Suspiria remake (watch it HERE) director Luca Guadagnino’s horror film / cannibal love story Bones and All has received good reviews – it’s sitting at 82% positive on Rotten Tomatoes, and our own JimmyO gave the film an 8/10 review you can read at THIS LINK. But it’s not the sort of movie that was ever going to set the box office on fire, and it has pulled in just $11 million during its three weeks of release. So it’s no surprise that United Artists will be sending the movie to PVOD on December 13th.
Bones and All is in good company, as IndieWire reports that major awards season contenders The Banshees of Inisherin and The Fabelmans (a box office failure directed by Steven Spielberg) will also be reaching PVOD on the same date.
Directed by Guadagnino from a screenplay by his Suspiria collaborator David Kajganich, Bones and All stars Taylor Russell (Escape Room) and Timothée Chalamet (Dune). The film tells the story of
first love between Maren (Russell), a young woman learning how to survive on the margins of society, and Lee (Chalamet), an intense and disenfranchised drifter, as they meet and join together for a thousand-mile odyssey which takes them through the back roads, hidden passages and trap doors of Ronald Reagan’s America. But despite their best efforts, all roads lead back to their terrifying pasts and to a final stand that will determine whether their love can survive their otherness.
Described as a “coming-of-age horror story” and a “horror love story”, the film follows
Maren Yearly on a cross-country trip as she searches for the father she’s never met in an attempt to understand why she has the urge to kill and eat the people that love her.
Chalamet and Russell are joined in the cast by Mark Rylance, André Holland, Michael Stuhlbarg, Francesca Scorsese, Anna Cobb, Chloë Sevigny, David Gordon Green, and original Suspiria star Jessica Harper.
