Brainstorm Media has unveiled the official trailer and poster for the female-driven and directed werewolf thriller BLOODTHIRSTY, which had its world premiere as the closing night film at the virtual Fantastic Fest Celebration 2020. Make sure you check out the trailer below and let us know what you think!
Directed by Amelia Moses (Bleed With Me), conceived and written by mother-daughter duo Wendy Hill-Tout and singer-songwriter Lowell, and featuring the original music of Lowell, BLOODTHIRSTY stars Lauren Beatty (Bleed With Me) and Greg Bryk (“The Handmaid’s Tale”, “Bitten”, My Spy) with Katharine King So in her feature film debut and veteran actor Michael Ironside (Total Recall, Scanners, Starship Troopers).
Grey, an indie singer, whose first album was a smash hit, gets an invitation to work with notorious music producer Vaughn Daniels at his remote studio in the woods. Together with her girlfriend/lover Charlie, they arrive at his mansion, and the work begins. But Grey is having visions that she is a wolf, and as her work with the emotionally demanding Vaughn deepens, the vegan singer begins to hunger for meat and the hunt. As Grey starts to transform into a werewolf, she begins to find out who she really is, and begins to discover the family she never knew. What will it take to become a great artist and at what cost to her humanity?
BLOODTHIRSTY is produced by Wendy Hill-Tout and Michael Peterson. It is executive produced by David Bond and Alan Bacchus.
The deal was negotiated by Michelle Shwarzstein and Steve Break on behalf of Brainstorm Media and Pip Ngo of XYZ Films on behalf of the filmmakers.
