Sometimes we get overwhelmed by big-budget pictures, but when it comes to horror movies independent productions will always be the most interesting ones. Big lawyers and marketing directors can’t fight with the originality of a bunch of filmmakers thirsty to share their wicked dreams and ideas with the world. And this is what we get in Bloodthirsty (2020).
The movie centers on Grey, an indie singer whose first album was a smash hit and 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? As Grey completes her new album, Charlie tries to warn her about Vaughn, but Grey won’t abandon the album. Will Grey do whatever it takes to become a great artist, as she uncovers the truth about her past, her future, her family, and ultimately herself.
After horror-thriller Bleed with Me (2020), Amelia Moses returns with her new movie as writer and director. Producer Wendy Hill-Tout and musician Lowell have also been co-writers of the screenplay.
Actress and musician Lauren Beatty, who also starred in the previous film of the director, plays the main character in Bloodthirsty (2020). Together with her, Greg Bryk, Katharine King So, and Judith Buchan also star in a cast completed with the always essential Michael Ironside.
Bloodthirsty (2020) was part of Fantastic Fest, Telluride Horror Show, and Saskatoon Fantastic Film Festival in 2020, and it’s scheduled for a release on April 23, 2021, via Brainstorm Media. Here you can watch its trailer.
