Dark Thriller NEW LIFE Opens in Select Theaters & On Demand May 3

New Life Title Teaser
Brainstorm Media’s NEW LIFE, the celebrated genre-blending horror thriller from John Rosman, releases in theaters and on demand in North America on May 3.

Rosman's feature directorial debut is a character-driven story that upends traditional horror conventions through its intimate exploration of mortality. The film follows the story of a mysterious woman on the run (Hayley Erin) and the resourceful fixer assigned to bring her in (Sonya Walger). As their two stories inexorably link, the stakes of their pursuit rise to apocalyptic proportions.

NEW LIFE kicked off its festival run with its world premiere at the 2023 Fantasia International Film Festival and quickly became a festival favorite, earning critical acclaim and continuing with buzzed-about screenings and stops at FrightFest London, Overlook Film Festival, Panic Fest, Florida Film Festival, Santa Fe Independent Film Festival, and the Heartland International Film Festival, where it took the 2023 Audience Choice Award.

The film is written and directed by Rosman, who pulled from his documentary background by recalling a story he worked on about a young woman diagnosed with ALS (Summer Whisman, to whom the film is dedicated), which would heavily motivate the feature. NEW LIFE is produced by T. Justin Ross, producer on Shudder’s record-breaking hit The Mortuary Collection and the Judy Greer-led Aporia, and Mike Marchlewski, and executive produced by David Lawson Jr., producer of the Independent Spirit-Award Nominated Sundance darling Something in the Dirt, critically acclaimed science fiction horror The Endless, and EP on the recent SXSW breakout Things Will Be Different. Sonya Walger (For All Mankind, Lost), Hayley Erin (Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists, The Young and the Restless), and Tony Amendola (Annabelle, Curse of Llorona) star. 

Rosman was named one of Filmmaker magazine's 25 New Faces of Independent Film 2023 and, prior to developing and shooting his feature debut, was an Emmy-Award-winning journalist for public media, with stories appearing on national and international outlets including NPR and PBS.
