Eric England's latest Cronenberg-esque thriller CONTRACTED has just been picked up by Darclight Films and plans to spread the infection throughout the Cannes Film Market. Directed by England and features the hefty cast of Najarra Townsend, Caroline Williams, Charlie Koontz, Dave Holmes, and Ruben Pla, amongst others.
CONTRACTED tells the terrifying tale of a young girl who has a one-night stand with a stranger, contracting what she thinks is a sexually transmitted disease, but it is actually something far worse. As things begin to crumble around her, she's sent on a disturbing and bloodcurdling journey, sure to keep audiences on the edge of their seats. With nail-biting suspense and frightening twists, CONTRACTED is a horror film for those who think they've seen it all.
The flick actually sounds pretty damn cool as it looks to be a modern and horrifying take on the traditional zombie genre. Darclight Films is handling international sales for CONTRACTED, and XYZ Films will be handling North American sales. The film was produced by Raphael Margules and J.D. Lifshitz of BoulderLight Pictures.
