Genre distributor The Horror Collective has announced that it will be distributing Andrew Merrill’s nightmarish horror-thriller Rot.
In the film, “When Madison’s ex-boyfriend goes missing, his friends expect her to lead the search to find him. But something vile has taken over his body, and what they find is worse than any of them could have imagined.”
The film stars Kris Alexandrea (Gothic Springs), Johnny Kostrey (Kidding, Aquarius, The Good Place), McKale Jude Bingham (Betrayed), Adam Burch (Nazis at the Center of the Earth), and Eileen Dietz (The Exorcist, 100 Acres of Hell, Halloween 2).
Writer-director Andrew Merrill says of the experience of making ROT that “I’m incredibly proud of what our team pulled off, and so grateful that everybody stuck with me through all the late nights, cramped apartments, and general craziness of independent filmmaking. I’m excited for ROT to find it’s audience, and I hope it will resonate with them as much as it has with me.”
The Horror Collective’s Heidi Honeycutt adds, “ROT goes places only Cronenberg has dared to tread thus far. It’s an incredibly effective and shocking picture that horror fans are going to enjoy as they shiver.”
ROT, produced by Beth Crudele (The Gift, Fuller House) will be released on November 19, 2020, exclusively through Amazon.
