Beware of the dog.
Blood–a new horror feature–this week was snapped up for sale by Vertical Entertainment, according to a report on Deadline. The film–slated for theaters and digital platforms–does not yet have a release window.
The movie–directed by Brad Anderson (The Machinist) from a screenplay by Will Honley–follows Jess (Michelle Monaghan of the Mission: Impossible franchise), a nurse and mother recently separated from her husband (Scream standout Skeet Ulrich), who moves with her daughter Tyler (Skylar Morgan Jones) and young son Owen (Finlay Wojtak-Hissong) back into her old farmhouse, according to the synopsis.
But, shortly after settling in, Owen’s dog “escapes into the woods and returns days later–blood-soaked and rabid. When the dog attacks and bites Owen, the resulting infection grows more alarming by the day, and Owen’s behavior becomes frightening and deadly.”
As the boy “spirals deeper into the depths of the illness, Jess discovers a disturbing cure–which makes her question how far she is willing to go to keep her child alive.”
Blood also stars June B. Wilde (Final Destination 5), Rodrigo Beilfuss (Intersection) and Erik Athavale (Orphan: First Kill). The film was produced by Paris Kassidokostas-Latsis, Terry Douglas, Gary Levinsohn and Billy Hines.
