Bloody Disgusting has the official one-sheet debut for The Hive, a cross-genre sci-fi horror thriller that’s said to turn the contagion genre on its head.
The indie flick gained attention at Fantastic Fest and will be in theaters nationwide for one-night screening event on September 14th, and available on digital platforms later this fall.
The colorful poster was conceived and painted by LA artist Van Saro. The artist’s graffiti work first appeared on the side of buildings in Vancouver in his native Canada when he was a teenager. Now working in LA and working in oil, Saro has adapted his street-art infused style to herald the coming of nightmarish terrors.
“The Hive tells the story of Adam, a teenage camp counselor who wakes inside a boarded up cabin, with absolutely no memory of who he is or where he is. The only clues as to who he is and what’s happening are messages Adam has scrawled for himself onto the walls and disturbing changes to his physiology. As he begins to piece together the events that led him to his strange imprisonment, he realizes that the only memories he does have are not his own, and they may be the key to his survival.”
The film, from producer Cary Granat (Scream) and directed by Dave Yarovesky, stars Gabriel Basso (Kings of Summer, Super 8), Kathryn Prescott (MTV’s Finding Carter, Skins), Jacob Zachar (Greek) and Gabrielle Mann (Vampire Diaries, Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones).
