“For me it is a classic horror film in the sense that there is screaming, and it’s gory, and the killings are so amazing,” says rapper and actress Eve about her new film, Animal. Well, that does tick many of the crucial horror film boxes.
In addition to Eve, Animal stars Keke Palmer, Amaury Nolasco, Parker Young, Joey Lauren Adams, Elizabeth Gillies, Paul Iacono, Thorsten Kaye, and Jeremy Sumpter, and concerns a group of friends being pursued by a blood-thirsty predator. The film is directed by Brett Simmons (The Monkey’s Paw) and written by Thommy Hutson (Never Sleep Again: The Elm Street Legacy) and Catherine Trillo. Animal is produced by Drew Barrymore’s Flower Films, which also oversaw the recently-released-to-VOD horror movie Happy Camp.
Animal itself is hitting theaters and VOD on June 17 and will then premiere on Chiller. But you can exclusively check out the film’s new poster above and trailer below.
