Following the promo image we saw earlier this month, Polluted Pictures have released the teaser poster for LOVE SICK. It's an evocative image designed by Justin Erikson and Paige Reynolds from Phantom City Creative, and writer/director Todd Freeman (CELL COUNT) says, “Justin and Paige came up with so many amazing ideas for the initial teaser poster but this one just stood out as being somehow simple, beautiful, and disgusting all at the same time. It’s a very good representation of what the film is about in it’s heart. It’s simple, beautiful, and disgusting heart.”
On of the stars attached, Barbara Crampton (FROM BEYOND) added about the project, “LOVE SICK gives me an opportunity to be completely terrified by my own deepest needs and desires. To look inside at the demon within. We know intellectually how we hurt those we say we love, but now with LOVE SICK we get to see and experience it in the flesh... so to speak. Pathos and sly humour work well together in this culturally thoughtful and well crafted script.”
From the press release:
"The plot of LOVE SICK involves Rebecca and Marcus, who have been together 10 years. After separating and being with others, they quickly realise how hard it is to disconnect from one another. The unplanned catalyst of becoming pregnant makes them seek out a specialist, Dr. Christian, who helps them come to terms with their infected love and forces them to purge the overwhelming sickness they’ve created to spite one another. The pain, lies, and betrayal all continue to manifest physically within the both of them as well as infect the others whom they have become involved with intimately. Their love is toxic and has been spread to others and it must be stamped out completely, to truly begin anew."
The creative team are currently in Montreal pitching the project at the Frontières International Co-Production Market, which takes place during the Fantasia International Film Festival.
Other actors attached to be in the film are Tristan Risk (AMERICAN MARY, CALL GIRL), Francisco Barreiro (HERE COMES THE DEVIL), Andrew Sensenig (UPSTREAM COLOR), Augie Duke (BAD GIRLS GO TO HELL), Ruben Pla (BIG ASS SPIDER), Camden Toy (BUFFY), and Bill Moseley (THE DEVIL'S REJECTS).
