First Trailer and Poster for Vampire Thriller MY HEART CAN’T BEAT UNLESS YOU TELL IT TO

My Heart Can’t Beat Unless You Tell It To
First look at director Jonathan Cuartas' gritty vampire tale.

Like the recent British indie Rose: A Love Story, writer/director Jonathan CuartasMy Heart Can’t Beat Unless You Tell It To pares down the vampire mythos to its basics for a gritty look at how a vampire might realistically survive in the modern world.

Owen Campbell plays a young man who needs blood to survive, with his older brother (Patrick Fugit) and sister (Ingrid Sophie Schram) going to murderous lengths to keep him fed.

My Heart Can’t Beat Unless You Tell It To is in US cinemas and on VOD from June 25th. A UK/ROI release has yet to be announced.

Check out the trailer and poster below.




The official synopsis reads:

Dwight and his sister Jessie reach a crossroads over what to do about their younger brother Thomas' mysterious illness. The increasingly dangerous task of keeping him alive weighs heavy on sensitive Dwight, and as a fiercely private and close-knit family unit, Thomas and Jessie depend on him and the rituals they've learned in order to keep their secret. Dwight yearns for another life, but Jessie will stop at nothing to keep her family together.
