Mathieu Turi’s Hostile will be released here in North America by Sony’s 4Digital Media, Bloody Disgusting learned. The post-apocalyptic thriller was selected for more than 30 festivals including Sitges, Frightfest and Neuchatel, collecting more than 15 prizes (Variety).
In the film, “After a worldwide epidemic, most of the planet’s population is killed. Only a few thousand have survived and are struggling to find food and shelter. But they’re not alone: They have to hide from strange creatures that go hunting at night.
Juliette, a young woman whose life has taught her to handle things on her own, is the only one in her group to have the guts to go anywhere near cities to find food. But on her way back to the camp one afternoon, she loses control as she’s driving. She wakes up upside down, stuck in her car with a broken leg, in the middle of the desert, and it’s nighttime.”
Directed by Turi and produced by Xavier Gens (The Divide, Frontier(s)), Hostile stars Brittany Ashworth, Grégory Fitoussi, and Javier Botet, who we’ve written about previously.
