Blind Date horror flick “Run Sweetheart Run” heads straight to Amazon


One of Blumhouse’s long list of horrors is bypassing the big screen and heading straight to Amazon.

Directed and written by Shana Feste, Run Sweetheart Run gained a strong word of mouth when it premiered at the Sundance Film Festival and so this bit of news gives us something to look forward too, when the airdate is revealed.

Run Sweetheart Run stars Ella Balinska (Charlie’s Angels), Pilou Asbæk (Game of Thrones), Aml Ameen (The Maze Runner), Betsy Brandt (Breaking Bad), and Clark Gregg (The Avengers).

The plot is about a blind date that turns violent and the woman has to get home on foot through Los Angeles as she’s pursued by her date.

Here is the official press release regarding the news.

“We are thrilled to continue our partnership with Blumhouse and Automatik to bring this thriller to our global Prime Video customers,” said Matt Newman, Co-Head of Movies at Amazon Studios. “Filmmaker Shana Feste takes the audience on a knuckle-bending ride that is sure to keep genre fans on the edge of their seats.”

“As crazy as audiences may find the film protagonist’s experience, I wrote and directed a film that is based on a very personal story for me and I’m thrilled that a global audience will have the chance to see it soon on Amazon Prime, said Shana Feste. “I’m also grateful to my friends at Universal and Blumhouse for their unending support of the film.”

“Shana is a supremely talented writer and director, and we were fortunate to collaborate with her to help bring her vision to fruition,” said producer Jason Blum. “I’m thrilled that movie loving audiences around the world will get to see the film soon.”
