Butterflies in the stomach, trembling, sweating, a dry mouth, and a beating heart – love, or fear? At this time of year that proves romantic to some and horrifying to others, the IFI is delighted to partner with Horrorthon in presenting a selection of new films that explore the darker side of meeting a special someone. Across these films can be seen homicidal rage, mistrust, and resentment, all occasional hallmarks of any relationship, whether coming from a warped psychological experiment, an exciting German addition to the zombie canon, a grim slice of Australian mayhem, or one of the year’s most intriguing horror films. These are films to see while curled up with your nearest and dearest – just watch your back.
Bleeding Hearts is available to rent until Friday 19th February at 9AM.
