Cronenberg Returns with First Look at The Shrouds

When it comes to body horror, only David Cronenberg’s name is synonymous with the sub-genre, and the acclaimed director has given us a first look into his latest project, The Shrouds.

Originally shared by French magazine Cahiers du Cinéma, the image offers a futuristic look at the cemetery from the film. Deadline previously reported that Vincent Cassel will play Karsh, an innovative businessman and grieving widower, who builds a novel device to connect with the dead inside a burial shroud. This burial tool installed at his own state-of-the-art – though controversial cemetery allows him and his clients to watch their specific departed loved one decompose in real time. Karsh’s revolutionary business is on the verge of breaking into the international mainstream when several graves within his cemetery are vandalized and nearly destroyed, including that of his wife. While he struggles to uncover a clear motive for the attack, the mystery of who wrought this havoc, and why, drive him to reevaluate his business, marriage and fidelity to his late wife’s memory, as well as push him to new beginnings. Sandrine Holt plays a mysterious woman, the wife of a billionaire, who contacts Karsh about a strange project involving her husband.

No release date is available at the current time, but we are hoping to see the film in late 2024.
