Get ready for a Halloween treat that will eat your heart out with Blumhouse’s Sweetheart. Kiersey Clemons is a young woman trapped on a tropical desert island alone who suddenly finds herself struggling to stay alive as a mysterious malevolent force overtakes everything around her.
Kiersey Clemons stars in JD Dillard’s heart-pounding survival thriller that will leave you on the edge of your seat. All the horror will be available just in time for Halloween, with the digital version arriving on October 22, 2019 from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment.
In Sweetheart, Jenn, played by Kiersey Clemons, finds herself completely alone on a small tropical island after her boat goes down. By day, every ounce of her strength, cunning, and courage is strained simply to find food, outlast the elements, and survive. But as the sun sets, Jenn’s waking nightmare inexorably grows into terror, when a malevolent force comes to stalk the jungle for prey.
