Vertical Entertainment delivers an atmospheric and and unsettling exercise in horror with Blood Craft, starring Madeleine Wade and Augie Duke. Co-writer/Director James Cullen Bressack presents a suspenseful witch-centric thriller about sisters seeking out vengeance on their already dead father.
Two sisters who suffered abuse as children at the hands of their sadistic father decide, after his death, to use witchcraft to bring his spirit back to get revenge
Here are 5 reasons why you should see Blood Craft:
5) Madeleine Wade!
Not only is Madeleine Wade a compelling lead, she also co-wrote the screenplay. Her flawless and heart-rending performance really elevates the thought-provoking material to another level. Her terrifying story is so in tune to the character of Grace, the estranged sister who reluctantly returns to the home she left behind.
4) Augie Duke!
An added bonus to Wade’s performance, Augie Duke is simply amazing to watch as Grace’s sister, Serena. Duke’s facial expressions capture the torture and anguish of a sister who feels abandoned. Thanks to the dynamic chemistry they have together, Duke and Wade really push their scenes as far as they can go.
3) Dominique Swain!
As a huge fan of her work in Face/Off and The 6th Friend, I really wanted to see Dominique Swain in Blood Craft! Appearing in the flashbacks, Swain plays Hilde, the mother of Grace and Serena. She delivers such a somber and sympathetic performance in the film.
2) The Scares!
After watching the opening scene, director James Cullen Bressack doesn’t hold back on the adult themes. Nik Shaw’s camerawork brilliantly captures a haunted house that has so much history behind its walls. Viewers will definitely be rattled by well-detailed séances and cleverly choreographed shock scares of the supernatural.
1) An Unsettling Thriller!
Unsettling and suspenseful, Blood Craft captures a genuinely moving and terrifying portrait of a family breakdown. Viewers are definitely in for some chills when they start watching.
Blood Craft will be available on digital and VOD April 9th, 2019.
