She Never Died — a tangential companion piece to He Never Died — takes the tale of a cannibalistic mortal and twists in a decidedly feminist edge. Following a successful festival run and by popular demand, A71 has pulled up the American EST and VOD release, making the film available on Apple TV on April 17th. For those north of the border, She Never Died is available on EST and VOD with Apple TV, Bell, Rogers, Sasktel, Shaw and Telus beginning April 14th.
A highly anticipated gender-swapped sequel to He Never Died — which starred iconic punk rocker Henry Rollins — She Never Died, directed by Audrey Cummings (Darken, Berkshire County) and written by Jason Krawcyzk (He Never Died), stars Olunike Adeliyi (American Gods, Saw 3D: The Final Chapter), Peter MacNeill (Crash, A History of Violence), Kiana Madeira (Giant Little Ones, Level 16), Michelle Nolden (Saving Hope) and Noah Danby (Shadowhunters).
Adeliyi stars as Lacey, a socially detached loner cursed with immortality and her never-ending tedium of existence. In her attempts to keep her cannibalistic compulsions in check, she seeks out the darkest souls humanity has to offer and faces her inner demons while simultaneously finding her next meal.
She Never Died had its world premiere this fall at the Cinefest Sudbury International Film Festival, its European premiere at Grimmfest (U.K), and its U.S. premiere at ScreamFest in LA. It won Best Actress & the Vanguard Award at the Blood in the Snow Film Festival in Toronto, and Best Director at the New York City Horror Film Festival.
The film is produced by David Miller of A71 Productions alongside Jennifer Mesich of White Eagle Entertainment, and executive producers Zach Hagen, Krawczyk of AES Productions, Dan Peel, Audrey Cummings and Bill Marks of Vortex Pictures and Words.
