Amazon Prime Video teams up with Blumhouse for the upcoming horror-thriller, Run Sweetheart Run, and today we got our first look at the film with the release of its official trailer – which you can check out below.
Originally released at 2020’s Sundance Film Festival, the film was set for an original theatrical release in May 2020 but got delayed due to the Covid pandemic. Given the events at the time, the decision was then made to sell the rights to Amazon.
Its official synopsis reads:
Initially apprehensive when her boss insists she meets with one of his most important clients, single mom Cherie is relieved and excited when she meets charismatic Ethan. The influential businessman defies expectations and sweeps Cherie off her feet. But at the end of the night, when the two are alone together, he reveals his true, violent nature. Battered and terrified, she flees for her life, beginning a relentless game of cat-and-mouse with a bloodthirsty assailant hell-bent on her utter destruction. In this edge-of-your-seat dark thriller, Cherie finds herself in the crosshairs of a conspiracy stranger and more evil than she could have ever imagined.
The film comes to us from director Shana Feste and stars Game of Thrones’ Pilou Asbæk alongside Ella Balinska.
Shohreh Aghdashloo, Clark Gregg, Aml Ameen, Dayo Okeniyi, and Betsy Brandt will co-star in the film which was written by Keith Josef Adkins and Kellee Terrell.
Run Sweetheart Run lands on Amazon Prime Video on October 28th. Not a Prime member? Try a free 30-Day trial here.
