Michelle Monaghan’s character and her children face off with a vicious dog in a clip from Brad Anderson’s horror film Blood
Session 9 (watch it HERE) director Brad Anderson’s new horror film Blood is set to receive a theatrical release from Vertical Entertainment on January 27th, with a VOD release to follow on January 31st. Now that those dates are just a few days away, a minute-long clip from Blood has arrived online, and you can check it out at the bottom of this article.
Scripted by Will Honley, Blood stars Michelle Monaghan (Kiss Kiss Bang Bang) as Jess, a nurse and mother recently separated from her husband, who moves with her daughter Tyler and young son Owen back into her old farmhouse. Shortly after settling in, Owen’s dog escapes into the woods and returns days later, blood-soaked and rabid. When he attacks and bites Owen, the resulting infection from the bite grows more alarming by the day 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.
Monaghan is joined in the cast by Skeet Ulrich (Scream) as Jess’s estranged husband, Skylar Morgan Jones (Terror in the Woods) as her daughter Tyler, and Finlay Wojtak-Hissong (The Banana Splits Movie) as her son Owen. June B. Wilde (Final Destination 5), Rodrigo Beilfuss (Intersection), and Erik Athavale (Orphan: First Kill) are also in the cast.
A Rhea Films and H2L Media Group production, Blood was financed by Hercules Film Fund. Paris Kassidokostas Latsis and Terry Dougas produced for Hercules, with Gary Levinsohn and Billy Hines producing for H2L Media Group. Hercules’ Jean-Luc De Fanti serves as executive producer alongside Anderson, Steven Sims, Ryan Bartecki, Alexis Varouxakis, Max Work, and Daniel Bekerman.
The clip embedded below shows the moment when Monaghan’s character Jess and her two children go to check on the dog that has returned home, blood-soaked and rabid. This scene doesn’t go well for anyone involved. And it’s kind of brave for Vertical Entertainment to use this clip to market the film, as it features both a child and a dog getting hurt. Things a lot of people don’t like to see in movies, and yet here it’s used to draw viewers in. Interesting choice…
