About the Movie
Evan (Lou Taylor Pucci, Evil Dead, Thumbsucker) is a young American fleeing to Europe to escape his past. While backpacking along the Italian coast, everything changes during a stop at an idyllic Italian village, where he meets and instantly connects with the enchanting and mysterious Louise (Nadia Hilker). A flirtatious romance begins to bloom between the two; however, Evan soon realizes that Louise has been harboring a monstrous, primordial secret that puts both their relationship and their lives in jeopardy. A beautiful, fluid genre-bender from directors Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead (Resolution), Spring is an unforgettable romance of mythical proportions.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: The actors get a chance to create a real relationship, and they make the most of the opportunity.
Fresh: If Richard Linklater attempted a remake of Val Lewton's Cat People, the end result might resemble Spring.
Fresh: The suspense and pleasure of Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead's talking-and-tentacles horror romance Spring lies in discovering what shape the film is going to take.
Fresh: The protagonist of this low-budget indie is so well characterized that it might have developed into a straight drama instead of the horror movie it becomes, though of course that's the key to most good genre films.
Surprisingly, I really enjoyed this film. I do not usually view this genre of film but including romance with horror makes this an intriguing story. Evan and Louise are very likable, believable characters despite her "identity" problem. The actors who portray them are very talented. The scenes of the Italian coast were breathtaking.
Strange, horrifying and beautiful
Horror movies can be original! The film flows easily... It catches my attention on the first 10 minutes and never let it go away. Fantastic....
