If you’re a fan of the director, you’ll be rabid over this one.

Vertical Entertainment has announced that BLOOD will arrive in theaters January 27 and on VOD platforms January 31. Directed by Brad Anderson, whose credits range from SESSION 9 to THE MACHINIST to THE CALL and beyond, from a script by Will Honley (2019’s BLOODLINE), it stars Michelle Monaghan (NANNY), Skeet Ulrich (SCREAM), Skylar Morgan Jones, Finlay Wojtak-Hissong and June B. Wilde. The synopsis: “Jess [Monaghan], a nurse and mother recently separated from her husband [Ulrich], moves her daughter Tyler [Jones] and young son Owen [Wojtak-Hissong] back into her family farmhouse. Shortly after settling in, Owen’s dog escapes into the woods and returns days later, blood-soaked and rabid. When the dog attacks and bites him, the resulting infection grows more shocking as Owen’s behavior becomes frightening and deadly. As he spirals deeper into the depths of the illness, Jess discovers a disturbing cure, which makes her question how far she is willing to go to keep her child alive.”
