After a terrific reception at the recent FantasticFest, Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead’s Spring has been acquired by Drafthouse Films and FilmBuff for US distribution. As is typical with Drafthouse releases, Spring will get a limited theatrical run and VOD release. According to Deadline, we should see that sometime early next year.
Spring is described as a horror romance, in which a man (Lou Taylor Pucci) flees the US, ends up in Italy, and falls in love with a woman (Nadia Hilker) who might also be a monster. Much like their smart and enjoyable Resolution, Benson and Moorhead sound like they’re playing it close to the chest with this trailer and synopsis. I can’t wait to see this one, because the buzz out of FantasticFest is pretty damn impressive.
