Release Details For Eric England’s Contracted

One of my favorite films last year was Eric England’s Contracted. A brilliantly sad reinvention of  the zombie mythos. Star Najarra Townsend is remarkable in the role and I can’t imagine a better performance from anyone else. This is one to own.

 Contracted hits DVD on March 18th from IFC Midnight!

“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.”
