Universal Buys, Sets April Release for Blumhouse Horror-Thriller ‘Cybernatural’

Universal Pictures has acquired horror-thriller “Cybernatural” and has set an April 10 release date.

The film, unfolds over a teen girl’s computer screen as she and her friends are stalked by an unseen figure who seeks vengeance for a shaming video that led a bully to kill herself a year prior.

Universal executives bought “Cybernatural” after a test screening in Montreal. WME Global brokered the deal on behalf of the filmmakers.

The film was developed and conceived by Timur Bekmambetov and directed by Levan Gabriadze from a script by Nelson Greaves. Producers are Bekmambetov and Greaves, as well as Jason Blum for Blumhouse Productions.

Blum, who developed the low-budget “Paranormal Activity,” “Purge” and “Insidious” franchises, signed a 10-year first-look deal with Universal this summer.

“Cybernatural” is the fourth title set for April 10 along with Fox’s romancer “The Longest Ride,” TWC’s animated “Underdogs” and Paramount’s Pierce Brosnan action-fantasy “The Moon and the Sun.”
