You’re going to need protection from this forthcoming David Cronenberg-esque horror flick.
Bloody Disgusting exclusively learned that Eric England will be getting behind the camera for Contracted, a new gory sex-thriller that begins filming May 13 in the Los Angeles area.
We’re told the film, penned by England, is about a young girl that has a one night stand with a random stranger and contracts what she thinks is an STD… but is actually something much worse.
The project is a collaboration with the new production company BoulderLight Pictures, co-founded by JD Lifshitz and Raphael Margules, and Southern Fried Films.
“This is a step in a different and exciting direction for me,” England tells Bloody. “Contracted is a much different subject matter than what I’m used to taking on. It’s intimate and personal and has a lot to say about sexuality and promiscuity. If all goes right, I hope this film will do for hooking up with random strangers, what Jaws did for going to the beach.”
England’s slasher Madison County arrives on home video May 8 from Image Entertainment. His second feature, Roadside, hits the festival circuit this year.
