The Blumhouse production RUN SWEETHEART RUN – which is not connected to last year's Blumhouse movie SWEETHEART – got some interesting reactions when it screened at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year. It received some very positive reviews that called it clever and entertaining, and it received very negative reviews that told readers to take the advice given in the title and stay far away from the movie.

A wider audience will soon have their chance to see or avoid RUN SWEETHEART RUN, as Blumhouse's distribution and marketing label Blumhouse Tilt is set to release the film on May 8th.

Inspired by a bad date writer/director Shana Feste went on, this "feminist horror/thriller" shows what happens when 

a blind date turns violent and the woman has to get home on foot through Los Angeles as she’s pursued by her date.

Ella Balinska, Pilou Asbaek, Aml Ameen, Dayo Okeniyi, Betsy Brandt, Shohreh Aghdashloo, and Clark Gregg star. 

Feste produced RUN SWEETHEART RUN for Quiet Girl Productions, alongside Blumhouse's Jason Blum and Automatik's Brian Kavanaugh-Jones. Jennifer Besser, Couper Samuelson, Bea Sequeira, and Jeanette Volturno serve as executive producers.

With the release just two and half months away, we should be seeing a trailer for this one very soon.

In the meantime, here's the trailer for the unrelated SWEETHEART.
