Danish horror film Breeder starts filming

IN PRODUCTION. Filming kicked off Friday, 13 September, on Danish production company Beo Starling's ‘Breeder’, their upcoming survival horror film directed by Jens Dahl.

Director Jens Dahl is starting up his sophomore feature film, 'Breeder', another kind of love story and a modern take on survival horror, according to the director.

An experiment involving biohacking is keeping a young couple trapped in a dangerous and disconcerting situation. In nightmarish ways, the experiment questions basic human behaviour by asking: How far will we go to stay young forever?

Jens Dahl wrote and directed '3 Things' (2017), his debut as feature film director. He co-wrote Nicolas Winding Refn's cult classic 'Pusher' (1996) and has since written for a number of feature films and tv series.

The cast includes Sara Hjort Ditlevsen ('Borgman'), Signe Egholm Olsen ('Angels in Fast Motion'), Morten Holst ('Sons of Denmark') and Anders Heinrichsen ('Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets').

'Breeder' is written by Sissel Dalsgaard Thomsen and produced by Amalie Lyngbo Quist and Maria Møller Christoffersen for Beo Starling with support from the Danish Film Institute, LevelK and Blockbuster. The film will be released in fall 2020 by Blockbuster and LevelK.
