Bloody Disgusting has landed the exclusive first images from Contracted, the new film from writer/director Eric England (Madison County, Roadside). The film just wrapped principal photography earlier this week and stars Njarra Townsend, Caroline Williams, Katie Stegeman, Charley Koontz, E-Kan Soong, Matt Mercer, Simon Barrett, Alice Macdonald, Jennifer Gonzalez, Ruben Pla and Lionel D. Carson.
In the film, also penned by England, “A young girl has a one-night stand with a random stranger and contracts, what she thinks is, a sexually-transmitted disease – but is actually something much worse.” Here’s our initial report on the project.
I recently spent some time on the set of the film, and while I can’t give away too much just yet – I can say that this movie most certainly does not shy away from its subject matter. I wouldn’t wish the sickness visited on Townsend’s character on anyone but, from what I saw at least, it felt like she was rising to the challenges of the role. My visit left me feeling queasy in all of the intended ways.
We also have the exclusive word on England’s next directing gig, The Underneath. In the film written by T.J. Cimfel (Crawl To Me), “After her husband goes missing in a tragic mining accident, a distraught woman joins the rescue crew only to discover a demonic presence hellbent on reaching the surface.”
