Wednesday, April 14, 2021 | News


The horror/comedy coming next month looks pretty damned funny.

Dread has announced that it will bring BENNY LOVES YOU, which we previously covered here, to select theaters May 7, on-demand platforms May 11 and Blu-ray June 8. Karl Holt wrote, directed and produced with John Bowe, and also stars alongside Claire Cartwright, George Collie, James Parsons, Anthony Styles and Darren Benedict. The synopsis: “After the accidental death of his parents, Jack’s [Holt] comfortable lifestyle comes to an end and he must sell his family home. Desperate to improve his life, Jack throws out his childhood belongings including his beloved plush, Benny. It’s a move that has disastrous consequences when Benny springs to life with deadly intentions!”
