Another unsettling character study revolving around a young woman who finds herself increasingly worn down by her own inner anguish, it makes perfect sense that Stewart would want to work under Glass’s confident vision.

Although love lies bleeding is labeled a thriller, not a horror, it’s easy to assume that horror elements will factor into the plot, based on the work of these two confident filmmakers.
