Bring on all of the werewolf films!...
...Via THR, a unique werewolf flick from director Amelia Moses entitled Bloodthirsty is coming to the Cannes virtual film market, where 775 Media Corp is handling sales!
In Bloodthirsty, which was written by co-producer Wendy Hill-Tout and songwriter Lowell and "blends a werewolf tale with slow-burn spookiness and dread to explore female anxieties":
"A young singer's anti-psychotic drugs don't put a stop to early dream sequences about being a wolf. That's before Grey's invited after the success of her first album to work with a notorious music producer at his remote studio mansion in the woods...As Grey's emotionally-fraught musical collaboration deepens, the vegan singer starts to hallucinate she's a wolf with a growing hunger for meat and the hunt. Soon the record producer has Grey convinced her psychotic visions are a gift and a gateway to an esteemed fraternity of monsters."
A Canadian werewolf film dealing with female anxieties, much as Ginger Snaps did? Yes please!
The film stars Lauren Beatty and Greg Bryk.
According to the site, the film opts for a more subtle look for the werewolf, mainly using prosthetics applied to Beatty's face as her character's unrelenting anxiety builds rather than a full on wolf suit. While we do love our full on wolf suits here at KHC, it does sound as if Moses is going for something truly unique, which is always welcome.
Said Moses, "We have a hybrid, a mix of a human and a wolf. It's a bit more grotesque, a bit weirder, and we still get the emotion of the main character, even when she's a werewolf."
The film is also produced by Michael Peterson and executive produced by David Bond.
