IRINA is the inaugural production from new genre outfit Autonomy Pictures, comprised of executive producers Derek Curl (HOUSE OF THE DEVIL, STAKE LAND), Davd Gregory (THE THEATRE BIZARRE, PLAGUE TOWN) and Lewis Tice, of Danger After Dark. “BLOOD FOR IRINA fits our company’s dedication to supporting
emerging genre talent,” says Curl, CEO of Autonomy. “We
are delighted to collaborate with Chris Alexander on his film debut, with his unique and haunting take on vampirism.”
Alexander, who also scores the picture, says, “I wanted to make something that is intimate, dark, lonely, beautiful and
surreal, fueled by dread, imagery and emotion. I'm
confident that BLOOD FOR IRINA accomplishes this.”
BLOOD FOR IRINA is currently in post production, and features FX work from SILENT HILL's Paul Jones.
