There’s just something about the title Autumn Blood that makes us feel all cozy inside. It’s like drinking hot chocolate or something. In any event, the film itself is anything but warm and fuzzy as you’ll see from the following trailer and one-sheet!
108 Media and Paladin have secured North American rights for Markus Blunder’s Austrian thriller Autumn Blood with plans for a North American release this year. Sophie Lowe (“Once Upon a Time in Wonderland”) stars with Peter Stormare, Gustaf Skarsgard, and Samuel Vauramo playing the antagonists.
High in the mountains on a secluded farm, a widowed mother dies, leaving her two children alone and orphaned. Fearing being taken away and split up, they keep their mother’s death a secret and survive off the land with no one to rely on but each other. The sixteen-year-old sister (Lowe) is one with nature, innocent and unaware of the evils that exist in mankind. Her ten-year-old brother is traumatized and mute from witnessing a disturbing incident years earlier (the death of his father) involving the town’s Mayor (Stormare). As the girl transitions into womanhood, a harsh brutality destroys her innocence when savage hunters (Skarsgard and Tim Morten Uhlenbrock) led by the Mayor’s son (Vauramo) attack and rape her. A social worker from a distant city arrives to investigate, but ultimately it is the siblings who must come of age to protect each other and survive.
