After years of songwriting for notable musicians with Madison Beer, JoJo, Demi Lovato, and Hailee Steinfeld, Lowell took a different turn towards a fictional werewolf story with Bloodthirsty. So, she turned to her mother and filmmaker Wendy Hill-Tout for guidance and assistance.
As a result, the writing pair came up with a different werewolf story that hasn’t been told on screen before.
The movie stars Lauren Beatty, Greg Bryk, Katharine King So, and Michael Ironside. Amelia Moses directed the film.
Here’s the official synopsis:
Grey, an indie singer, whose first album was a smash hit, gets an invitation to work with notorious music producer Vaughn Daniels at his remote studio in the woods. Together with her girlfriend/lover Charlie, they arrive at his mansion, and the work begins. But Grey is having visions that she is a wolf, and as her work with emotionally demanding Vaughn deepens, the vegan singer begins to hunger for meat and the hunt. As Grey starts to transform into a werewolf, she begins to find out who she really is, and begins to discover the family she never knew. What will it take to become a great artist and at what cost to her humanity?
