Deadline tells us today that Vertical Entertainment has scooped up North American and UK rights for the new psychological horror ‘Blood‘ from award-winning director Brad Anderson (The Machinist, The Call). The feature-length film, which will be released both on theatres and VOD, has yet to obtain an official release date.
In the movie:
Jess (Michelle Monaghan), a nurse and mother recently separated from her husband (Skeet Ulrich), moves with her daughter Tyler (Skylar Morgan Jones) and young son Owen (Finlay Wojtak-Hissong) back into her old farmhouse. Shortly after settling in, Owen’s dog escapes into the woods and returns days later, blood-soaked and rabid. When he attacks and bites Owen, the resulting infection from the bite grows more alarming by the day as Owen’s behavior becomes frightening and deadly. As he spirals deeper into the depths of the illness, Jess discovers a disturbing cure, which makes her question how far she is willing to go to keep her child alive.
The film is written by Will Honley and stars June B. Wilde (Final Destination 5), Rodrigo Beilfuss (Intersection) and Erik Athavale (Orphan: First Kill). It was financed by Hercules Film Fund and produced by Rhea Films and the H2L Media Group. Its producers are Paris Kassidokostas-Latsis, Terry Dougas, Gary Levinsohn and Billy Hines.
