Virgil Films & Entertainment has something of a sleeper release in inventory for early in 2014. This would be writer/director Markus Blunder’s festival-winning “horror” tale, Autumn Blood.
The street date for the domestic DVD debut is Jan. 28.
When a teenage girl (Sophie Lowe) finds herself orphaned — as the result of the death of her mother — she takes it upon herself to care for her ten year-old brother and carry on with life as normal in their remote mountain pasture home.
But the scent of the young woman, figuratively speaking, is too much for some of the local town toughs to simply ignore and so three of them pay her a visit. A brutal visit!!
Autumn Blood combines the lyrical beauty of The Sound of Music with the intensity of Peckinpah’s Straw Dogs. The brutality of some and the well-meaning nature of others are set aside as innocence is shattered, the tranquility of the mountains destroyed and the basics of human survival become simply a matter of life and death.
