‘Pet’ poster trapped in love’s cage (exclusive)
Orion Pictures and Samuel Goldwyn Films shared theatrical poster for psychological thriller with Bloody Disgusting Animals (read our review), directed by Carles Torrens and written by Jeremy Slater (“The Exorcist”, The Fantastic Four).
The film stars Dominic Monaghan (“Lost”, The Lord of the Rings series), Ksenia Solo (In search of Fellini, “Turn”), and Jennette McCurdy (“iCarly, Sam”, “Cat”), and had its world premiere at the 2016 South by Southwest Film Festival in Austin.
In the vein of HARD CANDY and GONE GIRL, PET is a psychological thriller that deals with themes of identity, loneliness, selflessness, and what it really means to belong to another. It’s told through the prism of two isolated people, Seth and Holly, seemingly different but more similar than they even knew. PET is at the heart of a dark love story that examines how much one is willing to sacrifice in the name of love.
Trace explained in his review that “Animals is best viewed as a wacky horror romance filled with enough gallows humor to satiate the Coen brothers.
Torrens tells Bloody Disgusting:
“Pets a very twisted suspense thriller with a bit of dark humor and romance. Although dealing with very dark material, we approached it in a very accessible way and hope it can be enjoyed by adult audiences all over the world.
Orion Pictures and Samuel Goldwyn Films will release the film in US theaters and on demand on Dec. 2, 2016, and it will be available on DVD on December 27.
