Queer Werewolf Movie ‘My Animal’ to Hit Theaters Soon!

My Animal

Lesbian horror werewolf film ‘My Animal’ will be shown in theaters soon as Paramount picks up the rights for its release!

While distribution plans are yet to be determined, Paramount Worldwide Acquisition Group will handle the global release of the 2023 Sundance Film Festival’s Midnight selection film ‘My Animal’. In fact, Paramount had already acquired the rights even prior to the film’s debut at the said festival.

‘My Animal’ stars Amandla Stenberg alongside Bobbi Salvör Menuez (‘I Love Dick’, ‘Under the Silver Lake’). 

The official Sundance synopsis says, “Tamped down by an oppressive family dynamic orbiting around her alcoholic mother, kept on the sidelines of the hockey team she yearns to join, and imprisoned in her own home each full moon, Heather is in a struggle for her life against the constrictive forces in her small northern town. When an intriguing figure skater enters the rink, Heather’s life, sexuality, and personhood are pried open. Jonny (Stenberg) and Heather (Menuez) have bombastic chemistry that plays out on screen with attitude, style, and ferocity. Far from the typical werewolf story, Heather’s condition is one of many reasons for her outcast status. Luckily, Jonny is happy to join her on the outskirts.”

‘My Animal’ is directed by Jacqueline Castel, written by Jae Matthews, and produced by Andrew Bronfman (‘The Kid Detective’) and Michael Solomon (‘Black Conflux’).

Talking about casting Bobbi and Amandla, Castel said that the two were her “first choices” because “the synchronicity of their dual commitment is the kind of magically aligned rarity that a director always dreams of.” Meanwhile, she said that Paramount’s distribution of the film “completed the circle.”

While there’s no exact date yet for its release, we surely are looking forward to it! Who’s not up for a lesbian horror love story anyway?
