Racy New ‘Nina Forever’ Sets Up Bloody Valentine’s Day
Epic Pictures Group will release the critically acclaimed horror/romance film Nina Forever on February 12, 2016, Valentine’s Day weekend.
“Nina Forever follows Holly (Abigail Hardingham), as she begins a relationship with her co-worker Rob (Cian Barry), who is grieving over the recent death of his girlfriend Nina (Fiona O’Shaughnessy) from a motorcycle accident. Holly has fallen for Rob and is determined to help him though his grief. Yet every time they make love, Nina appears; tangled, bloody and still fixated on Rob. Holly doesn’t freak out and run – she can deal with the dead girl sharing their bed, their lives, their minds. If it’s what Rob needs, it’s what she’ll do, regardless of the consequences.”
Nina Forever is said to be a “fucked up fairy tale”. Patrick Cooper called it “a morbidly funny horror-romance” in his review. The trailer gives you a taste of just how morbid things get…
Epic Pictures acquired the film following its world premiere at the 2015 SXSW Film Festival, where it received widespread critical acclaim and generated strong word-of-mouth buzz from audiences. StudioCanal UK will also release the film in the United Kingdom.
Written and directed by Ben and Chris Blaine, Nina Forever was honored with multiple British Independent Film Awards nominations this week, including Best Debut Director for The Blaine Brothers and Most Promising Newcomer for lead actress Abigail Hardingham. The film was previously recognized with the Best Feature award at FrightFest 2015.
