Director Sebastian Gutierrez’s new thriller “Elizabeth Harvest” finally has a release date and is coming to theaters on Friday, August 10.
Gutierrez is no stranger to Hollywood, having directed the 2009 comedy “Women in Trouble” as well as screenwriting for 2006’s “Snakes on a Plane” and 2003’s “Gothika.”
“Elizabeth Harvest” is about Elizabeth (Abbey Lee) who travels to her new scientist husband’s huge estate for the first time only to become suspicious of how her husband (Ciaran Hinds) and his house staff treats her. Feeling increasingly suspicious, Elizabeth decides to investigate the secret behind one locked room he forbade her from entering alone.
Starring Abbey Lee (“Mad Max: Fury Road”), Carla Gugino (“Gerald’s Game”), Ciaran Hinds (“Game of Thrones), Matthew Beard (“The Imitation Game”) and Dylan Baker (“The Americans”), Gutierrez’s vision takes a spin on the infamous French folktale of Bluebeard.
Originally written and published by Charles Perrault in 1697, Bluebeard tells of a wealthy man with a knack for killing his wives, marrying and subsequently killing women regularly.
Variety writes, “Gutierrez pulls the rug and floorboards right out from under you [in] his impudently oddball gothic sci-fi melodrama. Indeed, you could describe the entire movie as an elaborate con job.”
