Today, Shudder, AMC Networks’ premium streaming service for horror, thriller and the supernatural, has released a brand new poster and a brand new clip (which originally debuted on SlashFilm) to get ourselves ready for next week’s release of DEAD & BEAUTIFUL. Make sure you check out the clip below and let us know what you think!
In DEAD & BEAUTIFUL, five rich, spoiled Asian twenty-somethings (Gijs Blom, Aviis Zhong, Yen Tsao, Philip Juan, Anechka Marchenko) are suffering from upper class ennui, unsure how to spend their days when so little is expected from them. In search of excitement, the five friends form the “Circle,” a group where they take turns designing a unique, extravagant experience for the others. But things go wrong when the privileged urbanites awaken after a night out, to find they have developed vampire fangs and an unquenchable thirst for flesh, blood, and adventure at any price.
DEAD & BEAUTIFUL is David Verbeek’s seventh feature. Among his previous films are the award-winning Full Contact, which premiered at TIFF in 2015 and R U There, which played Cannes’ Un Certain Regard in 2010. The film is produced by Erik Glijnis (Pleasure) and Leontine Petit (The Lobster) of Lemming Film, in co-production with House on Fire International, Nukleus Film, and Woods of Light Film. Indie Sales is handling international sales.
The psychological vampire-thriller DEAD & BEAUTIFUL will premiere on Shudder on Thursday, November 4 in North America, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia and New Zealand.
