JK Simmons and Ryan Kwanten Star in Bathroom Horror Movie

I’m not surprised there’s a horror movie in the works that takes place in a rest area and is called Glorious – taking its name, I guess, from the concept of rest stop bathroom gloryholes. We live in a world where there’s a horror movie called Amityville vibrator. I’m surprised, though, that this off-the-peg bathroom horror flick is getting to star Ryan Kwanten (true blood) and Oscar winner JK Simmons (Whiplash). And rather than being a down-to-earth story about gloryhole issues, it’s actually a supernatural horror story.

Directed by Rebekah McKendry (All the creatures stirred) from a screenplay by Todd Rigney, Joshua Hull and David Ian McKendry, Glorious is about

a young man (Kwanten) spiraling out of control after a bad breakup. His situation worsens after he finds himself locked in a rest area with a mysterious figure (Simmons) talking to him from an adjacent cabin. As he tries to escape, he realizes he is an unwitting player in a bigger situation than he could have imagined.

Details about the supernatural force at work in this rest area have not been revealed.

Deadline reports that filming on Glorious is almost finished already. The film is produced by Bob Portal and Inderpal Singh of AMP, Joe Wicker and Morgan Peter Brown of Fallback Plan Productions, Jason Scott Goldberg and Christian Armogida. It is a collaboration between Fallback Plan and Eyevox Entertainment. Eyevox’s Rick Moore is executive producing alongside AMP’s James Norrie and Nina Kolokouri, Barbara Crampton, Mark Cartier, Gaba Gavi, Kevin Kale and Kwanten. Jessica Taylor is associate producer.

Norrie promised that “Glorious is so deliciously crazy that people will be talking about it for years. The director added:Glorious is about my love of cosmic horror, gore, absurd humor, philosophy, and the kind of transgressive films that leave you thinking “I can’t believe I just saw this”.

Hopefully it won’t be long before we get a chance to see it.
