American Mary Co-Star Enlists for Body Horror Flick, Love Sick


Tristan RiskTristan Risk got our attention for her transformative turn in American Mary last year, now she's set to star in Love Sick for Polluted Pictures and director Todd Freeman.

The film is the story of Rebecca and Marcus who have been together for 10 years and after much deliberation have decided to part ways.  After separating and being with others, they quickly realize how hard it is to disconnect from one another. The pain, lies, and betrayal all begin to manifest physically within the both of them as well as infect the others who have become involved with intimately. They love each other so much that it hurts… some more than others.

Risk says, “After watching the proof of concept piece [M is for Marriage] and reading the feature script, I became really excited.  I love a good slasher horror but Love Sick is different:  It has the ability to haunt you well after you’ve seen it.  It leaves you questioning your own relationships, makes you wonder how well you know those closest to you, and what horrors lay just beneath the surface.”

Polluted Pictures completed a proof of concept piece showing a 3-minute peek into the world of Love Sick with the short film “M is for Marriage,” which will also be included in the in the upcoming ABC’s of Death 1.5 anthology film released by Drafthouse Films.
