A dangerously red poster has been unveiled for horror-thriller Pet which stars Dominic Monaghan and Ksenia Solo. It embodies the terrifying love story that the film centres on, focusing on the woman’s entrapment in a design similar to a prison cell. The poster encourages us to never let go of what we love and in a far too literal sense, the plot follows a man who vows to never let go of his former high school crush.
[Pet is] a psychological thriller that deals with the themes of identity, loneliness, selflessness and what it means to truly possess another. It’s told through the prism of two isolated people, Seth and Holly, seemingly different yet more similar than they even knew. Pet is at its heart a dark love story which examines how much one is willing to sacrifice in the name of love.
Check out the first footage from Pet below, which shows Monaghan’s character Seth making a failed pass at a woman called Holly (Solo) in a restaurant. The film recently screened at the SXSW festival to overall positive reviews, with the film being praised for its twisty nature.
Pet has been directed by Carles Torrens (Apartment 143) and additionally stars Jennette McCurdy, Nathan Parsons, John Ross Bowie, Da’Vone McDonald and Janet Song.
