Monkey Knuckle Films is going to make a full length feature film of the novel, “Milk-Blood” by Mark Matthews.
“MILK-BLOOD is true reality horror, with supernatural elements that only serve to make it more believable,” explains executive producer Michael Bradford. “The story will certainly hold an audience.”
“Milk-Blood” is about 10-year old Lilly, with a heart defect. She lives in Detroit, in an area where poverty, urban blight, despair, and addiction are as much of a threat to her life as the living and dead that dwell there.
The title comes from the Neil Young song, “The Needle and the Damage Done” and refers to the extensive lengths a heroin addict will go to in order to maintain their high. Take a listen to it if you like.
About the film producers:
Monkey Knuckle Films LLC has formed in 2015. The founders have worked with horror actors like Sid Haig from “The Devil’s Rejects” and most of the cast of “The Evil Dead.” Their current film, “Elder Island”, is set for release in 2016.
About the Novel:
“Milk-Blood” was a semi-finalist for the 2015 Best Kindle Book Awards and is available on Amazon in Paperback, Audiobook and Kindle. The sequel is scheduled for release in early 2016.
“The sequel is some twisted material,” says Matthews, “but with a purpose. Horror without heart doesn’t appeal to me, and I don’t think to many readers.”
