Who’s hungry? From producers Blumhouse (M3GAN) and releasing on Prime Video next month, The Horror Of Dolores Roach is a brand new comedy horror series that you can get your mouth around.
Watch the first trailer…
The Horror Of Dolores Roach, based on the hit Spotify podcast of the same name, is a contemporary Sweeney Todd-inspired urban legend of love, betrayal, weed, cannibalism and survival of the fittest. Dolores Roach is released after an unjust 16-year prison sentence, and she returns to a gentrified Washington Heights. Dolores reunites with an old stoner friend, Luis, who lets her live and work as a masseuse in the basement under his empanada shop. When the promise of her newfound stability is quickly threatened, “Magic Hands” Dolores is driven to shocking extremes to survive.
