Spring and love are in the air, but let’s face it… so are heavy doses of pollen and broken-hearted misery, too. I mean, you can’t force anyone to love you, right? Well, maybe… at least that’s the case in the new flick Love Sick Love!
From the Press Release
Amid a cinema landscape of syrupy rom-coms and warm bodied zombies that live happily ever after, director Christian Charles (Jerry Seinfeld’s Comedian, Cheech & Chong’s Hey Watch This) in his latest film LOVE SICK LOVE offers up a film for the romantically challenged. In the spirit of Fatal Attraction and Swimming with Sharks but for the dating world — a New York businessman’s fling turns deadly when he is teamed with a psychotic serial romantic in this boy meets girl thriller that propels the term “love hurts” to a whole new level. The film will be available on DVD May 21st from Monarch Home Entertainment.
Dori, a sexy siren, traps Norman, a slick New York businessman, and forces him to live through a year of holidays to prove they’re a perfect couple. But with Dori, Valentine’s Day, Christmas, and New Year’s celebrations take place over one weekend in an isolated country house far from help or a phone tower. The feature stars Matthew Settle (“Gossip Girl”) and Swedish actress Katia Winter (“Dexter”), who are joined by Charlotte Rae (“Facts of Life”) as Grandma Edna and M. Emmet Walsh (Blood Simple) as Grandpa Ed, along with Jim Gaffigan (Away We Go, Going the Distance) as Settle’s business partner.
The film premiered theatrically at the Quad Cinema in Greenwich Village, New York, on April 19th and will screen at the NoHo Laemmle in Los Angeles on April 26th – expanding to a wider release across ten top US markets. The film was also made widely available April 19th via a day and date VOD release – to be followed by DVD on the Monarch Home Entertainment label.
The feature is theatrically distributed by mouseROAR with cross-platform online, DVD, and VOD by Freestyle Releasing and Monarch Home Entertainment. LOVE SICK LOVE is produced by Anne Estonilo and Christian Charles and executive produced by Eric Matejevich. Ryan Oxford wrote the original screenplay.
