The latest stars headed to Shudder include Stephanie Beatriz and Paul Wesley.

The duo will lead the Shudder original film History of Evil. The horror-thriller follows a family on the run from a corrupt state that takes refuge in a safe house with an evil past – a terrifying last stop on a near-future Underground Railroad.

“We are thrilled to be working with XYZ and Two & Two Pictures as we continue to spotlight new and emerging storytellers within this genre, and Bo’s thrilling film debut is no exception,” said Emily Gotto, VP of Global Acquisitions and Co-Productions for Shudder. “We are excited to have such talents as Stephanie and Paul on board to bring these dynamic characters to life and look forward to sharing the film with Shudder members.” 

Beatriz is best known for her role as Detective Rosa Diaz in the NBC comedy Brooklyn Nine-Nine. However, the actress has demonstrated a wide range of talents. She recently voiced the lead character in Disney’s animated family flick Encanto. She also recently wrapped a successful stage run in London’s West End in 2:22: A Ghost Story.

Wesley is best known for his role as Stefan Salvatore in The Vampire Diaries. His additional credits include Before I Disappear, Peaceful Warrior, and Tell Me A Story.

History of Evil comes from Iranian-American writer-director Bo Mirhosseni. XYZ Films, Two & Two Pictures, and Jake Siegel produce. Beatriz and Wesley both executive produce as well as star in the film.

History of Evil will stream exclusively on Shudder in North America, the UK, Ireland, Australia, and New Zealand.
