Eric England‘s Contracted (2013) may be gut wrenching for most but those tempted to own the horror film on DVD will be able to do so this upcoming March 18, 2014. So far it seems like the DVD will not come with any bonus features. Make sure you read our review. Contracted stars Najarra Townsend, Caroline Williams and Alice Macdonald.
Contracted tells the cautionary tale of Samantha (Townsend), a twenty-something party girl with little discipline and even less direction. After experiencing a lapse in her relationship with her lover (Stegeman), she’s forced to move back in with her overbearing mother (Williams). Samantha’s only means to escape seems to come in the form of a flower competition that she’s determined to win. Things take a turn for the worse when Samantha spends the night with mysterious man (Barrett), leaving her hung-over and guilt-ridden. However, something else is wrong with Samantha. Something is infecting her. Unsure of the disease or the man who gave it to her, she must attempt to hide it from her loved ones. Now, Samantha realizes she is not just the victim of an STD, but rather the host of something much more catastrophic. Prepare to witness a zombie film like you’ve never even imagined.
Directed by Eric England
Official Synopsis: During a rough period in her life, beautiful Samantha reluctantly decides to attend her best friend's party, and even though she still struggles with a previous addiction, she unwisely accepts a drink from a complete stranger. As a result, shortly after, hapless Samantha considerably inebriated, she will end up raped in the backseat of the malicious predator's car, however, from that point on, the terrible incident will be the least of her problems. Straight away and rather inexplicably, poor Samantha will begin noticing rapid and drastic organic changes in her body, and being unable to pinpoint the origin of the dramatic transformation, within the next 72 hours, she will embrace her gruesome and pitiless fate as well as the certainty that she is falling apart. Literally.
