AFM 2016: Puberty Gets Scary for Abbie Cornish and More


Puberty. Your voice is awkward, you’re covered in pimples, your skin is oily, and your chances of getting laid are zero. In the new horror flick Puberty, those are the least of your problems.

Variety is reporting that Abbie Cornish, Dylan Gelula, and Garrett Wareing are starring in Puberty, Eddie Alcazar’s psychological thriller for Flying Lotus’ Brainfeeder Films.

Alcazar is producing and directing Puberty from a script by Ted Kupper, based on a story by Alcazar and Kupper. Flying Lotus is executive producing and composing the score for the film. It’s the second feature for Brainfeeder Films, which was announced in September at the Toronto Intl. Film Festival.

Production is set for this winter in Los Angeles with CAA handling domestic rights. Brainfeeder unveiled the project at this year’s American Film Market, where it launched international sales.

Wareing is portraying a teenage boy with a violent past who is haunted by dark visions and enters a mysterious clinic where the patients wildly transform their bodies and minds using genetic engineering. He undergoes treatment, installing therapeutic implants into his body — but discovers that purity of mind is not exactly what he’d imagined.
