A rather wonderful film I reviewed during last year’s Blood in the Snow Film Festival was released in the US Friday, April 23rd, 2021, and on iTunes and all major VOD platforms in Canada! I had the opportunity to speak with the film’s director Amelia Moses… BLOODTHIRSTY is the name of the film, and it recently garnered 2 nominations from the Canadian Screen Awards: Best in Original Score — Michele Osis and Lowell, and Best in Original Song — Evan Bogar, Justin Gray, and Lowell. So, I thought I’d also re-post MY TAKE for BLOODTHIRSTY from my Blood in the Snow Film Festival 2020 blog series, just two days ahead of the film’s release. Director Amelia Moses tells the story of Grey (Lauren Beatty, also in Bleed With Me), a singer-songwriter who chooses to record her next album at the remote studio of the infamous producer, Vaughn (Greg Bryk, also in this year’s Parallel Minds). Vaughn is brilliant and charismatic but also mysterious. Meanwhile, Grey finds herself haunted by visions of becoming some sort of vicious animal. She must find out if the monster is outside the cabin, in the studio or inside her own body. MY TAKE: Loving Lauren Beatty in both the films she’s in this BITS season! But is she beauty, or is she the beast? A lovely film where you get to watch the musician and her music change as she changes…but are these alterations psychological or are they real? And what is with her new producer/mentor? He helps her grow, but into what…and why? I think you’ll enjoy finding out all the answers to this gorgeously haunting film.
