Netflix Buys Mike Flanagan’s Horror-Thriller ‘Hush’ Ahead of SXSW Premiere

Netflix has acquired worldwide streaming rights to Mike Flanagan’s “Hush,” starring John Gallagher Jr., Kate Siegel, Michael Trucco and Samantha Sloyan.

Hush” will have its world premiere at South by Southwest on Saturday. It will be available globally on Netflix beginning April 8.

Siegel wrote the script with Flanagan. Intrepid Pictures’ Trevor Macy and Blumhouse Productions’ Jason Blum produced the film, with Michael J. Fourticq Sr., Jeanette Brill, Kate Lumpkin and Couper Samuelson exec producing.

Siegel stars as an author who lost her hearing as a teenager, living a life of isolation in which she’s fully retreated into her now-silent world. When the masked face of a psychotic killer appears in the window of her secluded home, she must push herself beyond her mental and physical limits in order to survive the night.

“ ‘Hush’ is a great example of what happens when you give an incredible filmmaker like Mike Flanagan creative freedom to tell a fun and original scary story,” said Blum. “We had a great time continuing our relationship with Mike and Intrepid and are psyched to share Mike’s movie with genre lovers all over the world on Netflix.”

Flanagan wrote and directed “Oculus” for Macy’s Intrepid, which Blumhouse acquired at the 2013 Toronto Film Festival, and co-wrote and is directing Blumhouse’s “Ouija 2.”
