SCREAMBOX is a platform that solely focuses on the horror genre of movies. Be slasher, jumpscare, gory, psychological thrillers, and many more. In a nutshell, SCREAMBOX is the Netflix for horror films. After mainly streaming horror films, now the platform has begun to create its own films. Recently it was announced that a SCREAMBOX Original film is set to hit the theatres next month. The film is titled Here for Blood. It is a wrestling-based horror film.
What is Here For Blood all about?
The production released a press release about the film and where it will be available for people to watch.
“A gory throwback to video store staples of the ’80s and ’90s, SCREAMBOX Original wrestling-fueled horror-comedy Here For Blood will invade select theaters, digital, and SCREAMBOX on February 9.
Struggling to make ends meet, a rowdy pro wrestler agrees to babysit a precocious 10-year-old girl. What starts of as a laid-back night of junk food and video games quickly spirals into bloody chaos as the secluded home is invaded by a cult of mask-wearing maniacs.
The Resident Evil franchise’s Shawn Roberts stars as the besieged babysitter, while Twisted Sister frontman Dee Snider lends his legendary voice to a decapitated skull. Maya Misaljevic (The Boys), Joelle Farrow, Tara Spencer-Nairn, and Michael Therriault (Chucky) co-star.”
Wrestling veterans in Here for Blood
“Professional wrestlers “Hardcore” Channing Decker (Dark Side of the Ring, TNA) and Marc Andre Boulanger (Ring of Honor, CZW) also appear in the film, while Roberts trained with Tyson Dux (WWE, TNA, Ring of Honor) to prepare for the lead role.
Directed by Daniel Turres and written by James Roberts, Here for Blood body-slammed audiences on the festival circuit. It won six awards at its Toronto After Dark premiere, including “Best Film to Watch with a Crowd,” and went on to play FrightFest (Glasgow and London), IFI Horrorthon (Ireland), and Ramaskrik (Norway).”
Managing Director Brad Miska on Here for Blood
“Currently holding an 88% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. The movie was praised by Film Threat as “a heart-pounding roundhouse punch of a good time.” Daily Dead called it a “fun-as-hell genre-bender.” Starburst Magazine commended it as “an entertaining, splatter-filled romp that slams above its weight.”
“Here for Blood is the kind of movie weekends were made for, whether you want to see it on the big screen or in the comfort of your own home,” says Brad Miska, Managing Director of Bloody Disgusting/Cineverse. “Step into the shadows of nostalgia with effects so practically perfect that fans of ’90s horror are going to think they’ve died and gone to Blockbuster.”
SCREAMBOX has had a connection with professional wrestling. One of AEW’s top stars, Swerve Strickland, also acted in a SCREAMBOX film, The Night Of The Missing.
Here for Blood is the latest SCREAMBOX Original to grace the big screen, joining such cult classics as Onyx the Fortuitous and the Talisman of Souls, The Outwaters, and Terrifier 2.
