Mike Flanagan's popular and widely acclaimed 2016 slasher film Hush is finally getting the kind of release it deserves! After being available to stream on Netflix for several years, the streaming service removed it in 2023 after the original deal expired.

This past February, Flanagan revealed that he and his team had "opted to take the movie elsewhere" via his Tumblr. He teased a new distribution deal for the film in his post.

We recently received more information on the new deal for the slasher film, as Flanagan was in attendance at the ATX Television Festival held in Austin, Texas. SlashFilm was in attendance and got to ask Flanagan directly about Hush during "The Monologue Case Study" panel.

According to the horror director, the film will be released on Blu-ray and it will also be available to stream again soon.

"If you've been looking for 'Hush' and it's nowhere to be found, it will be back soon. It will be everywhere. You'll be able to stream it. You'll be able to have it in your collection, and it's gonna be worth the wait because we did some really awesome new stuff for it"

You can read his entire quote at the source.

For now, Flanagan is remaining vague about the actual details, but regarding the "extras," I wouldn't be surprised if we got an audio commentary track or a few "making of" featurettes, maybe involving the film's star/co-writer and Flanagan's frequent collaborator (and wife), Kate Siegel.

For those unfamiliar with Hush, the film starring Siegel premiered in 2016 to significant praise. It currently holds a 93% approval score and a Certified Fresh seal on review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes. A tense home invasion thriller, Hush follows a deaf woman stalked by a killer.

Besides Siegel, the film also stars John Gallagher Jr., Samantha Sloyan, Michael Trucco, and Emilia "Emma" Graves. Like many of Flanagan's works, this one also shares a connection with one of his other series, Midnight Mass, which is based on Hush's in-universe novel of the same name penned by Siegel's character Maddie Young.
