‘A Creature Was Stirring’ Earns R Rating For “Bloody Images”

by Thomas Tuna

‘Tis the season to be…frightened.

It was last September that Well Go USA Entertainment picked up the Christmas-themed horror flick A Creature Was Stirring for global distribution, and this week the film received its MPA rating.

The feature has earned an R rating for “violence, bloody images, drug content, language and some sexual references”. With that hurdle cleared, a release window should soon be announced (sometime during the yule season?).

The movie–directed by Damien LeVeck from a screenplay by Shannon Wells–follows “overprotective mother and nurse Faith (Chrissy Metz), who keeps her teenage daughter (Annalise Basso) locked in her room and subjected to constant methadone injections–in order to sustain a delicately balanced fever state that keeps a mysterious affliction at bay,” according to the synopsis.

But, when two strangers (Scout Taylor-Compton and Connor Paolo) break into the house, seeking shelter from a Christmas blizzard, they discover this mother-daughter relationship “stretches the limits of dysfunction and reality.”

And the women are hiding a terrible secret–“namely, the presence of a malevolent house guest who won’t be content to lurk in the shadows much longer.”
