Jenn Wexler Turned Heads With The Ranger on Shudder

Director Jenn Wexler previously brought to life the horror film The Ranger which was pretty well received by genre fans upon its release on Shudder. The streamer was eager to get another feature from Wexler on the service when The Sacrifice Game came along.

“We loved The Ranger and are thrilled to be working with Jenn and her team to bring her new film, The Sacrifice Game, to life. Jenn’s film promises to be a wild and thrilling ride that offers a fresh take on timeless horror themes. We can’t wait to share it with our members,” said Shudder General Manager Craig Engler in a statement.

Producers Philip Kalin-Hajdu and Albert Melamed added, “After years working in genre, it is a highlight to be making a Shudder original with this film. Wexler’s thrilling vision pulled us in from the start. We have never seen Mena Massoud and Olivia Scott Welch in roles like these and we can’t wait to share it with the world. We are grateful to be working with Shudder and RSM.”

“I am extremely excited to be working with this incredible cast and to be partnering again with Shudder and with RSM. The Sacrifice Game is my tribute to the beauty and boldness of ‘70s horror, anchored in an unlikely friendship between outsiders,” Jenn Wexler said.

The Sacrifice Game doesn’t yet have an official release date but principal photography will begin on May 9, 2022. You can find out more about Shudder at
