UK cult sensation and festival favorite Simon Rumley will direct Adam Allecca‘s psychological horror/ thriller Skin for PCH Films, Bloody Disgusting learned.
Voted #3 “best horror script” on last years Blood List, “ ‘Skin’ is a taut psychological thriller about an insecure woman who becomes addicted to plastic surgery after marrying a well-intentioned surgeon. When a procedure goes horribly wrong, she slips into madness. Blaming the surgeon and his friends, she takes gruesome revenge.”
Rumley most recently directed the jaw-dropping “Bitch” as part of the psycho sexual horror anthology Little Deaths and is currently filming an installment of The ABC’s of Death in Suriname. Rumley’s award winning Red White & Blue was picked up by IFC Midnight and will be released theatrically this week in the UK by Trinity Films. Alleca made a big splash last week when it was announced that he would reteam with Dennis illiadus (The Last House on the Left) to direct his script Home which is being produced by Leonardo DiCaprio’s Appian Way.
