The genre-bending horror-comedy, Here For Blood centres on Phoebe, a college student who needs to find a substitute for her regular babysitting job so she has more time to study for an upcoming exam. Striking out with her usual circle of friends, she asks her boyfriend Tom, a well-muscled rowdy pro-wrestler struggling to make ends meet, for a big favour. Not really into it, he finally caves and reluctantly agrees to baby sit the precocious 10-year-old, Grace. Let the mayhem begin. A group of cultists attack the home and attempt to kidnap her, unaware and unprepared when they come up against a remarkably capable strongman with a real knack for violence. Here for Blood was the Closing Gala film at the 2022 Toronto After Dark Film Festival.
