The gory, action-horror Here For Blood is coming to London for Pigeon Shrine FrightFest on 25th August, after its hugely successful UK Premiere at FrightFest Glasgow. The film is directed by Daniel Turres and features Shawn Roberts, who horror fans will recognize as Albert Wesker from the Resident Evil movies, as well as Joelle Farrow (Under The Banner of Heaven) & Maya Misaljevic.
“…find themselves fighting for their lives when an otherworldly cult of masked intruders descends on the home.”
When his girlfriend, Phoebe, is swamped with college exams, Tom O’Bannon, a rowdy pro-wrestler struggling to make ends meet, agrees to fill in as a last-minute replacement for her well-paying babysitting job. Tom arrives at an isolated family home where he meets the precocious 10-year-old Grace. What starts off as a quiet night of pizza and video games quickly spirals into bloody, violent chaos as Tom and Grace find themselves fighting for their lives when an otherworldly cult of masked intruders descends on the home.
Director Daniel Turres said, “Here For Blood is the result of many talented people working hard and giving their all to make a completely independent feature film in a new film community without any bursaries or film grants. We had to find our own way to make this ambitious project happen by knocking on doors, pounding the pavement, finding creative solutions, and carving our own unique path to production and beyond. We hope that our film will inspire the Canadian film community, create opportunities, and show what is possible on an independent level.”
