THE SEED (2021) Preview of sci-fi comedy horror acquired by Shudder



The Seed is a 2021 British sci-fi comedy horror film about a girls weekend away in the Mojave desert that turns into a nightmare. The fun girlie getaway soon becomes a harrowing experience involving alien invasion, horror and untimely death.

Written and directed by Sam Walker (shorts: Bite Horse; Pool Shark; Duck Children), making his feature debut. Produced by Kathleen Debrincat (line producer), Chris Hardman, Matt Hookings and James Norrie.

The Camelot Films-Hardman Pictures production stars Lucy Martin (Vikings TV series), Sophie Vavasseur (Exorcismus; Resident Evil: Apocalypse), Chelsea Edge (End of Term; Dead in October; I Hate Suzie), Anthony Edridge, Shirley Barchou Pisani and Jamie Wittebrood.



Lifelong friends Deidre (Lucy Martin), Heather (Sophie Vavasseur), and Charlotte (Chelsea Edge) are finally getting some time away together, using the upcoming meteor shower to gather more followers for their social media channels.


However, what begins as a girls’ getaway in the Mojave Desert descends into a battle for survival with the arrival of an invasive alien force whose air of mystery soon proves to be alluring and irresistible to them. Before long the situation devolves into a battle to the death, where the stakes have galaxy-wide implications…



Ahead of its premiere at Beyond Fest in Los Angeles on October 5, 2021, The Seed has been acquired by Shudder and will be available for streaming in North America, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia and New Zealand in early 2022.

Craig Engler, general manager of Shudder said: “Sam Walker’s stunning feature debut blends sci-fi, body horror and pitch-black comedy into one stylish and scary package. We are thrilled to plant The Seed in the minds of Shudder members.”
