A young man in a personal tailspin flees the US to Italy, where he sparks up a romance with a girl hiding a dark secret. What begins as a naturalistic romance in an idyllic Mediterranean town, takes an unexpected turn as the two lovers confront figurative and literal relationship monsters. Balancing dark humor, heart, and visceral thrills, SPRING evokes undercurrents of Beauty and the Beast by way of Linklater and early Cronenberg, while retaining a highly original style that we’ve come to expect from two of contemporary horror’s most interesting voices.
We are delighted to welcome back Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead to Celluloid Screams to introduce the film and participate in a Q&A.
