Synopsis for ROT
When Madison’s ex-boyfriend goes missing, his friends expect her to lead the search to find him. But something vile has taken over his body, and what they find is worse than any of them could have imagined.
Writer/director Andrew Merrill says of the experience of making ROT that “I’m incredibly proud of what our team pulled off, and so grateful that everybody stuck with me through all the late nights, cramped apartments, and general craziness of independent filmmaking. I’m excited for ROT to find it’s audience, and I hope it will resonate with them as much as it has with me.”
Shaked Berenson, CEO of Entertainment Squad, the parent company of The Horror Collective, says, “The Horror Collective’s mission is to uplift new and exciting voices, to help create the next generation of horror masters. ROT is one of those movies that is a perfect example of the kind of people and content we want to work with and we’re proud to add to our slate.”
The Horror Collective’s Heidi Honeycutt adds, “ROT goes places only Cronenberg has dared to tread thus far. It’s an incredibly effective and shocking picture that horror fans are going to enjoy as they shiver.”
The film will be released on November 19, 2020, exclusively through Amazon, as announced this morning by Deadline.
