First Look at Animal, Produced By Drew Barrymore!

EW scored a first look at Animal, the new Chiller original film produced by Drew Barrymore’s Flower Films.

Check out the pic inside which finds rapper-actress Eve getting dragged away by…something.  Eve is just one of many rappers to make the leap from the music scene to horror (I’d list ’em here, but it’s rather long and kind of embarrassing).

Animal will have a limited theatrical and VOD run before making its debut on Chiller sometime in 2014.  When plans for a weekend vacation hit a dead end, a group of close-knit friends find themselves stranded in unfamiliar territory, pursued by a menacing, blood thirsty predator. Holed up in an isolated cabin, tensions mount as long-buried secrets are revealed. As the body count rises, the group must put their differences aside and fight for survival. Animal is from executive producers Drew Barrymore and Nancy Juvonen, and producers Chris Miller, Ember Truesdell, Kelly Smith and Thommy Hutson for Flower Films. The film is written by Thommy Hutson and Catherine Trillo and directed by Brett Simmons; creature effects are by Gary J. Tunnicliffe.
