New Horror Movie Starring JK Simmons Has 100% Rotten Tomatoes Rating

Horror fans, listen up – a new movie starring Hollywood legend JK Simmons has earned itself a perfect 100 percent score on Rotten Tomatoes. 

Aptly titled Glorious, the horror from director Rebekah McKendry has proved to be a hit among critics after premiering at the ongoing Fantasia Film Festival in Canada.

If you’re wondering what it’s about, the plot centres on a heartbroken man who finds himself trapped in a bathroom of all places as a strange voice tells him he’s the only hope in stopping a terrible event. Check out the teaser trailer below:

Per the official synopsis: “Spiralling out after a bad breakup, Wes ends up at a remote rest stop miles away from civilization. 

“His situation worsens after he finds himself locked inside the bathroom with a mysterious figure speaking to him from an adjacent stall. 

“As Wes tries to escape, he finds himself an unwilling player in a situation bigger and more terrible than he could possibly imagine.”

Alongside Whiplash star Simmons, who’ll be portraying the ‘mysterious figure’, Ryan Kwanten of True Blood fame is playing the lead character Wes. 

As we've said, it’s already earned a whopping 100 percent score on Rotten Tomatoes, with plenty of reviews singing the film’s praises.

Collider writer Chase Hutchinson wrote: “This one is for the sickos among us, myself included, who are looking for a movie about the maniacal madness of the macabre.”

Elsewhere, CBR’s Jon Mendelsohn said: “Glorious is a fun Lovecraftian horror film that is as intelligent as it is horrifying, using its small set and cast to phenomenal effect,” adding that it feels ‘epic’ despite the fact that it takes place in one location. 

One aspect of Glorious that many have commended is the use of practical effects, something McKendry felt passionately about when making the film.

In a conversation with Daily Dead, she explained: “We did, I'd say, 75 percent practical effects. I will always push practical effects as far as I can practically on set, and then do what we have to do in post to really clean up edges.

“I always say I'd rather build the monster suit and then just remove the zipper than have to construct the full monster."

And if that weren’t exciting enough, there’s not long to wait – Glorious drops on Shudder on 18 August.
