“Are you humans or are you demons?”
“We’re on vacation.”
That’s the awesomely hilarious button at the end of the sales trailer for Blood Conscious, a new social thriller from Timothy Covell that’s heading to the EFM in Berlin.
In the film, a vacationing family turns the tables on a mass shooter who claims to be fighting demonic forces.
Bloody Disgusting scored the first images and teaser for the film that’s pegged as “a smart and gripping genre movie with strong subtexts of American racism and collective delusions.”
Here’s the long synopsis:
“Kevin, his older sister, Brittney, and her fiancé, Tony, set off to their parents’ lakeside cottage expecting a leisurely weekend getaway, but little did they expect the horror that awaits them.
Their holiday turns into a trip from hell as they enter a scene of mass murder, where their parents and neighbours this side of the lake all lie dead.
Terror strikes when the armed murderer confronts them, alleging to be fighting demonic forces that had possessed them all. They pin him down and lock him up in the cellar but soon he claims to not to be alone down there.
As unexpected and traumatic events keep unfolding they will have to find a way to survive the night without turning on each other, or becoming possessed.“
It stars Oghenero Gbaje, DeShawn White, Lenny Thomas, and Nick Damici.
