Rose Glass follows Saint Maud with a queer thriller about a bodybuilder and her gym owner girlfriend. Watch the first Love Lies Bleeding trailer here. 

Saint Maud announced Rose Glass as a major new talent in British genre filmmaking. The final few seconds of her 2019 horror film still haunt me, but for her next film, Glass is doing something completely different. The London-born director is swapping religious horror for a queer love story between a bodybuilder and gym owner with a dodgy past – and we couldn’t be more excited. 

Take a look at the first trailer for Love Lies Bleeding. 

Set a trailer for any film to Bronski Beat’s Smalltown Boy and you’ve got my interest. If you also add a tagline like “Revenge gets ripped”, I’m all yours. Love Lies Bleeding does both, and the trailer is also deliciously steamy and violent. 

Kristen Stewart and Katy O’Brien are joined by Jena Malone, Ed Harris, Dave Franco and Anna Baryshnikov in the cast. Glass collaborated with Weronika Tofilska on the script and Clint Mansell has provided music. 2024 is truly shaping up to be an extraordinary year for films

Love Lies Bleeding is heading to the 2024 edition of Sundance Film Festival where it will premiere under the Midnight section of the festival. The section has a long history of showing provocative, visceral films, so we can expect Love Lies Bleeding to be a singular, shocking experience. 

Here’s the official synopsis: “Reclusive gym manager Lou (Stewart) falls hard for Jackie (O’Brian), an ambitious bodybuilder headed through town to Vegas in pursuit of her dream. But their love ignites violence, pulling them deep into the web of Lou’s criminal family.”

Love Lies Bleeding is in UK cinemas 19 April.
