Uncork’d Entertainment has finally revealed the trailer for the upcoming thriller-horror film Breeder. The producers have only recently acquired North American rights to the Danish horror feature, ensuring that the film will be available to thriller fans in America.
Directed by Jens Dahl and produced by Maria Møller (known for Koko-Di Koko-Da, a surrealist psychological horror film with dark fantasy elements), Breeder deals with women who have been abducted and incarcerated for bio-hacking experiments.
Dr. Isabel Ruben, a ruthless businesswoman is on a quest to find the perfect method of de-aging. She abducts young women as part of the gruesome bio-hacking experiment to reverse the aging process.
One of the women, Mia Lindberg, starts to slowly uncover the secrets of the facility and the inhuman experiments underway. But does she find an escape, or find herself in a more tangled snare of lurking dangers? The answer lies at the end of the two-hour horror show.
Keith Leopard, the President of Uncork’d Entertainment, is really excited about this film and its release in January.
According to him, Breeder is more than a horror film as it reminds viewers of the reality of a world dominated by concepts of beauty and youth. He says,
— BREEDER is a superbly crafted horror film with a real-world reminder that we live in a world measured by youth and beauty. This is a film about the effects of aging, how the world looks upon you once you do, and a miraculous cure- at a cost… I’m excited for audiences to experience the film in January. —
Breeder stars Sara Hjort Ditlevsen as the inquisitive Mia Lindberg, Anders Heinrichsen as Thomas Lindberg, Morten Holst as ‘The Dog,’ Signe Egholm Olsen as Dr. Isabel Ruben, and Eeva Putro as Nika, among many others.
The popular Danish screenwriter Sissel Dalsgaard Thomsen has written the film. Famous for her work as a writer in The Return, Murdering Katarina, Skuld, Venus, and A Doll’s House, Thomsen is a known horror screenwriter. She was even nominated for Best Screenplay twice at the Ekko Shortlist Awards.
Jens Dahl will be at the helm of Breeder as the director. Dahl is a television showrunner-turned-film director who made his directorial debut with the 2017 drama 3 Things, starring the famed Lannister from Game of Thrones, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau.
The breeder has screened at a number of leading film festivals, including Sitges in Catalonia, Fantastic Zagreb Film Festival in Croatia, Night Visions in Finland, and MonsterFest in Australia. It is set to release on digital on January 11, 2022.
