Press release:
“Shudder, AMC Networks’ premium streaming service for horror, thriller and the supernatural, has announced that its newest Shudder Original Film, horror feature A Wounded Fawn, will have its world premiere at the 2022 Tribeca Festival. Shudder will release the film, which is written and directed by Travis Stevens (Girl on the Third Floor; Jakob’s Wife), in North America, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia and New Zealand in late 2022.

“We’re thrilled the Tribeca Festival has recognized Travis Stevens’ distinct and visually arresting nightmare,” said Shudder general manager Craig Engler. “Shudder members are in for a viewing experience that is equal parts gripping, unexpected and surprisingly funny.”

Added Stevens, “As the horror genre continues to push forward in fun directions, it’s only possible with the imagination and support of companies like Shudder. Their belief in this project and in the artists making it has been wonderful. We’re looking forward to sharing this wild film with audiences at Tribeca and around the world.”

Inspired by surrealist art and Greek mythology, A Wounded Fawn follows the story of Meredith Tanning, a local museum curator who is dipping her toe back into the dating pool, only to be targeted by a charming serial killer. When a fateful romantic getaway between the two becomes a tense game of cat and mouse, both must confront the madness within him.”

“He [Travis Stevens] pulls out all the aesthetic and thematic stops for this horror adventure into the dark corners of a killer’s warped mind. The use of visually stunning tableaux are often their own works of art in of themselves. The fact they serve a bigger narrative purpose speaks to the assuredness of the creative minds behind the film.” Britflicks

” …Travis Stevens unleashes a cinematic reckoning with A Wounded Fawn that truly feels like unlike anything I’ve seen this year thus far, even if it explores some thematic elements that we’ve seen in other films that tackle similar topics. Rubens delivers his greatest performance to date in Fawn and I love how this story does a fantastic job of subverting expectations at every turn and challenges viewers’ perceptions of depictions of violence against women in extremely surprising ways.” 4/5 Daily Dead

“The tone is rambunctious, marked by Stevens’ and co-writer Nathan Faudree’s playfulness, and made more impactful by committed performances, intoxicating cinematography (by Ksusha Genenfeld), a thumping score (composed by Vaaal), beautiful costume/set design, and a pacey edit (montage by Travis Stevens and Zach Clark). The vision is clear, concise, and fortunately for horror fans; it is blood-soaked.” Hammer to Nail
