Director Statement

Nightshade: The Rise of Stain is RudeXSlug Film's second foray into the superhero drama. We encountered many challenges, but managed to get it done. This originally was released as three separate webisodes and a special Halloween webisode of OCT 2021, but mashed together for film festivals.
