What would you do for your siblings?
New York-based filmmaker Perry Blackshear has wowed indie horror audiences with his feature films They Look Like People and The Siren. Now he’s back with his third featured film When I Consume You, a revenge tale about two siblings with a dark past.
Blackshear again teams up with creative collaborators MacLeod Andrews, Evan Dumouchel, and Margaret Ying Drake for When I Consume You. Alongside Libby Ewing, the team delivers a family drama about grief and redemption.
Ewing and Dumouchel play brother-sister duo Daphne and Wilson Shaw who practically raised one another. They’ve protected each other from everything life has thrown their way. Daphne’s professional life is soaring and she’s looking to adopt a child. Wilson is interviewing for a position at a local school, hoping to become a teacher. But Daphne has an unsettling, dangerous stalker whom she can’t seem to shake, and now threatens to destroy them both. They hunt for their tormentor through the shadowy streets of Brooklyn, honing their bodies and minds for a showdown. But this foe may prove to be more than they can handle. They will break and rebuild themselves if necessary to save each other, and protect the light they know is in this world for them… if only they can persevere.

According to the press notes, “When I Consume You confronts the vulnerabilities that people struggle with every day through a genre lens to create a chillingly intimate indie horror nightmare.”
The film is written, directed, and lensed by Blackshear, who also produced alongside Andrews, Dumouchel, and Ewing.
When I Consume You comes to VOD on August 16.
