NINA FOREVER, a darkly comedic romantic horror story written and directed by the Blaine Brothers, will have its World Premiere at the SXSW Film Festival on Saturday, March 14 (details below).
Reminiscent of intelligent, multi-layered genre films like Let the Right One In and The Babadook, NINA FOREVER follows Holly (Abigail Hardinham), as she begins a relationship with her co-worker Rob (Cian Barry), who is grieving over the recent death of his girlfriend Nina (Fiona O’Shaughnessy, Utopia). Holly has fallen for Rob and is determined to help him though his grief. Yet every time they make love, Nina appears; tangled, bloody and still fixated on Rob. Holly doesn’t freak out and run – she can deal with the dead girl sharing their bed, their lives, their minds. If it’s what Rob needs, it’s what she’ll do, regardless of what the consequences may be.

Drawn into a relationship, the first time they’re in bed together so is Nina. A tangled and bloody mess of broken limbs, she is very much dead but still here, still talking, still angry…
However Holly doesn’t freak out and run – she is determined to be the one who heals Rob’s wounds. She can deal with the dead girl sharing their bed, their lives, their minds. If it’s what Rob needs, it’s what Holly will do, whatever the consequences…
