Sign of the Ram to star an actor who is actually wheelchair bound in real-life. Stay tuned!
