That sweet little cherub who embodies the spirit of love is becoming a ferocious demon next month; we’ve got the release info and an exclusive first look at the trailer and poster.

CUPID will be released on DVD and digital February 11 by Uncork’d Entertainment. Written and directed by Scott Jeffrey, the movie stars Georgina Jane, Bao Tieu, Michael Owusu, Abi Casson Thompson and Sarah T. Cohen. The synopsis: “After being horrendously embarrassed by the mean girls at school, Faye, a practicing witch, summons the evil Cupid to take revenge on all those who wronged her. On Valentine’s Day, Cupid does in fact rise, and will stop at nothing until the walls are covered in blood. The students must figure out a way to stop Cupid and undo the spell before their hearts get broken…very literally.”
