Werewolf movies have been around for decades, and not every writer or director has a bold new take. But Bloodthirsty – which got excellent reviews when it closed out last year's Fantastic Fest – sounds fresh.
Singer-songwriter Grey (Lauren Beatty), a vegan, is preparing her second album with producer Vaughn Daniels (Greg Bryk). But during the recording sessions, she develops a growing taste for blood. This is Beatty's second movie with director Amelia Moses after her feature debut Bleed with Me, which also premiered at festivals last year. While this does sound awfully reminiscent of Julia Ducournau's Raw, that was a great movie, so I'm intrigued to check this one out.
Bloodthirsty, which co-stars Michael Ironside, will premiere in limited release on April 23. It will premiere on VOD the same day.
