“House of Spoils” promises to be a thrilling experience unlike any other. Written and directed by the incredible duo of Bridget Savage Cole (Blow The Man Down) and Danielle Krudy (Blow The Man Down, Black Swan), the movie is described as a “tense, psychological, and sensuous thriller that will leave hearts pounding and mouths watering.”
The movie follows the story of an ambitious chef (DeBose) who opens her first restaurant — a farm-to-table affair on a remote estate — where she battles kitchen chaos, a dubious investor, and crushing self-doubt. But the pressure heats up thanks to the powerful spirit of the estate’s previous owner, who threatens to sabotage her at every turn.
“Since ‘Blow the Man Down,’ we have been huge fans of Bridget and Danielle’s unique filmmaking voice and knew we needed to be a part of whatever they wanted to do next,” said Julie Rapaport, Head of Movies at Amazon Studios, in a statement. “Pairing their thrilling script with Ariana’s incredible talent is a dream come true, and we could not be more excited to bring this story to the screen and to our customers around the world.”
Chris McCumber, President of Blumhouse Television, is also “excited to see Ariana’s fresh, bold and spirited energy that won her an Oscar in a role that is completely different.”
“And with the gifted filmmaking team of Bridget and Danielle, the talent in front of and behind the camera is exceptional,” he added.
