Sick: John Hyams, Kevin Williamson slasher is now available on DVD and digital


John Hyams, director of the very cool 2020 thriller Alone, recently teamed up with Scream screenwriter Kevin Williamson to bring us the pandemic slasher Sick, which is set in April of 2020. Right after the world shut down due to Covid-19. The film was released through the Peacock streaming service back in January (on Friday the 13th, to be exact) – and now it has also received a DVD and digital release! Sick can be viewed on Amazon’s Prime Video at THIS LINK, and copies of the DVD can be purchased HERE.

Scripted by Katelyn Crabb (who was credited as Williamson’s assistant on Scream 2022) from a story by Williamson, Sick takes place when the country locks down due to the pandemic and college student Parker and her best friend decide to quarantine at the family lake house alone – or so they think.

The film stars Gideon Adlon (The Craft: Legacy), Dylan Sprayberry (Teen Wolf), Jane Adams (She Dies Tomorrow), Marc Menchaca (Ozark), Charla Bocchicchio (Stalker), Bethlehem Million (And Just Like That…), Duane Stephens (Evil Angel), Jihae Song (Prescription for Love), Logan Murphy (Chicago Med), Alireza Mirmontazeri (Avocado Toast), Aarman Touré (The Housewives of the North Pole), and newcomer Kimberlee Kraczek.

Williamson produced Sick with Bill Block and Ben Fast. Andrew Golov executive produced alongside line producer Michael J. Zampino.

Hyams’ other directing credits include Universal Soldier: Regeneration, Universal Soldier: Day of Reckoning, and episodes of Z Nation, Black Summer, The Originals, and Legacies. He was attached to direct a remake of Maniac Cop for a long time, but it’s looking like that is never going to make it into production.

I had a good time watching Sick back in January, and so did JoBlo’s own JimmyO, who gave the film an 8/10 review you can read at THIS LINK. So I’m glad to see that it’s not going to only exist on Peacock, but has also made its way to physical media. It’s odd that it’s only DVD with no Blu-ray in sight, but I’ll take what I can get.
