Justin Benson & Aaron Moorheads unique, enrapturing horror romance Spring will arrive from Drafthouse Films and FilmBuff in time for said season.
A Toronto International Film Festival world premiere, Spring is the directing duos follow-up to their acclaimed, metaphysical Resolution. Here, in whats been described as a monstrous Before Sunrise, Evan (Lou Taylor Pucci, Evil Dead, Thumbsucker) is a young American fleeing to Europe to escape his past. While backpacking along the Italian coast, everything changes during a stop at an idyllic Italian village, where he meets and instantly connects with the enchanting and mysterious Louise. A flirtatious romance begins to bloom between the two – however, Evan soon realizes that Louise has been harboring a monstrous, primordial secret that puts both their relationship and their lives in jeopardy.
Spring is stunning and evocative, of a piece with the singular perspective introduced in Resolution and pushed further into lush visual territory. This one very much earned a place on my must see horror films of 2015 and you can look forward to doing so on March 20th when the film hits theaters from Drafthouse and VOD from FilmBuff.
