Eureka acquire all UK & Irish rights to nordic horror BREEDER

Eureka Entertainment have acquired all UK & Irish rights to nordic horror Breeder.

Directed by Jens Dahl, whose credits include co-writing Nicolas Winding-Refn’s Pusher, the movie tells the story of a renowned health supplement company, run by a ruthless businesswoman, which is selecting and abducting young women as part of an experiment bio-hacking babies’ DNA to enable her clients to reverse the ageing process. When Mia goes to investigate, she finds herself trapped, branded and tortured in a grim underground facility.

The screenplay was written by Sissel Dalsgaard Thomsen and producers were Amalie Lyngbo Quist and Maria Møller Christoffersen for Beo Starling.

Co-producer Maria Møller Christoffersen (Koko-Di Koko-Da) comments “The moral murkiness of biohacking, which is increasingly made available to the mega-rich through the exploitation of cheap labour and poor populations, is a strikingly relevant and provocative topic in our society today, where youth and beauty are powerful currencies in their own right. Using the conventions of the horror genre and looking through the eyes of a strong female protagonist, Breeder asks its audience: how far are you willing to go, and what/who are you willing to sacrifice, to stay young and relevant forever?”

Breeder is expected to play UK horror festivals later this year, before receiving a wider UK & Irish release early next year.
