But Grey is having visions that she is a wolf, and as her work with the emotionally demanding Vaughn deepens, the vegan singer begins to hunger for meat and the hunt. As Grey starts to transform into a werewolf, she begins to find out who she really is, and begins to discover the family she never knew. What will it take to become a great artist and at what cost to her humanity?
Bloodthirsty stars Lauren Beatty as Grey, a young singer whose anti-psychotic drugs don’t put a stop to early dream sequences about being a wolf. That’s before she’s invited after the success of her first album to work with a notorious music producer, played by Greg Bryk, at his remote studio mansion in the woods.
The indie film, written by co-producer Wendy Hill-Tout and songwriter Lowell, replaces the actor in a furry suit with a more nuanced werewolf achieved mainly through prosthetics applied to Beatty’s face as her character’s unrelenting anxiety builds. “We have a hybrid, a mix of a human and a wolf. It’s a bit more grotesque, a bit weirder, and we still get the emotion of the main character, even when she’s a werewolf,” Director Amelia Moses says of her work on the wolf transformation with Dave Trainor, a veteran make-up and prosthetics maker on TV series like Fargo and Wynonna Earp.
Bloodthirsty arrives on VOD April 23rd.
