If you have the stomach to watch, we’ve got an exclusive and literally gut-ripping excerpt from this week’s IFC Midnight release FERAL to share with you.

FERAL, which hits select theaters and VOD this Friday, May 25, was directed by Mark H. Young from a script he wrote with Adam Frazier, and stars Scout Taylor-Compton (HALLOWEEN), Olivia Luccardi (IT FOLLOWS), Lew Temple, Renee Olstead, Brock Kelly, Landry Allbright and George Finn. The synopsis: “Your best friend has just been infected with a horrifying virus that will soon turn her into a rabid, rampaging cannibal-zombie. Do you: a) try to save her? or b) kill her before she kills you? That’s the nightmarish scenario six students find themselves facing when their celebratory camping trip goes terrifyingly wrong. One by one, each falls victim to the “feral” disease, until only Alice [Taylor-Compton] and Jules [Luccardi]—two girlfriends testing the waters of their new relationship—are left standing, armed with a shotgun and holed up in a remote cabin. They’ve got a hell of a fight before them if they hope to survive…”

Taylor-Compton discusses the movie with us here.
