Spiral, an atmospheric horror film set in 1995, headlines Jeffrey Bowyer-Chapman (Canada’s Drag Race; UnReal) and Ari Cohen (It) as couple Malik and Aaron.

Ten years after a traumatic incident, Malik is still haunted by his past. To start afresh, he and Aaron, with Aaron’s daughter Kayla, move to a small town. Initially, they are warmly greeted by the town’s residents, but soon Malik senses that something is wrong. His discomfort escalates when his new house is vandalized, and he begins having visions of hooded figures that are lurking in the dark. As Malik investigates the town’s history and inhabitants, he finds himself tangled in a spiral of ominous secrets.

Following in the footsteps of contemporary horror films such as Jordan Peele’s Get Out and Us, Spiral is a suspenseful tale that comments on the deeply rooted prejudices inherent in a small town and the sinister traditions that accompany them.
