J.D. Dillard (Sleight) reteams with Blumhouse on Sweetheart, a new creature feature Universal Home Entertainment is set to release on VOD platforms October 22, 2019.
Meredith Borders reviewed the film out of the Sundance Film Festival World Premiere and called it “a beautiful and exhilarating film with an extraordinary leading performance and one hell of a big bad,” noting that “the monster is so cool, and we get a great look at it.”
Jenn (Kiersey Clemons) finds herself completely alone on a small tropical island after her boat goes down. By day, every ounce of her strength, cunning, and courage is strained simply to find food, outlast the elements, and survive. But as the sun sets, Jenn’s waking nightmare inexorably grows into terror, when a malevolent force comes to stalk the jungle for prey.
It also stars Emory Cohen, Hanna Mangan Lawrence, and Andrew Crawford.
