Blumhouse horror thriller Run Sweetheart Run is coming to Amazon this October

Back in February 2020, we heard that Blumhouse horror thriller Run Sweetheart Run was going to be released in May of that year… but then the pandemic hit and that release obviously didn’t happen. Now, after two years of sitting on a shelf, Run Sweetheart Run must finally find its way out into the world. Amazon has revealed that the film will be released through their Prime Video service on October 28Th.

In the film, Ella Balinska (Netflix’s Resident Evil series), Pilou Asbæk (Ghost in the Shell), Aml Ameen (I may Destroy yourself), Dayo Okeniyi (Fresh), Betsy Brandt (Breaking Bad), Shohreh Aghdashloo (The expansion), and Clark Gregg (The Avengers).

Inspired by a bad date writer/director Shana Feste continued, this “feminist horror/thriller” shows what happens when

a blind date turns violent and the woman must walk home through Los Angeles as she is pursued by her date.

Keith Josef Adkins and Kellee Terrell also have writing credits on the film. Here’s another synopsis:

After what begins as dinner with a client, a single mother (Ella Balinska) is hunted by a monstrous and seemingly unstoppable assailant (Pilou Asbæk) in this terrifyingly dark thriller.

Party produced Run Sweetheart Run for Quiet Girl Productions alongside Effie T. Brown, Blumhouse’s Jason Blum and Automatik’s Brian Kavanaugh-Jones. Jennifer Besser, Couper Samuelson, Bea Sequeira and Jeanette Volturno serve as executive producers.

With the film’s much-anticipated release just a few months away (again), here’s hoping we get a trailer for this one soon. I have been looking forward to Run Sweetheart Run for two and a half years at this point, so I’ll definitely be checking it out as soon as it’s available on Amazon.
