The first trailer has been released for director Brad Anderson‘s upcoming psychological horror movie Blood. I’m a fan of Anderson’s film work which includes session 9, The Machinist, and more. This next movie of his looks like it will take audiences on a dark, sinister, and intense journey.
Michelle Monaghan (true detective) stars alongside Skeet Ulrich (scream), and here’s the synopsis:
The film follows Jess (Monaghan), “a nurse and mother recently separated from her husband (Ulrich), who 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 disturbing cure is blood, the kid needs to drink blood to stay alive, so that makes parenting fun! I enjoyed this trailer, and I hope that this turns out to be a good horror movie!
Vertical Entertainment Partner Peter Jarowey said in a statement: “Brad Anderson has delivered the quintessential horror film with a cast, led by Monaghan and Ulrich, that delivers on every level. We are excited to be back in business with Hercules Film Fund and Rhea Films and feel this holiday counter-programming will thrill audiences long after we ring in the new year.”
Vertical Entertainment will release the film on January 27, 2023. Watch the trailer and tell us what you think!
