Director Biography - Amelia Moses

Amelia Moses is a Canadian filmmaker, currently based in Montreal. Her short body-horror film Undress Me (2017) screened at over thirty festivals worldwide, had a limited release on Shudder and was eventually picked up by Gunpowder and Sky’s online horror channel ALTER, with over 700,000 views.

Amelia’s work has been written about by The Hollywood Reporter, Broadly (VICE) and was featured in an article by White Little Lies entitled “Why the future of genre cinema is female.” Her films focus on the exploration of female anxieties through a horror lens. In 2018, her debut feature, Bleed With Me, was selected as part of Telefilm’s “Talent to Watch” program and had its world premiere at the 2020 Fantasia International Film Festival.

Her second feature, a werewolf thriller, Bloodthirsty premiered at Fantastic Fest in 2020. Both films are set to be released in 2021.

Director Statement

We can all get trapped in our head and start to question the intentions of those closest to us. But how far can our mind take us if we are desperate for social intimacy and connection?

Bleed With Me is a character-driven psychological horror film told through the perspective of Rowan, an emotionally unstable young woman. At the heart of the film is Rowan’s relationship with Emily: a friendship that turns to twisted codependency. Rowan idolizes her seemingly perfect friend but eventually learns that Emily suffers from her own strange psychosis.

My goal was to explore the insecurities and anxieties felt within a friendship and place them in a heightened, horror setting; pushing them to their limits. What if jealousy, attraction and idealization turned into fear, paranoia and violence?

As a filmmaker, I’m not interested in the “strong female lead.”I want to see women on screen who are flawed; women who make mistakes. With Bleed With Me, I wanted to show a darker, more twisted side of female friendship.

Through intimate camera work and stark sound design, Bleed With Me draws us into Rowan’s paranoid mind, leaving the audience in the discomfort of not knowing who the true villain of the story really is.
