A new poster has arrived for last year’s festival hit Nina Forever, whose timely US release sees the film in cinemas February 12th, just in time for Valentine’s Day. Billed as a ‘fucked up fairy tale’, the morbid, bloody love story will be released by Epic Pictures, and later by StudioCanal in the UK.
The official synopsis reads: “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.”
Directed by brothers Ben and Chris Blaine, the British horror comedy went down a storm with critics and audiences at last summer’s festivals, winning Best Feature at Film 4’s Frightfest, a coveted accolade indeed. This week the film received multiple nominations from the British Independent Film Awards, including Best Debut Director for the brothers Blaine and Most Promising Newcomer for Abigail Hardingham.
