very personal film and it’s a thrill to know people are responding to it."
The film will screen at both the Razor Reel Fantastic Film
Festival in Bruges, Belgium on November 2nd and the Horrible Imaginings Film
Festival in San Diego November 10. It sees Shauna Henry in a haunting

film that DAUGHTERS OF DARKNESS director Harry Kumell calls "Most
interesting... mood aplenty, pretty images and lots and lots of blood."
BLOOD FOR IRINA is executive produced by David Gregory
(THEATRE BIZARRE, PLAGUE TOWN), Derek Curl (THE INNKEEPERS, HATCHET 2) and
