Love Bite in Liverpool next week, wider next month

I was wondering what had happened to Andy De Emmony's teenage werewolf picture Love Bite, which was originally announced for a summer 2012 release. It looks like it's hitting cinemas on 9th November, but there is a one-off screening next Friday (12th October) at the Plaza Cinema in Liverpool.

De Emmony's TV work includes episodes of Red Dwarf and Father Ted as well as the 2010 version of Whistle and I'll Come to You. The film stars Ed Speleers (A Lonely Place to Die), Luke Pasqualino, Kierston Wareing (The Holding), Timothy Spall and Jessica Szohr (Piranha, Gossip Girl) as the token American. Make-up effects by Kristyan Mallett (Kill Keith, Strippers vs Werewolves).

Here's the trailer:


  1. That is a nice surprise - it is only a couple of minutes around the corner from me. I watched the original Star Wars films there when they case out and one of the prequels (the last one if memory serves). The local community came together to save the fine building from closure and have done a lovely job of bringing it back to its glory (when I went as a nipper it was a proper flea pit). So it is great to see it getting première like this, I wonder if there is a local connection.

    1. Seems this has been cancelled - the page has disappeared from the Plaza website and it isn't listed on there or the cinema's recorded message.

      Not sure why as it has been shown at TIFF, so the film is finished. A bit of a mystery.
