Get ready to be surprised and terrified with New Life, a genre-bending masterpiece from Brainstorm Media. This chilling film, directed by John Rosman in his feature debut, hits theaters and on-demand platforms across North America this May.

Beyond the Scream: A Character-Driven Exploration

New Life breaks from traditional horror tropes, offering a deeply personal and suspenseful experience. The film delves into the complexities of human nature and the concept of mortality. The story follows a mysterious woman on the run, played by the talented Hayley Erin (“Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists”). Hot on her heels is a resourceful fixer, portrayed by the ever-impressive Sonya Walger (For All Mankind). As their fates become intertwined, their pursuit takes on an apocalyptic dimension, raising the stakes to a new level.

From Festival Favorite to Nationwide Release

New Life has already captivated audiences worldwide at film festivals. It premiered at the prestigious 2023 Fantasia International Film Festival, quickly becoming a crowd-pleaser. The film continued its successful festival run, garnering critical acclaim at FrightFest London, Overlook Film Festival, Panic Fest, and many more. It most notably received the 2023 Audience Choice Award at the Heartland International Film Festival.

A Passion Project with a Powerful Message

Both writer and director Rosman drew inspiration from his documentary filmmaking background. His experience creating a story about a young woman diagnosed with ALS (dedicated to Summer Whisman) heavily influenced the narrative of New Life. The film is produced by T. Justin Ross (producer on Shudder’s hit “The Mortuary Collection”) and Mike Marchlewski. Executive producers David Lawson Jr. (Something in the Dirt, The Endless) and Rosman round out the impressive team.

A Stellar Cast Brings the Story to Life

New Life boasts a captivating cast. Sonya Walger and Hayley Erin deliver powerhouse performances as the pursuer and the pursued, respectively. The legendary Tony Amendola (Annabelle) adds further depth to the ensemble.

Coming This May
