Opening their hearts could lead to this movie’s characters literally losing them.

Black Mandala has revealed the trailer and poster for LOVE HURTS, directed by Hiroshi Katagiri from a script by Aviva Dove-Viebahn and Brittany Fonte. Sean Sprawling, Natalie Burn, Simon Phillips, Andrés Erickson, Rich Paul and Sean Patrick Flanery star; the synopsis: “Looking forward to a once-in-a-life experience on the most romantic night of the year, six single 20somethings find themselves Valentine’s Day guests of a wealthy, mysterious host and his tight-lipped butler. Each of the invitees has been offered $10,000 and the promise of love–if only they can make it through dinner and reach a personal ‘breakthrough.’ With nothing to lose and thousands to gain, these strangers open their hearts and minds to the possibility of real, romantic connections. By night’s end, all but two of them are dead!”
