Music probably won’t have charms to soothe this savage beast.

Brainstorm Media has announced that it has picked up U.S. rights to BLOODTHIRSTY, which world-premiered as the closing-night movie of 2020’s virtual Fantastic Fest. Set for theatrical and VOD release April 23 (it will be released in Canada on the same date by Raven Banner), the movie was directed by Amelia Moses (BLEED WITH ME) and conceived and written by the mother-daughter duo Wendy Hill-Tout and singer-songwriter Lowell, and features Lowell’s original music. BLEED WITH ME’s Lauren Beatty stars along with Greg Bryk, Katharine King So and genre favorite Michael Ironside; Hill-Tout also produced with Michael Peterson, and David Bond and Alan Bacchus were the executive producers. The synopsis: “In BLOODTHIRSTY, vegan singer-songwriter Grey [Beatty] goes to work on her second album with notorious music producer Vaughn Daniels [Bryk]. But as the album progresses, she starts to transform into a powerful beast with a thirst for blood, meat and the hunt.”

“We can’t wait to share this fantastically twisted werewolf horror film with audiences nationwide,” says Brainstorm’s Michelle Shwarzstein. “Led by an amazingly talented female filmmaking team, this movie will not fail to surprise and delight.”
