|Lightbulb Film Distribution is pleased to share the poster for new horror film, My Heart Can’t Beat Unless You Tell It To, which will be coming to Digital Download from June 28.|
Following its world premiere at Tribeca last year, the film has played a string of genre festivals – including Nightstream, Sitges and São Paulo. The UK premiere took place at Celluloid Screams.
My Heart Can’t Beat Unless You Tell It To is an elevated-genre feature directed by Jonathan Cuartas and starring Patrick Fugit (Almost Famous, First Man), Ingrid Sophie Schram (Phantom Thread) and Owen Campbell (As You Are, The Miseducation of Cameron Post).
The film follows siblings Dwight (Patrick Fugit) and Jessie (Ingrid Sophie Schram) who put all their energy into keeping their little brother Thomas (Owen Campbell) alive. But he craves human blood.
|“Following its world premiere at Tribeca, we are thrilled to be bringing My Heart Can’t Beat to UK audiences. Debut filmmaker, Jonathan Cuartas, has created something very special. It’s a film about family – about what we would all do to protect them. So it’s relatable. It’s just that your brother may or may not be a vampire. Patrick Fugit – best known for his role in Almost Famous – is mesmerising in the lead role” commented Sales & Acquisitions Director, Peter Thompson.|
My Heart Can’t Beat Unless You Tell It To will be released on Digital Download from June 28.
