James Cullen Bressack’s Hostel inspired horror, Pernicious, is gearing up for its US release on 19th June, and while here in the UK we still wait for any release details, we can tease you with some fresh images and a brand new poster.
Naturally, if you want your fill of blood and sexy girls, I have also included the trailer below.
Pernicious is written and directed by James Cullen Bressack, and the cast includes Ciara Hanna (“Power Rangers”), Jackie Moore (100 Ghost Street), and Emmy-nominated Emily O’Brien (“The Young and the Restless”).
Three young, beautiful girls arrive in Thailand to teach English for the summer, some with noble intentions and some just wanting an adventure, but none were prepared for the massacre that awaited them. The nightmare begins when their new friends go missing, vivid bloody dreams haunt their sleep and a stolen statue leads them down a dark path into Thai folklore and magic that has been long forgotten. Their situation continues to become worse once they realize it’s not WHAT that is haunting them but WHO: an eight-year girl, brutally murdered and sacrificed by her family decades ago who wants nothing more than to watch them bleed. This is not a story about redemption. This is not a story about good versus evil. This is not a story about the will to survive. This is a story about Vanida – a child viciously tortured by her own family, who will stop at nothing for revenge – one appendage at a time.
