As reported exclusively by Deadline earlier this morning, The Horror Collective will be bringing writer/director Andrew Merrill’s nightmarish and gore-filled body horror film Rot exclusively to Amazon later this week, on November 19th.
You can check out the film's trailer and poster art below.
In Rot, "When Madison’s ex-boyfriend goes missing, his friends expect her to lead the search to find him. But something vile has taken over his body, and what they find is worse than any of them could have imagined."
Rot stars Kris Alexandrea (Gothic Springs), Johnny Kostrey ("Kidding", "Aquarius"), McKale Jude Bingham (Betrayed), Adam Burch (Nazis at the Center of the Earth), and Eileen Dietz (The Exorcist, 100 Acres of Hell, Halloween 2).
Merrill says of the experience of making Rot, "I’m incredibly proud of what our team pulled off, and so grateful that everybody stuck with me through all the late nights, cramped apartments, and general craziness of independent filmmaking. I’m excited for Rot to find it’s audience, and I hope it will resonate with them as much as it has with me."
The Horror Collective’s Heidi Honeycutt adds, "Rot goes places only Cronenberg has dared to tread thus far. It’s an incredibly effective and shocking picture that horror fans are going to enjoy as they shiver."
Rot was produced by Beth Crudele (The Gift, "Fuller House").
